IAX service

You can make calls to regular phone numbers anywhere in the world as well as internal Voovox.com phone numbers using the IAX2 protocol. You can do this with a softphone, an Asterisk server or any other device which supports the IAX2 protocol.

IAX softphone instructions

Configure your softphone to use the following settings.

 Protocol:    IAX2
 Host:        usgw.ast.voovox.com 
 Username:    Your_AccountID
 Password:    Your_PIN_code
 Audio codec: GSM, iLBC 

Dial a number in international format: country code - area code - phone number. You can call other Voovox.com users by dialing their local Voovox.com number. You can find your local Voovox.com number at "personal #'s" page. To allow other Voovox.com users to call you set Registration ON in your softphone settings.

Asterisk instructions

Configure your Asterisk server to use the following settings.

Add to your iax.conf.

 ; Voovox.com termination
 [voovox]
 type=peer
 username=Your_AccountID
 secret=Your_PIN_code
 disallow=all
 allow=gsm
 allow=ilbc
 ; Use usgw.ast.voovox.com if you want to connect to our USA server.
 host=usgw.ast.voovox.com 

Add to your extensions.conf.

 ; Voovox.com termination
 [voovoxterm]
 exten => _011.,1,Dial(IAX2/voovox/${EXTEN:3})
 exten => _011.,2,Congestion

This will allow you to dial numbers with a prefix of 011. After the prefix dial the country code and then the number you wish to call.
