    Hi,
    Since V5 beta2 and RC2 it is impossible for company that have a domain name including the "-" char to install the VPN using it.

    By example domain name: my-domain.net need to be mydomain.net

    thx

    Its best not to use the -, it wont effect functionality.

    It'll greatly affect functionality if you own a hyphenated domain name and you can't send email to it as a result.

    Not using it is NOT a workaround.

    Well, I have a significant percentage of my customer-base using hyphenated domain names, as the hyphen character is a valid domain character as defined by RFC1123.

    If 3CX want to sell a phone system into any of these potential customers, they'll have to support RFC1123 for domain names. That's as simple as it gets!!

    I am shure they do - they have done a good job in the past and they will do in the future.

    I only post this as a notice because there is no bugtracking system where i can see if a bug is postet -> accepted -> in work -> solved

    perhaps we can help to setup such a list.

    what such a list need is not much:

    a good title (editable by admin)
    a clear description (editable by admin / users can prolongate (add) somethin but can not delete (that can only do admin)

    a status (doublepost|accepted|in work|solved (editable by admin)

    a priority (possible voteable my customers until admin fix it)

    That would be a godsend here - to avoid the same question being asked multiple times.

    Admins - are you listening??

    How would the name in the VPN certificate, used only for connecting bridges between 3CX Phone Systems affect your email functionality????

    2 separate issues. One is the acceptance or otherwise of the hyphen into a certificate for VPN, the second is the acceptance or otherwise of the hyphen into a domain name for email. They are only interrelated by their non-acceptance of the hyphen.

    Hi Michael,

    The email is only used to create the VPN certificate and it does not at all effect email at all.

    OK sorry for getting on my high horse (if this works).

    How about the fault-tracking issue he highlights though?? that'd save a world of pain for us all IMHO :)
