Description:Situation: phone1 - *a - *b - provider - phone2

When making a call from phone2 to phone1, both *b and provider use re-invites to get out of the RTP stream. After phone1 hangs up, *b tries to send BYE directly to the RTP server of the provider instead of its SIP peer. The result is that phone2 does not see that the call has ended.


*a: asterisk on slackware 10.1
*b: asterisk on slackware 10.2

The problem is reproducible always, but it only happens when phone2 makes a call to phone1, it does not happen when phone1 makes a call to phone2. Attached are the sip config file of *b and a SIP trace of a call, also from *b.

According to our provider this problem was caused by ASTERISK-11033 . I tried both 1.4.16 with that particular patch and and the problem happens with both, so it might be related, but if it is, it's not solved.

Please let me know if I need to provide additional details, traces or logs, or if you want shell access on any of the * boxen.

This might be similar to what has been reported in ASTERISK-6082 .

I've uploaded the patch that oej wrote (in bug ASTERISK-6082 ), manually applied to 1.4.19. Original patch was taken from

No luck, even with the patch the problem persists.
Right now I have a dedicated test setup available for anyone interested in assisting debugging this thing.

I've added a debug listing of a single call where the problem happens. This listing is made on the *b box (see bug Description).

At the end of the listing you can see that the BYE is sent to the wrong host.

I'm getting somewhere. The patch of # 11545 ensures that handle_response_invite() does not call build_route() in case of a reinvite. However, pouring over debug traces shows that after the hangup, we send a reinvite, we receive a 200 OK, but when we send the ACK to that sequence, for some reason we're back to a 'standard' invite (which causes build_route to be called, which causes the bug).

When doing reinvites, after a hangeup, we get the following exchange:
INVITE ---->
<-------- OK
ACK ------->
However, after the INVITE, sip_hangup() is called, which sets the call owner to NULL, causing the test for reinvite in handle_response_invite() to incorrectly state it is not a reinvite.

To ensure the ACK is sent correctly, we have to avoid calling build_route(). The attached patch fixes this just before calling build_route() from handle_response_invite() [but I don't know if there are other situations which would by caught by this test, so this might not be a good way]. Perhaps it is better to improve the test for reinvite so it works even after sip_hangup() is called.

chan_sip.c_12322_reinvite_after_hangup.patch solved the problem, but broke calls in some cases.

chan_sip.c_12322_reinvite_after_hangup_2.patch was one of my test patches which can be removed. Please ignore it.

chan_sip.c_12322_reinvite_after_hangup_3.patch uses a dedicated variable to indicate the call is a reinvite being hung up. This fixes the problem in a much better way, without breaking any calls (AFAIK).

I need a full debug with verbose and everything you get at the console. I don't see the issue here as I don't get all information. Please upload the output of all logging channels, not only the debug channel, and from the start of the call to the failed bye. Thank you.

Ping on this? oej has requested some additional information which will be required to move this bug forward. Thanks!
