The major point for this box is that all calls come in h323 and leave SIP. So that is the different. Also I have this message a lot:
Unable to handle indication 3 for 'H323/ip$6

maybe the interaction between SIP and H323 needs work

Could you attach debug?

Does this problem happen in 1.4?

What is the scenario in which this happens?

Dear develeoper:
The problem is only one: chan_h323. It is a deffective software, at least in 64 bits. Without it Asterisk is perfect. I had to remove it because every time I typed "core show channels", it locks up and I need to disconnect and reconnect. Furthermore, it must have a memoryleak, for there are two kernel-wide variables variable called numothersock and dgramrcvbuf that keep growing for ever when chan_h323 is used a lot. With SIP-to-SIP none of this happens. It seems to use-up resources but does not release them. It may not be even chan_h323's fault, but the openh323 libraries. I am looking for a replacement for chan_h323 and the libraries. I don't know how to debug it and I cannot certainly risk more downtime. After a few hours Asterisk becomes unresponsive, maybe because the resources have been exhausted. Valgrind cannot be used because it does not understand the multimedia instructions used by the codec translators. I already filed a bug and Julian (the valgrind creator) os looking at it.

Please close the case, unless somebody wants to take control of the box and I can send a few thousand h323 calls and we can get to te bottom of this. I feel, though, that Asterisk does not consider h323 important, but there are hundreds of dialers out there that use H3323, exclusively.
