Hello guys,

Please help me to solve this problem. When this log is start apearing my SIP phones are not able to register.

I will appriciate for your replies.

what version of asterisk are you running?
what phone are you using?


I am using Asterisk SVN-branch-1.2-r7231 with MySQL Realtime. and the SIP Phone is LinkSys,SIP Express,Quintum etc…

I suggest trying asterisk v1.2.1 or 1.2.2 to make sure you’re using a stable branch and see if it works then. If it doesn’t, do a sip show settings in the cli and post your output here.
