New to voip and have a question about self hosted freepbx


I just setup a freepbx server on and am able to login.
Now if setup a sip account on say flowroute, is all I have to do is add the correct account info and sip info then add a phone to the freepbx and I should be able to make and receive calls? I have a poe switch that I will use to connect the phone to switch and switch to router.
Am I missing anything?


Seems a good starter plan. Enjoy.

Interface through Flowroute will be through a Trunk and then through incoming and Outgoing routes. You’ll set up your phones through Extensions.

Thanks for the info.

What are some other good sip providers other then flowroute that are recommended?

VOIP Innovations
Alcazar Networks

and of course
