Bell Fiber seams to be changing router IP every night...

 

ip_replacement_list get inaccurate every time, do you know any work around on this

 

Can we run a script the can make proper modification automatically every time Internet provider is changing the router IP?

 

many thanks for any directions to be looking at

Unfortunately, the routing list is initialized only during the startup of the PBX... That script would right now have to restart the service.

 

If you use the IP address to register devices from outside, all that registrations will get lost when the service provider changes the IP. That is not very beautiful either. Ongoing calls have the chance to stay up if the handsets are able to change the IP destination when the RTP stream suddenly comes from a different IP, but not all phones do that. Seems like your service provider is suggesting you to run the service in their cloud... Or maybe they just want to promote IPv6 :rolleyes: .

 

Maybe we need to add something that changes the settings on the fly, so when someone enters the IP routing list from the web interface it gets updated immediately. Regardless of this problem, this makes sense anyway.

Many thanks for your post.

 

In this present situation, all devices are registering using hots name that get updated from No-IP.com. I believe that impact may be minimal... I'll try it and see if the concept may work or not...

 

Can you recommend any provider that can run services on their cloud? I am new to cloud computing. Is it possible to host phone services on cloud?

If you want to run the PBX in the cloud yourself, you can just go to a standard hosting provider. If you chose a dedicated appliance, you will get a good performance (jitter). With virutal appliance you have to be careful. I heared that e.g. EC2 from Amazon did a good job, but we did not measure the performance 24/7. We ran our PBX in a hosting center since 2006, our good old pbxnsip was always "in the cloud" (they did not call it that way by then). This makes a lot of sense if your users are spread out, and it also dramatically simplified the NAT setup.
