Perfectly right. You guessed that from those missing TRYINGs, I
presume ;)

Anyway, here a short update for you, in case you're interested:


The issue apparently is caused by siproxd failing to resolve the
internal router name. Don't know why. I'm in contact with the
siproxd developer, by private mail exchange and here in public:

All other apps (ping etc.) do resolve the name. I wrote a short
program employing gethostbyname() myself, and it also succeeds when
run on the router. I'm very curious to hear why siproxd doesn't.


In a previous mail, I asked whether all requests (REGISTER, SUBSCRIBE,
INVITE etc.) should directly be sent to the proxy. This really was a
question, because I don't know but did observe that Ekiga circumvents
the proxy e.g. when contacting the registrar, which I suspected might
be a potential cause of trouble.

I know think this might be the right behavior though, but aren't
sufficiently into SIP to really claim this right now. You will
likely know this.


I didn't test the new snapshot package yet, cause I'd really like
to wait for deb packages, which apparently aren't up yet. I'll
give feedback as soon as possible though.

So if it finally comes out as it now looks like, Ekiga was not to
blame but I rather troubled you for a siproxd error I failed to
properly recognize. Sorry for that. You definitively helped me
narrowing it down though, so I hope my appreciation is a slight
compensation for the work I've been causing you ...

Kind regards, Bruno.
