Configuring Asterisk for Skype Connect

Old Italian PhoneThis post is intended to provide some basic guidance in configuring Skype Connect SIP Channels with Asterisk/Freepbx using SIP Trunk.

-- General Settings --
Outbound Caller ID: 99051000xxxxxx <Skype Connect registration ID>
Maximum Channels: 1 <The number of channels you purchased from Skype>

Dialed Number Manipulation Rules
(0039) + <prefix = NULL> | 0Z.
(0039) + <prefix = NULL> | 3Z.

-- Outgoing Settings --

Trunk Name: SkypeConnect <This can be whatever you want>

PEER Details:
username=99051000xxxxxx ; This is your Skype Connect registration ID
secret=xxxxxxxx ; This is your Skype Connect registration password
type=peer
qualify=yes
insecure=invite
host=sip.skype.com
fromdomain=sip.skype.com
disallow=all
allow=alaw&ulaw&g729
fromuser=99051000xxxxxx ; This is your Skype Connect registration ID

-- Registration --
Registration String: 99051000xxxxxx:<password>@sip.skype.com/99051000xxxxxx

Att.: 0039 is the International Dialing Codes for Italy.

Att.: In Italy all landline numbers would begin with a 0 and mobile phone numbers with a 3.

Att.: I have verified that you can receive via call ONLY if you are using  Skype Phone Number. You cannot receive calls directed to skype (business) accounts: this because of a bug with skype vers. >= 6.1 .
