Well, openh323proxy TRIES to look for a remote gatekeeper by looking in
the DNS. I'm not sure if I ever got the DNS format right when I tried
it though, because documentation is practically non-existent. The
readme_dns.txt does not provide enough details. I found a hint of it in
some online Cisco documentation.
I put the following in my zone file:
IN TXT "ras gk.host.name"
simph323 didn't seem to be able to find the gatekeeper from this.
