By using split-horizon DNS, you can resolve the same FQDN differently for clients inside and outside the organization.

Polycom recommends configuring the following FQDNs as split-horizon DNS records on internal and public DNS server.

FQDN Resolve From Internal Network Resolve From Public Network Description
rprm.mycompany.com 192.0.2.2 1.2.3.4 For internal and external endpoint provisioning
dmaedge.mycompany.com 192.0.2.7 1.2.3.4 For internal and external web client joining the conference
dmaedge.mycompany.com 172.16.0.6 1.2.3.4 For internal and external WebRTC client joining the conference
