Dial destination is truncated if longer than 80 chars


#1

I have a problem when I try to make a call to a destination string longer than 80 characters; i’m using Asterisk 1.2, Fedora core 3 (but the problem was the same even with *@home 1.0): I show the details in this example:

This first line in extensions.conf works well: when dialing 208 the mediaserver 213.171.105.77 gets the jsp voicexml page from the web server 213.171.104.143 and the customers starts the dialog:
exten => 208,1,Dial(SIP/portal.vxml.http%3A%2F%2F213.171.104.143%2FA%2Fservlet%2Fp.HDesk@213.171.105.77)

The asterisk console gives these lines:
– Executing Dial(“SIP/205-49e2”, “SIP/portal.vxml.http%3A%2F%2F213.171.104.143%2FA%2Fservlet%2Fp.HDesk@213.171.105.77”) in new stack
– Called portal.vxml.http%3A%2F%2F213.171.104.143%2FA%2Fservlet%2Fp.HDesk@213.171.105.77
– SIP/213.171.105.77-03ea is ringing
– SIP/213.171.105.77-03ea answered SIP/205-49e2

This second line, almost identical to the preceeding, but with longer folder, package and servlet names, doesn’t work:
exten => 210,1,Dial(SIP/portal.vxml.http%3A%2F%2F213.171.104.143%2FMsVxml%2Fservlet%2Fmspackage.MsHelpdeskServlet@213.171.105.77)

and the console gives these messages:
– Executing Dial(“SIP/205-59a9”, “SIP/portal.vxml.http%3A%2F%2F213.171.104.143%2FMsVxml%2Fservlet%2Fmspackage.MsHelpdeskServlet@213.171.105.77”) in new stack
Nov 9 15:45:34 WARNING[4004]: chan_sip.c:1947 create_addr: No such host: portal.vxml.http%3A%2F%2F213.171.104.143%2FMsVxml%2Fservlet%2Fmspackage.MsHelpd
Nov 9 15:45:34 NOTICE[4004]: app_dial.c:975 dial_exec_full: Unable to create channel of type ‘SIP’ (cause 3 - No route to destination)

where you can see that the url string is truncated at 80th character.
This problem becomes serious when I have to pass some parameters, as in the following case:

exten => 210,1,Dial(SIP/portal.vxml.http%3A%2F%2F213.171.104.143%2FMsVxml%2Fservlet%2Fmspackage.MsHelpdeskServlet%3Fcaller%3D${CALLERIDNUM}%26callee%3D${DNID}@213.171.105.77)

Here I cannot reduce the total length in 80 chars, and so I have to solve the problem.

Has someone else encountered the same problem? Do you know any solution, please?
Thanks,
Franco.

:blush:
Sorry for the double post, it wasn’t so clear to me what forum could be the right one, for my question.
I hope, however, that almost one of my two msgs will be read (and possibly answered, asap).

Thanks,
F.
