How to Set Up Your Softphone
In this short tutorial, we will show you how to install and set up your softphone. These instructions are created for those using the Bria Stretto softphone from Counterpath.
When we have completed the installation of your services, we will send you a series of emails. The first email will contain confirmation that your services are ready.
- The subject line of this email will be: “Installation Completed”.
- This email contains your new number (if applicable) and a message describing additional emails you will receive.
Next, we will send a series of emails with your Bria Stretto download information. (One for each softphone.)
- The subject line of these emails will be: “AVOXI Bria Stretto Configuration”.
- This email includes download links for your Bria Stretto, as well as login information to access it once you have installed the softphone.
Now, it is time to install your Bria Stretto softphone.
To begin, click on the download link that is appropriate for your computer (Windows or Mac). Choose the destination you would like to save it to and click the Save button.
If you are running on a Linux system, you will need to talk with your Account Manager, as you will need a different product.
After downloading the execution file, activate it to begin the download. This will open a window asking if you would like to run this file. Click Run to continue, as shown below.
If your computer is on a protected network, you may need the permission of your administrator to complete the installation. Have your administrator their information to continue.
Choose your preferred language and click OK.
Next, your computer may ask you to update some prerequisite programs that the Bria Stretto softphone needs to work. Click OK to continue.
Now, the Install Wizard will open to install the Bria Stretto. Click Next to begin.
Click the Check Box to agree to the license agreement and click Next to choose the destination for the download.

After the installation is complete, you will be presented with a screen that asks you to finalize the installation. Click Finish to exit the wizard.
