In these cases you just enter the domain in the registrar.  Polycom  
has two settings for this ... one under network and one under SIP lines.

Is this the ip for the profile?  You can use <param name="force- 
register-domain" value="mydomain.com"/> on the profile to force  
everything to the domain on the backend.

SIP is just like email you don't use IP's in email addresses these  
days.  And you should never do so in SIP addresses either.  Asterisk  
doesn't do this via names because they don't want the extra hit of DNS  
lookups but that is how SIP was designed.  user at domain.com and not user at

You should always use domains and not IP's as that allows you to use  
SRV records and failover registrars and such.
