If you don’t want to use this option, please choose Off in drop-down list and click Apply. If you add servers to your Black list and choose allowed for all but blacklisted servers you will prohibit users of these servers to call and text you. If you add servers to your White list and choose allowed for whitelisted servers only users of the servers from this list will be able to call and text you.
Calling from TrueConf Server to the user of TrueConf Online
