Firewall Testing

You cannot use the wizard’s Test Firewall tab when when you select any of these other connection methods.  If you are having firewall issues, this article Firewall Configuration for SIP Trunking might help.

Test Your Connection

The fastest way to test your new connection settings is to run our Sample App.  You can find this in the wizard under the Finishing tab, or in the Voice Elements Dashboard under Tools.  Or you can run your application to test your new connection setup.
