Description:asterisk drops calls after 20 minutes or so...
the call quality is good but after 20 - 30 minutes, the connection simply goes dead.  This problem has happened consistently on long calls


I am running asterisk on an AMD 4800+ w/ 2G RAM, linux 2.6.19 SMP PREEMPT i386  I have been running asterisk from the console "-vvvvvvc" to try to catch any errors, however the only message that I see is:

chan_sip.c:5361 set_destination:can't find address for host '201' at around the time of the call being dropped.  The sip configuration is set to dynamic and the defaultip is set to which is also the actual ip of the phone (using dhcp to assign that address based on the phones MAC).

I am able to immediately dial out after the call is dropped and I can also immediately accept incoming calls as well.

The system is using 2 incoming telephone lines, a Digium tdm13b with zap/1 goinf to the fax machine, zap/2,3 as the incoming lines and zap/4 unused.

As per bug guidelines, you need to attach a SIP debug trace illustrating the problem. Please do the following:
1) Prepare test environment (reduce the amount of unrelated traffic on the server);
2) Make sure your logger.conf has the following line:
  console => notice,warning,error,debug
3) restart Asterisk with the following command:
  'asterisk -Tvvvvvdddddgc | tee /tmp/verbosedebug.txt'
4) Enable SIP transaction logging with the following CLI commands:
set debug 4
set verbose 4
sip debug
5) Trim startup information and attach verbosedebug.txt to the issue.

Thank you .  Yes, I am rinning asterisk with debugging.  I will submit the results on the next dropped call.
