How to connect Kerio Operator to Skype Connect


This functionality was last redesigned for Kerio Operator 2.4 and newer.


Before starting this procedure, ensure you have:


  1. Log in to the administration interface of your Kerio Operator and go to the Call Routing screen.
  2. Click Add a SIP Interface.
  3. Enter an interface name, choose the New provider option and enter your telephone number. For example, 14085550123.
  4. Click Next.
  5. Choose the extension to receive incoming calls and enter a prefixCountry codes, area codes, a number, or a set of numbers that are dialed before the telephone numbers. that will be used for external calls. For example, 9.
  6. Click Next.
  7. In the Domain (IP address/hostname) field, enter
  8. Enter your SIP User ID in the Username field and enter the Password.
  9. Ensure Required to register is checked.
  10. Click Next.
  11. Verify the information in the Summary section and click Finish.

You should be able to receive calls at your telephone number after finishing these steps. You should also be able to call numbers within the country in which you have chosen your phone number.

However, you have to do a few additional steps to be able to call international numbers.

Skype requires that you send international numbers in the E.164 format with + in front of the country code. In our example, the dial-out prefix is 9 and we will add the prefix 900 for international calls. The approach is as follows:

  1. Go to the Call Routing screen again and click Add in Routing of outgoing calls.
  2. In the Add Outgoing Route dialog, enter 900 as the route prefix and add your Skype Connect interface as created before.
  3. Modify the values for the Called number so that 3 digits are stripped off as we want to remove the prefix 900) and replace is with +.
  4. Click OK to save the route.

Now, as an example, if you want to call a number in the Netherlands, you would dial 90031…and this would get translated this to +31… and will send the call to your Skype Connect interface.
