Configuring PBX Data Logger

Our software should work in the TCP client mode. It means that our software will initiate connection with the PBX and the PBX will work as a server. Add one or several PBX IP addresses here (the IP address of the NEC Aspire [Format2,Date]). The port number should match the port that you have defined within the PBX (60010 in the example below).
