m (Voipfone softphone np longer works)

*You do need to use the hostname ''aa.org.uk'' as we use SRV records to direct the call, so using an IP address is not supported.
*The CLI is not trusted for such calls, so are sent to your SIP handset with a ? on the front of the number (which may confuse some caller ID display units), and not passed on if the call is diverted.
*So, for example, without any configuration or account details a softphone may call your A&A provided VoIP number, as shown in the image here.
*As mentioned, this does require the client (the phone you're calling from) to support SRV records.
