Statically route your phone number to a host system for inbound calls

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. 

  1. In Flowroute Manage, click Interconnection, and then click Inbound Routes.

    The Inbound Routes page appears. 


    NOTE: You can optionally specify the server's SIP signaling port by delimiting the IP address and the port with a colon (:)—for example,

    • 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. 

  2. In Flowroute Manage, click DIDS in the left nav.

  3. Once you're in the Manage Your DIDs page, select thephone numbers you want to modify with the new static inbound route.
  4. Click Choose a DID Action, and then click Set Route

    The Set Route page appears. 

  5. 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. 

  6. 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.

Failover Routes

If you want to create a host-based failover route, select Set Failover Route when choosing a DID action on the Set Route page.
