Unable to create channel

Aug 7 21:29:08 NOTICE[77318]: app_dial.c:1040 dial_exec_full: Unable to create channel of type ‘SIP’ (cause 3 - No route to destination)

I revamped my dialplan today. It all seems to work but when I dial to one of the SIP phones I see the message above on the CLI console. Does this mean I have a problem. The calls go through fine.


no route to destination probably means a TCP/IP error, ie youa re trying to open a SIP channel to an ip address that cannot be routed.

The network behind my NATD/Gateway is a class A. The SIP phone is The * server is

These IP’s are of course not routeable over the Internet. I’m not sure I follow why I would get this message. You can’t tell me that there aren’t plenty of class A networks out there.


guessing now- could be that they have host=dynamic and defaultip=(something) set so first it tries the host=dynamic (but no registration exists), then tries the defaultip?

that is strange especially since the call goes through…

could it be trying to dial two sip phones (one of which doesnt work)?

try increasing the debug and verbose output…
