  • For this integration to work, you must have a RingCentral account.

By enabling this option you will be:

The status of the softphone will either be Online or Offline. Please note that when the softphone is offline, you will not be able to make or receive calls in Zoho CRM.

  1. Custom phone
    Apart from the softphone, you can also make calls by specifying the phone number. When you place a call to your customer, RingCentral will call your device first. A voice prompt will ask you to press 1. Once that is done, RingCentral will call your customer (or the number that you wish to call). 

RingCentral Browser Calling

Browser calling for RingCentral allows you to make calls directly from CRM without having to toggle between your CRM account and RingCentral. WebRTC plugins are installed to give hassle-free browser calling and a real-time communication will be established with the end user.

You need to choose the Browser option from the call preferences pop-up to make calls through your browser. You can also save your preferences along with the outbound Caller ID of the recipient, so that you can easily identify your callers to your RingCentral numbers while making outbound calls.

You can now make calls directly from your browser without having to use a softphone. This also allows you to directly attend the incoming calls within your CRM.

Browser Calling for RingCentral

Browser calling for RingCentral allows users to make calls directly from your CRM without having to toggle between the CRM account and RingCentral software. WebRTC plugins are installed to give hassle-free browser calling and a real-time communication with the end user.

Let’s take a look at the following network connectivity components that are required to be included in the user network.

Firewall Configuration

Firewall includes a Wide-Area Network interface such as a DSL, Ethernet or a cable modem. Firewall configuration allows outgoing TCP and UDP port control to the public Internet from the browser that uses the RingCentral client. It also enables the opening of ports so that the client server has time to exchange information with the remote server.


Router provides routing, traffic directing, packet forwarding and also provides support for ping and traceroute ICMP, bandwidth management, packet prioritization and smart packet inspection.

Firewall Access

Firewall access ensures that the outbound and inbound firewall port is opened between the internal user network and the ISP WAN for the applications such as, Call control, RTP media, telephone provisioning and registration, and Auxiliary services. This firewall access allows the call control and media path connectivity.

WebRTC plugins

WebRTC helps realtime multimedia applications to function without any installation of additional extensions, or plugins. It enables Real Time Communication to the end user independent of the browser being used. The following are the ports to be opened before enabling the browser option under RingCentral call preferences.

Traffic Type
Source Port Number
Destination Port Number
Signaling and (secured) Media (WebRTC)
5060, 6182, 8080, 8083
5060, 6182, 8080, 8083
