The Federation option allows users of one TrueConf Server unit to make calls to users of other TrueConf Server as well as to TrueConf Online users.

The Federation option is available in any paid TrueConf Server license.

If you have this option turned off in your paid license, call us: 1-347-878-3263, write in online chart or send us an e-mail to: sales@trueconf.ru.

A new Federation tab will be available after activation of this option in TrueConf Web Manager:

Federation Settings

By default, your server can connect to any server in Federation, except the servers from the black list:

Allowed for all but blacklisted servers

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

Let’s consider you are using TrueConf for Windows client application connected to your TrueConf Server instance. Enter the cloud user’s TrueConf ID in the address bar and click the Call button. All TrueConf Online users have @trueconf.com шт in their ID. In our example call will be routed to TrueConf Online user ID otina@trueconf.com, provided that we whitelisted trueconf.com in federation settings or didn’t black-listed it.
