Creating a SIP Trunk with the IP Trunk Assistant

⚠️ Before creating the trunk, it is necessary to review the configuration of the router, to make sure that these parameters, "SIP ALG" and "SPI Firewall" are disabled.

In order to connect your E-MetroTel UCx PBX system to our service, you will have to create a Trunk. To do so, once you access to your PBX through the IP address, select the PBX tab from the main menu bar at the top and then select the IP Trunk Assistant option from the second menu bar.

From there, you will be able to configure the following options:

User Name: Is your VoIP.ms SIP main account username or your sub-account username.

Secret: Is your password associated for your choosed account.

Outbound Caller ID: You can specify the name and the number that will pass with this trunk for the Outbound calls. Every outbound route will use this Outbound CallerID. (If you leave it blank, the Outbound Caller ID from the "Outbound Route" will be used.

⚠️ ATTENTION that the Outbound CallerID field must be EXACTLY written this way.  "JOHN DOE" <1235551234>   
             (Double Quote CIDNAME double quote SPACE less than sign YOUR10DIGITSNUMBER greater than sign)

The 10 digit valid caller ID number that you will pass with this trunk for Outbound calls.

Host / IP: field at the right side, edit the preselected server and enter your prefered server. (Use one of the multiple VoIP.ms servers), It should be the same, that you selected for your DID

Create an outbound Routes

Once you have created the Trunk and registered your E-MetroTel UCx PBX system to our service, you will have to create the Outbound Routes in order to be able to place calls. To do so, return to the tab PBX Configuration on sub sub-nav bar and select the Outbound Routes option on the menu on the left and then click on Add Route

There, you will be able to configure the following options:

               This Caller ID will override all the caller ID, except:
               *Extension Caller ID (Unless you check the Override Extension when you create the Outbound route).
               *Extension Emergency Caller ID (If the Extension and the Outbound route has the Emergency option enabled).
               *Trunk Caller ID (In case that you have selected the Force Trunk Caller ID option at Caller ID option in the Trunk settings). 

Route Password: In case that you want to ask for a password before the calls connect to the destination.

Route Position: The priority of this route in relation to the other Outbound routes that you have configured.

Dial Patterns: These are a unique set of digits that will activate this Outbound Route and will send the Calls through the Designated Trunk.

In the case of the Dial Patterns the E-MetroTel UCx PBX has an option called Dial patterns wizards this will allow you to add the 
Match Patterns that you will use with this Outbound Route, for this, you just have to select from the drop down menu, the destinations 
that you would like to call with this Outbound route  (Local numbers with 10 or 7 digits, Toll-free numbers, International numbers,
Emergency numbers, Information numbers, etc) and it will automatically add the Match Pattern for those calls.
Additionally we recommend to add a Match Pattern for 4XXX, in order to be able to call to our Echo Test (4443)

These are the basic options that you will have to configure in order to register your device to your PBX System:

User Extension: This is the extension number that you will dial to reach this user via internal extension, also, this is the information that you will use as user name to register your device.

This Caller ID will Override any information set at the caller ID options in the Trunk settings or at the Outbound Route options, 
unless you configure them to force their caller ID instead of using the one in the Extension.

Secret: The password this extension will use. You will have to put this password in the exact same way on your device in order to register it properly to your PBX system.

📝 (The auto-generated default value for secret may sometimes be too long for certain SIP devices. If the device is not able to register using the default value, try using a shorter password. )

⚠️ : If the device is external (not on the same local network), change the field NAT Mode (nat) to Yes.)
