SIP is domain based like HTTP (Web), SMTP (E-Mail) and Jabber (IM/presence).

You need the phones to register with the same domain that
the sofia profile is configured to use.

The most painless way to do this is:

1) setup DNS for A and/or SRV for SIP to point at your box
   eg: sip.my.com
2) set the domain variable in the conf/vars.xml to this domain
   -<X-PRE-PROCESS cmd="set" data="domain=$${local_ip_v4}"/>
   +<X-PRE-PROCESS cmd="set" data="domain=sip.my.com"/>
3) When you configure the phone/soft phone, use sip.my.com
   as the domain you are registering to so for ext 1000
   you become sip:1000 at sip.my.com.

Now you have a fully qualified unique sip url and all your 
phones can chat etc.

      I have traced 
the problem to this point now: the call of switch_core_hash_find() in 
sofia_glue_find_profile__() returns NULL.      

      Finally "Invalid 
Profile <IP of Freeswitch>" is diplayed on the console (among other data 
about the message).

      What is the 
problem here? 



After a small change to 
sofia_presence_chat_send(), sending messages 

The parameter given to sofia_glue_find_profile() was 
the variable host which contains an IP address. I changed it to the 
hardcoded value "default". Now sofia_glue_find_profile() returns a valid profile 
and messages can be sent.


What is the correct way to choose the profile 
name for an IM?
