Asterisk "loosing" registration with the SIP provider

Postby dejanst » Sun Oct 09, 2011 3:50 am

I am having a problem with Asterisk SIP registration with the SIP provider. The SIP provider is offering a SIP trunk to the Asterisk via the internet connection (NAT router is in the LAN -> WAN path). The unique thing with the Asterisk server internet connection is, that it is very unstable, so the SIP Trunk is unavailable a lot of times.

When the problem happens, first the Asterisk sends a SIP Register request with the wrong password, after that it is sending a SIP Register requests with the wrong username ("asterisk" or a number from the DID range that is provided by the SIP Trunk) and the SIP provider rejects the SIP Registration. Asterisk tries this a couple more times and the SIP provider is rejecting the SIP registration for the SIP Trunk. At the end Asterisk stops sending SIP Register messages alltogether. I can see this if you check the SIP Register status with "sip show registry". After I do a "sip reload", the SIP Trunk re-registers successfully.

This is an extract from the log:

These are the trunk settings in the sip.conf:
Code: Select all
register => 123456780:secret@sbc.amis.net/123456780

[Provider_Trunk]
type=peer
host=sbc.amis.net
username=123456780
secret=secret
fromdomain=sbc.amis.net
insecure=invite
port=5060
canreinvite=no
qualify=yes
dtmfmode=inband
disallow=all
allow=alaw
allow=ulaw
context=from_trunk
nat=yes


This problem does not happen when the network connectivity is OK. It also does not happen every time the internet connection is down. But I am still curious if someone has any idea if this can be fixed by adding any new settings to sip.conf. The Asterisk version used is 1.8.5.0.
