Description:Asterisk should support the ability to register multiple clients for one entity in the sip.conf.


This would enable users to run multiple clients with one asterisk account and get the call werether they are then a call comes in. For example one client running on the desktop the other one on a nootebook. Or one client for monitoring SIMPLE presence (e.g.: MS Messenger) and the other ones for making calls.

Just out of curiosity, this would require Asterisk to become a SIP proxy, would it not?  How else would you pass SIMPLE messages all the way through to the correct client?

Yes, I think it would require to implement "forking proxy" capabilities, the same way it already has some other sip proxy functionalities.

The presence part of simple that was working more or less ... well more less ;) ... is no longer working at all with Windows Messenger 5.

I think that the ability for Asterisk to due "true" SIP proxying is probably not going to happen in the near future (or distant future) unless some superhero steps up to this bugnote.  I am reasonably certain that Mark (or anyone at Digium) does not have time for it.  Please correct me if I'm wrong here...   That being said, it may be good to mark this as "Closed" in a month or so if no champion can be found.

Hmm. Asterisk have a notion of an "extension" which maps to a user. One extension can be mapped to several SIP accounts, so Asterisk supports this solution. Even though on a higher level than SIP. To add this feature on a SIP level as well opens the path to a much more complex configuration...

chriz - I don't think that the multiple registrations to a single "user" will happen without significant re-work of the entire chan_sip architecture.  I could be incorrect.  however, I don't see this ticket as being useful, since it should probably move to a much bigger ticket (as yet unopened) that has as it's title: "Re-Build SIP entirely"

Marking as resolved, even though it's not, really.  Someone can re-open if they think they have the appropriate patches that will pass muster.
