This wiki explains how to use the FreePBX SIPSTATION Module in conjunction with SIPStation SIP Trunk service. The SIPSTATION Module helps you configure your trunks, routes, and DIDs in just a few clicks. This wiki assumes you have already set up a SIPStation account as described in our wiki "Creating a SIPStation Account."

The SIPSTATION Module, when combined with a SIPStation SIP Trunk account, provides a quick and easy method for getting a SIP Trunk online and ready to go fast. In general, there is not much to adjust here besides pointing your new DIDs or adding an Area Code for 7-digit dialing.

Note that you will see your actual Ip information as the pictures below are just an example.

The Account Settings area shows you your current settings and allows you to make changes in certain areas. If you make any changes, click the "Update Account Info" button at the bottom of this section, followed by the "Apply Config" button at the top of the module.

Route and Trunk Configuration

The Route and Trunk Configuration section shows you which trunk(s) each route is allowed to use, and gives you the opportunity to enable 7-digit dialing. If you make any changes, click the "Update Route/Trunk Configurations" button, followed by the "Apply Config."

DID Configuration 

DID Configuration is found at the bottom of the module. Here you will see a list of your DIDs, a description (if desired), and where the DID is routed to. If a DID is routed to an extension, you can choose whether you would like the extension CID to be set as the DID. You can also set failover numbers for each DID, change the Emergency CID, and see the information for the most recent inbound call. The color of the DIDs relates to their E911 status, which is explained in our "E911 Service" wiki. If you make any changes here, click the "Update DID Configurations" button followed by the "Apply Config" button.
