  1. Even though I am entering the correct Salesforce Login Username and Salesforce Login Password, I am getting an error to “Enter Correct Username and Password”.

You might have entered incorrect Salesforce Consumer Key or Salesforce Consumer Secret or Salesforce Login Token.

To check if you have entered the correct Salesforce Consumer Secret and Salesforce Consumer Key, go to the drive where you have installed the Yealink App YourDrive/FolderOftheApp and open YealinkSFDCDialerConfig.xml file using Notepad++ software. In the tag <sfdc> check for the values of sfdcConsumerKey and sfdcConsumerSecret which are the values of Salesforce Consumer Key and Salesforce Consumer Secret respectively you entered during setup. Compare those with values in Salesforce Connected App and change the values if they are incorrect and Save it.=

If Salesforce Consumer Key and Salesforce Consumer Secret are correct and still facing the same issue, now check for Salesforce Login Token which you can see in a different file. Go to C:\Users\USERNAME and open YealinkSFDCDialerUserConfig.xml file using Notepad++ software. In the tag <login> check for the value of sfdc_token which is the value of Salesforce Login Token you entered during setup. Compare the value with the Salesforce Token value you received in your Email after creating the Connected App in Salesforce and change the value if it is incorrect and Save it.

If all the 3 values along with Salesforce Login Username and Salesforce Login Password are correct, you will be able to login successfully.
