    I dont have a static ip wan address on my 3cx host pc. Would it be possible to connect to a gateway, authenticating using not an IP address but a dns name.

    I have tried doing this by putting the dns name into the field speciffy IP instead of both/internal/external (stun).

    That did not work.

    Any ideas?

    You can do this in many ways on
    http://www.dyndns.org
    http://www.no-ip.org

    and a more..... just register, choose an avaible submain for you to use, download their program, install on pc and insert you log on details and voila.. you will have something like "Joseph.no-ip.org" or something alike...

    Cheers

    nexVortex can use whatever IP it gets registered to. No need for static unless you want it for other reasons - like an email server.

    I'd be careful with using those services. I tried it a couple years ago and my IP changed so often that it wasn't userful for email.

    I use No-IP and DNSExit, both work great. DNSExit is better if you wish DNS features, as I do.
