Connect to your SIP based PBX or Gateway


The Voice Elements Dashboard has several SIP and PBX connection options to choose from.  In this article, we cover how to connect to your SIP based PBX or Gateway


Run the Setup Wizard

Open the Voice Elements Dashboard.  Click Tools and select Launch Wizard.


Select the Connectivity tab.

Select the option Other for Carrier/Gateway/Device.  Several location options will open up.

Firewall Testing

You cannot use the wizard’s Test Firewall tab when you select any of these other connection methods.  If you are having firewall issues, this article Firewall Configuration for SIP Trunking might help.

Test Your Connection

The fastest way to test your new connection settings is to run our Sample App.  You can find this in the wizard under the Finishing tab, or in the Voice Elements Dashboard under Tools.  Or you can run your own application to test your new connection setup.
