Voip and Cloudflare

Cloudflare services are used to increase the security and performance of your website. It does that by basically masking the IP of your DNS to your Web server. If you are using a DNS on the Vodia multi-tenant PBX, then it would not make sense to mask the DNS IP when using Cloudflare. The initial provisioning of the phone is done through HTTP, which will work to get the phone’s config file, however, when the phone is ready for registration, the phone will not be able to register since the DNS IP address is masked, rendering the phone unusable.

Follow these steps to get your phone registered:

Navigate to your Cloudflare user portal, click on your domain, then on DNS.  Check your DNS management and change the proxy to use DNS.

ALL I NEED IS A COMFY CHAIR AND AN OUTLET: REMOTE WORK HAS BECOME “THE NEW NORMAL”

Another factor driving hybrid and remote work is inflation, 9.1 percent in the USA as of July 2022, while many economists are pricing in a recession for the euro zone either later this year or in 2023, with inflation in the zone forecasted at 8.3 percent for this year. With the price of goods and services lofted skyward by inflation, and the average price of a gallon of gas across the USA above $4.00 per gallon, working from home gives Americans the chance to reduce the amount of money they spend on commuting and meals and other incidental costs related to working on-site every day.
