The Dynamic Site Support feature allows telephone users to create their own dynamic site from any location with an IP connection to UniVoIP.  Once you create a dynamic site, you can log into your phone at that site as if you were in the office.
When this feature is enabled, you are presented with an extra web page—My Dynamic Site—on the web interface. By logging into the web interface and selecting this new page, you are presented with the option to create a dynamic site or to release one. This capability requires that you have a specially configured phone provided by UniVoIP.
When you select the button to create a dynamic site, the system automatically detects the router your PC is connected to and then provisions a site using that router address. You then re-boot your phone (disconnect and reconnect the power). It obtains an IP address locally and then registers with the phone service using the newly created dynamic site.
When a dynamic site is released, either automatically (by default one hour after the last phone disconnects) or explicitly through webadmin, the system

  • deletes that site and disables any phones at that site; you are unable to use any phones at that site until you re-create it
  • preserves the currently logged-in user; when a phone reconnects from any site, the account reflects the current reality of the system, that is, whether the user is logged-in or logged-out

For information purposes, the My Dynamic Site page displays the IP address of your computer. It also displays the IP address of the dynamic site (the router address) if you have created one.

Create a Dynamic Site

To create a dynamic site, follow these steps:

  1. Click My Dynamic Site in the left menu.
  2. Click Create Dynamic Site.

The system creates a dynamic site based on the current location of your PC. If you already have a site associated with a different location, it will be released before any new site is created.

Release a Dynamic Site

To release a dynamic site, follow these steps:

  1. Click My Dynamic Site in the left menu.
  2. Click Release Dynamic Site.

The system releases your dynamic site regardless of the site from which you are currently connected. It will also log you out from your phone.

View Dynamic Site Information

To view your current dynamic site information, click My Dynamic Site in the left menu.
At the bottom of the page, you can see a line that specifies the address you are currently connected from, which indicates the IP address of the computer you are currently logged into. This could be at your dynamic site or at a regular static site of your company.
At the bottom of the page, you will also see a line which specifies the dynamic site IP address. This will display the address of your dynamic site (the address of the router to which your PC is connected) or blank if you do not currently have a dynamic site.

Connect your Phone to a Dynamic Site

Follow the normal steps to connect your phone on the network defined as your dynamic site.
If you connect your phone to a network that is not the one defined for your dynamic site, your phone will display "Not a Valid Site".
Once your phone is connected, follow the normal steps to log in.
