Registration and making calls are two different things, you do not necessarily need to be registered to make outgoing calls.

Under "sip-ua", configure username/password/realm, and the router should use them in the authentication phase for each ITSP.

Re: cme 4.0 register with multiple SIP provider

Ok, it seems to me that the current IOS is severely limited in this area:

1st, in "sip-ua" you can configure multiple (up to 5) password/realm combinations, but a single username. That means, if can have different ITSP to assign you the same authentication username, you can use multiple ITSP.

2nd, the authentication configuration in "dial-peer" mode, is available only for pots dial-peer, not voip. This appears like a bug in my opinion, or I would be very curious to know the reason why.

The above is actually documented at:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/software/ios123/123tcr/123tvr/vrht_a1.htm#wp1613546

I've tried the configuration in sip-ua mode, as long the username is the same, you can actually configure multiple password/realm combinations. One final comment, the output from CLI on succesful configuration like Updating password for realm: xxx is really non-standard in IOS.

Hope this helps, if so, rate this post.

No, this limitation is not version dependent. I have a feeling it may be corrected in a future because it so absurd, However I have no basis to support my thinking.

Hope this helps, if so please rate post!

Re: cme 4.0 register with multiple SIP provider

that doesn't look like a bug, but is reasonable:

authentication aids billing and CAC on provider side. If you could use authentication on voip dial-peers then the ip-device in your network using this dial-peer could authenticate itself the same way as a gateway in question. but if it is an analog or tdm device, it cannot do that so we have authentication only under pots dial-peers.
