What you're saying is that "domain" should really be a fully-qualified host
name that points via DNS to the actual host on which FreeSwitch is running.
 That is, the domain should be "pbx.example.com" instead of just "
example.com", as the last example would most likely point to a web server,
not the SIP server.  Do I have that right?

Next, in the configuration for Polycom phones (for example), there are 2
fields that both have the userid.  In the example in
http://wiki.freeswitch.org/wiki/Polycom_configuration it has:



reg.1.address="1000 at fs.domain.local"

How is the "address" value used?  Is that sent in the SIP registration
message?  If that's the case, what does Freeswitch do with it?
