I have recently opened a bug report bugs.digium.com/view.php?id=9611 saying that Asterisk chooses way too short timeout for SIP SUBSCRIBE dialog when in LAN environment. I was told there is a config option allowing me to manipulate that parameter. I was trying to argue and was pointed that bug tracking system is not a discussion forum.
I agreee with that but I think it is fair to ask here because it is discussion forum.
So my point it: why making people dig the documentation in search for some rarely used advanced option instead of making things work out of the box? The REGISTER dialog under the same conditions works perfectly because much longer timeout is choosen. IMHO it is pretty easy to do the same with SUBSCRIBE and thus eliminate question “which parameter I have to change to make it work” from ever raising…
