Use ANI/CLI Authentication for Audio Connection


What is ANI/CLI Authentication?

CLI (caller line identification), or ANI (automatic number identification), is a form of caller ID.

Here's how it works:
  1. The phone number that you call into meetings with is added to your WebEx preferences.

     

  2. You call into the audio portion of the meeting.

     

  3. The system verifies the number that you called in against the number added to your WebEx preferences.

     

  4. You are directed to the correct meeting without entering a meeting number.

     

If you have a host account and your site is enabled for ANI/CLI, then you can
  • schedule a meeting with dial-in ANI/CLI teleconferencing authentication.

     

  • specify a phone number to be authenticated when you call in to any ANI/CLI enabled audio conference. However, you will be authenticated only if you were invited by email during the scheduling process.

     

  • specify an audio PIN to prevent "spoofers" from using your number to dial in.

     

Schedule a Meeting with ANI/CLI Authentication

        
1    Log in to your WebEx site.
2    Go to Host a Meeting > Schedule a Meeting. The Schedule a Meeting page appears.
3    Select Change audio conference. The Audio Conference Settings dialog box appears.
4    Select Enable audio conference CLI authentication when participants call in, if it is not already selected.
5    Schedule your meeting as you normally would.

Specify a Phone Number for Call-In Authentication

You can set authentication for any phone number listed in your user profile.

        
1    Log in to your Meeting Center website.
2    Go to My WebEx and select Preferences.
3    In the Audio section, select Set up, or, if you have already set audio options, expand the Audio section.
4    Under My Phone Numbers, beside the phone number you want to be authorized, check Call-in authentication.
5    Select Save.

Specify Authentication PIN for Host Account

        
1    Log in to your WebEx site.
2    Go to My WebEx and select Preference.
3    In the Audio section, select Set up, or, if you have already set audio options, expand the Audio section.
4    Under My Phone Numbers, enter a 4-digit PIN number in the PIN: box.
5    Select Save.

Edit Stored Numbers

Before You Begin

 

  • Do not join the audio portion of a meeting until after you edit your number.

     

  • Any changes do not take place until the next time you join.

     

  • You cannot be in an audio conference by phone while you are editing your phone number.

     

        
1    Join the meeting from your computer, but do not call in.
2    On the Quick Start page, select More Options.
3    Select Call Me, or if you already have a number listed under “Call Me,” select Call me at a different number.
4    Update your phone number.
5    Select Call Me.
