The link to here uses PAGENAME, not FULLPAGENAME, so I've masked the "Transwiki:" portion.
RFC 3251 is about telephone-over-ip "Session Initiation Protocol". Their definition is:

Address-of-Record: An address-of-record (AOR) is a SIP or SIPS URI that points to a domain with a location service that can map the URI to another URI where the user might be available. Typically, the location service is populated through registrations. An AOR is frequently thought of as the "public address" of the user.

and although similar to the definition given in the transwiki, doesn't convey that that it is the reported address you'd connect to, to establish connection with someone over a bridge or through a NAT firewall, etc. --Connel MacKenzie 04:14, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
