What you may need to modify
If you are using the hostnames (montreal.voip.ms or montreal2.voip.ms), there are no interventions required on your part. However, if you have concerns regarding the transition and you want to make sure that there are no issues when the DNS is updated with the new IP address, please reboot your router/device after the IP switch is done. If you are using a Softphone, like Zoiper or X-Lite, a restart of the software may be required.
If you are currently using the IP address of this server directly instead of the hostname to connect to this server (i.e.: 18.104.22.168 instead of montreal.voip.ms), please update with the new IP as the IP switch is completed. The VoIP.ms issue tracker will be updated as soon as the IP switch is finished. (It is not recommended to use an IP Address directly with VoIP.ms)
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause, if you have any questions don't hesitate to contact the VoIP.ms support staff via ticket or live chat.
