Adding the Trunk

Go to “SIP Trunks” and select “Add SIP Trunk”

  • Select Country: US

  • Main trunk number: This will have been provided to you by Wiretap Telecom. You must enter the number in the national number format (e.g. 2101234567)
  • Press OK

Since Wiretap Telecom is an IP based trunk no Authentication ID is and password are required. Press OK to save the trunk configuration.

Adding Additional DIDs

To associate all other DIDs/Numbers you have in your Wiretap Telecom account with 3CX, go to the Management Console → SIP Trunks, double-click on your Wiretap Telecom SIP trunk and go to the “DIDs” tab.

Here you should already see 1 entry; that is the Main Trunk number you have set. Add all other DIDs/Numbers you have to the list in the national number format (e.g. 2101234567) and press OK.

Creating Inbound Rules

Now that you have associated all your DIDs/Numbers with your SIP Trunk in 3CX, you can create Inbound Rules to set where calls will be routed when those numbers are called. Instructions on how to create Inbound Rules can be found here.
