If after following these steps you wish to view the credentials required to copy and paste into Callroute, browse to Calling then select Trunk (see step 2).

Then click on the trunk you wish to obtain the credentials for. On the right-hand side click Manage – this is next to Trunk Info. The credentials are then displayed.

You are also able to see the status of the service to confirm if this is online or offline.

Please note, the username and password are not displayed. If you do not have a note of the Username and Password you will need to use the Retrieve Username and Reset Password link.

Please be aware that this will reset the credentials and will effect any live service operation
