In this post we’ll learn how to install Cisco IP Communicator (CIPC) inside a virtual machine. The virtualization software we will use is Oracle VM VirtualBox.

There are two steps:

  • copy CIPC installation files from the host machine to the guest virtual machine,
  • install the CIPC software.

Copying installation files to the virtual machine

The Cisco IP Communicator software that I have on my host machine is a Zip file. I only need to transfer it from my host machine to the virtual machine. For this, we’ll need to build a shared folder between the host machine and VirtualBox.

Installing Cisco IP Communicator

The installation is not difficult. You extract the Zip file and follow the steps.
