Re: [Ekiga-list] registration failure

It might appear that I've been seeing a similar issue for some weeks
now, several qualifying differences:

#1 I am not using ekiga client

#2 I have used 2 different routers, switching routers does not help,
both have what I'd call fairly reliable SIP ALGs.

#3 the problem seems to come and go, without my intervention -sometimes
lasting an hour or more, and then not happing for hours.

#4 during the failure, the response does indeed come, but my sniffer is
behind the FW, thus - shows the internal IPs, and not the original
packet received by the FW public interface

#5 icmp echos to show no basic connectivity issues during the
failure. I have not yet tried traceroute to see if the frames take
different paths - perhaps through some device that may be causing the issue.

I'm going to try to get time to rig up a sniffer on the public
interface, and get good/bad comparisons, but would appear to be a server
issue *if* these are all the same issue, not sure i can manage this
anytime soon.

Best regards,
