Configure Network for Remote Access by a Yeastar FQDN

A Yeastar-supplied Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) frees you from complicated network settings and helps you quickly establish a secure tunnel for remote access. You can create a Yeastar FQDN in the PBX to allow remote access within seconds.

Background information

A Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) is the complete domain name for a specific device on the internet. An FQDN consists of two parts: the hostname and the domain name.

Yeastar-supplied FQDN function has the following advantages and limitations.

Advantages
  • For the network environment that has no static public IP address, a Yeastar-supplied FQDN implements a dynamic DNS service for you.
  • Simplify network configurations for remote access as the complicated Network Address Translation (NAT) configurations and port forwarding are eliminated.
  • Secure remote connections with SSL certificates.
Limitations
Yeastar FQDN is only for Linkus remote access and web remote access.

Prerequisites

You have subscribed Yeastar P-Series Enterprise Plan or Ultimate Plan.

Procedure

  1. Log in to PBX management portal, go to System > Network > Yeastar FQDN.
  2. Turn on Yeastar FQDN.
  3. In the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) field, select a domain name then enter a hostname.

    For example, select domain name ras.yeastar.com and enter hostname yeastardocs, you will get an FQDN yeastardocs.ras.yeastar.com

    Note: Think twice before you enter the hostname. The FQDN cannot be changed after you save the configurations.

  4. Click Save.
