1) How do I setup my SIP trunk for inbound/outbound calling? We authenticate IP-PBX SIP Trunking traffic by: IP Authentication (IP address) or Digest Authentication (service account and PIN) After you decide which switch platform to use, you will need to establish a SIP trunk with our proxy server (sipusa.switch2voip.us port 5060) and send us your IP to input your IP address into our portal or register your switch with us.
IP Authentication (IP Address) The IP Authentication method should be used when you have a static IP-PBX IP Address. IP Authentication provides enhanced security since your SIP trunk can only be used from the IP Address you provide.
On open source applications (such as Asterisk), you can setup your SIP trunk with IP Authentication as follows:
If we are using username/password authentication with our provider then we need to set our trunk up manually in Asterisk. We will give that trunk a name and then use that name, instead of the IP address, in the A2Billing trunk setup screen above.
Here’s an example of setting up a trunk with Switch2VoIP. Many providers will be similar and provide the connection details you need to enter. These settings go in the file /etc/asterisk/sip.conf.
If you need to ‘register’ with your termination provider enter the register line under the existing [general] section –
