Description:The attached patch automatically sets externip to the external IP address of the router which asterisk is behind.   It does this by using received= in the Via: header in the response to the REGISTER message.   This means that no configuration is required to use asterisk as a SIP client behind a NAT router.

Even if asterisk is not behind a NAT router this patch should be benign, but it isn't something I am able to test.

I've been running asterisk with this patch for over a year.

Having said that, I've just found a provider that this does not work with so please disregard this patch.
