The following article describes statically routing your phone number to a host system for inbound calls.
NOTE: This setup is only for systems on a static external IP or a Dynamic DNS style hostname.
- In Flowroute Manage, click Interconnection, and then click Inbound Routes.
The Inbound Routes page appears.
NOTE: You can optionally specific the server's SIP signaling port by delimiting the IP address and the port with a colon (:)—for example, 18.104.22.1681:5060.
In the Enter Route field, add a route with either a static external IP address or hostname.
From the drop-down list box, select Host.
Click Add Route.
The new inbound route is added.
In Flowroute Manage, click the DIDS menu.
The Manage your DIDs page appears.
- Select the telephone numbers you want to modify with the new static inbound route.
Click Choose a DID Action, and then click Set Route.
The Set Route page appears.
- From the Search for a route drop-down list box, select the newly added inbound route, and then click Set Route.
NOTE: The static route is applied to all of the telephone numbers you selected. If you have configured the routes correctly, your account will no longer require SIP Registration.
- To verify that the routes were configured correctly, click Interconnection on the menu bar, and then on the Status & Setup page, click Reset Password under SIP Credentials. Do not copy this new password, as these credentials will no longer be needed.
If you want to create a host-based failover route, select Set Failover Route when choosing a DID action on the Set Route page.
