		Prior to using the utility, you have to first 
		set the environment variable <constant>SIP_DOMAIN</constant>
		to locally appropriate value (e.g., "foo.com"). It is
		needed for calculation of user credentials, which depend
		    on SIP digest realm.

	    <title>Web User Provisioning -- <application>serweb</application></title>
	    <para>
		To make provisioning of user accounts convenient, 
		a web front-end to <application>ser</application>,
		<application>serweb</application> has been
		developed. <application>serweb</application>,
		a PHP-written web application,
		allows users to apply for new <application>ser</application>
		accounts, and maintain these.
		Users can manipulate their contacts, keep a phone-book
		with SIP addresses, change password, send instant SIP messages,
		and more. Administrators can manipulate any accounts and
		grant or revoke user privileges.
	    </para>
	    <para>
		<application>serweb</application> is freely
		available from berlios site at
		<ulink url="http://developer.berlios.de/cvs/?group_id=500">
		http://developer.berlios.de/cvs/?group_id=500</ulink>. Installation
		takes unpacking tarball to a safe destination at web server
		(better not in the HTML tree) and configuring 
		<filename>config.php</filename> accordingly
		to local conditions.
	    </para>
	    <para>
		Running <application>serweb</application> can
		be seen at iptel.org's SIP site. Just create and use a SIP
		account at <ulink url="http://www.iptel.org/user/">http://www.iptel.org/user/</ulink>
