Using Multiple Phones Behind the Same Router:
If there's more than one VoIP phone/device on the same local network, we recommend using different Local UDP Ports for each phone.
For each SIP Phone or device you add, increase the local ports used by 100.
For a Help article about local port numbering, please click here.
In PhonerLite's settings only the Local SIP Port ("Local Port") can be changed. The RTP ports used by PhonerLite will be two ports higher than the chosen Local Port.
PhonerLite's 'Local port' setting is found under the Network tab:
