Add DIDs in the 3CX 14 Telephone System

The following article describes adding DIDs for the 3CX Phone System Version 14 Service Pack 2.

Before you begin
  • To receive inbound calls to your DIDs in 3CX, you will first need to have Flowroute set up as a VoIP Provider as described here. Failure to follow these prerequisite steps will cause your 3CX system to reject any inbound calls with a 407 SIP error. 

To add DIDs:
  1. Open the 3CX Management Console.  

  2. In the left-hand pane of the 3CX Management Console, click Inbound Rules , and then click Add DID:  

  3. On the Add DID page: 

    • In the Inbound rule name field, enter the full 11-digit DID including the 1 prepended with an asterisk (*). For example, *12065551000

    • In the Number/Mask section, from the Inbound Rule type drop-down list box, select DID/DDI number/mask, and then in the DID/DDI number/mask field, enter the number set for the Inbound rule name from the first step. 

    • For Available ports, ensure that the Flowroute Test check box is selected.
