I appreciate all the hard work yourself, Brian, Mike and all the other
developers have put in FS! By no means am I discounting any of it,
it's truly invaluable.
Our "philosophy" has always been to use DNS where available, so that
we're not worrying about re-configuring a bunch of devices if IP
addresses change and this obviously goes to setting the phones up as
well to use DNS for the proxy and registrar fields. And it allows us
to do fancy things, like split-view DNS, where if a phone is taken
off-site and we want it to remotely register to FS, it will get the
public IP address of the FS server, rather than the private, without
re-configuring the phone.
If I'm understanding your email correctly, you're saying we need to
use all IP or all DNS for SLA, is that correct? AFAIK, we're using all
DNS, but perhaps I'm missing something somewhere. How would we be able
to use the DNS name of our SIP domain in phones (rather than IP) and
ensure SLA works for both incoming/outgoing calls? Is that possible at
this point in time or do we need to use the IP addresses in the proxy
field on the phone if we want to use SLA?
Thanks for all your help.
