1. Configure your SIP channel

In preparation to create your SIP trunk, you may need to modify two settings, depending on your needs.

  1. From your ScopTEL portal, click on Configuration in the top navigation to open the Telephony Settings: Channels section.

  2. From the Telephony Settings: Channels section, click the Channels tab.

  3. In the Channels section, click on the SIP Channel tab.

  4. We're going to edit some of these settings. Click Edit at the bottom of this page.

  5. In the editor, find the Miscellaneous section and edit the following:

    1. Enable Session Progress and In-Band Audio: This is used for Asterisk Early Audio with SIP channels. Configure as needed.

    2. Enable Premature Media?: Enabling this option will prevent your SIP channel from automatically initiating early media if it receives audio from the incoming channel before there has been a progress indication. Configure as needed.

  6. Click Save.

2. (RECOMMENDED) Configure SIP TLS/SRTP to encrypt call traffic

In this activity, you'll set up encryption for voice traffic over SIP TLS/SRTP.

Note: If you don't want to configure your trunk to use TLS and encrypt call traffic, jump to step 3.

IMPORTANT: In order to complete this step, you'll need to make sure you've activated SIP traffic encryption on your Telnyx Mission Control Portal per your pre-requisite activities.

  1. From your ScopTEL portal, click on Configuration in the top navigation to open the Telephony Settings: Channels section.

  2. From here, click on the SIP Channel tab and provide the following information:

    1. Enable support for SIP TLS (secure)?: Check this box

    2. Don't verify servers certificate when acting as client?: Check this box.

  3. Click Save.

3. Create a new SIP trunk

In this activity, we're going to create your first SIP trunk through ScopTEL.

  1. From your ScopTEL portal, click on Interfaces in the top navigation to open the Interfaces Manager.

    1. Username: Your Telnyx account/sub-account username

    2. Password: Your Telnyx account/sub-account password

    7. Contact Extension: Your Telnyx account/sub-account username

  6. Next, click on the Network tab and provide the following information:

    1. Transport mode: Choose UDP, TCP, or both UNLESS you have created a SIP trunk with TLS. In this case, only check TLS.

    2. Insecure: Check the box next to Invite.

  7. And finally, click on the Options tab and provide the following information:

    1. DTMF Mode: Automatic (Will use RFC 2833)

  1. To create an incoming line, Click Lines in the top-navigation.

  2. In the Lines Manager: Incoming Lines sub-section, click on the Incoming Lines tab.
