The Yate Client

Do you remember the chapter about the VoIP client as a way of using Yate? It wasn’t long ago. Now we’ll see in more detail how the YateClient looks and what it does.
First of all you mustn’t think on the YateClient as being a totally different component beside the server. In essence are one and the same thing. The YateClient is more like a frontend for the Yate Console adapted to suit the needs of the home user.

So, like stated the YateClient comes with a Graphic User Interface accompanied by a sound module which makes your attempt to place a call to your friend from Europe to Alaska in the middle of the night a matter of seconds. Of course, both of you must have the appropriate connections to talk, and his microphone to be out from the freezing state. But this is only a plain practical example of a peer to peer conversation. YateClient permits you also to make a PC2Phone call and also supports calling to an IVR. Let’s see what the YateClient provides in more detail to the user.

First of all the YateClient comes, like other components, in three versions. One for Windows, one for Linux and one for Mac. All three provide the same functionality for the end user and are developed under QT.

The client can be used to make calls through all the three protocols Yate implements for communication, namely H323, SIP and IAX. The protocol is selected for the list above the address, in the middle you write the address you want to call depending on the selected protocol, and all you have to do at this moment is to press Call.

The addresses have the following format depending on the protocol:

  • for H323: h323/username@ipadress:port
  • for SIP: sip/sip:username@ipadress:port
  • for IAX: iax/username@ipaddress/number

To finish a call, as you probably figured out already that the solution is to press the Hangup button.
In case of an incoming call YateClient permits you to accept or reject it.
Another feature Yate provides as alternative to peer to peer calls is redirecting your calls through a third party service like the Free World Dialup for example. For this the accounts list is provided.

More configurations options are present in the YateClient but we’ll see more of these in the dedicated chapter.
