SIP Register interval problem

Hi,

I have Cisco 2921 ISR (c2900-universalk9-mz.SPA.154-2.T1.bin) and Grandstream voice gateway registered to the same ITSP. 

ITSP's SIP register interval is 300 seconds. Grandstream registers every 300 seconds (no problem),  ISR - 480 seconds so

some incoming calls are not working. 

 Where does ISR take 480 sec value and how to change it? 

 

sip
  min-se 180 session-expires 240

 

sip-ua
 credentials username a password 7 a realm sip.k
 authentication username a password 7 a
 no remote-party-id
 max-forwards 10
 retry invite 3
 retry response 3
 retry bye 3
 retry cancel 3
 timers trying 100
 registrar dns:sip.k:5060 expires 1800 auth-realm sip.k
 sip-server dns:sip.k
 no suspend-resume

Sorry for late reply. When

Sorry for late reply. When you run sh sip-ua register status command between 300 to 480 second , did you see the registration status dropped in between that time ? And can you make an outbound call in between that time ?

See inbound is always been routed by Telco and if our ITSP pointing IP is reachable then that's their headache to route inbound call.

Do you have proper interface binding in place ? Can you share voice relevant config from your router ?

On expire timer value the

On expire timer value the final call always from the registrar server , so in this case ITSP registrar send 600 sec as an expire time and that is maximum time to expire but cisco set threshold time as 480 sec so that it wont hit the maximum time before re-registration is done. So after 480 second it start sending re-registration message.

I cant see any interface binding in your config , please check this link do the necessary configuration.

 

Lets do not assume anything , get in a call with ITSP and asked them what they see in their system about your account status  when registration timer hit 480 seconds and also when you do an inbound call after 480 second , how they transport that call , do they get some sip 4XX error or what ?

 

I am sure this is something to do with telco , so you need to press them hard and asked to share logs if they feel its an issue with us.

Are you sure that register

Are you sure that register time interval is causing the inbound call to fail ?

SIP register message and call setup (INVITE) message are sent separately and there is no relation between them but yes in some cases when user agent remain unregistered (due to lack of response from ITSP) and call came in at the same time then you have an inbound call failure . In that case you need to point at ITSP 

Can you share debug ccsip message for a failing inbound call ?

Hi Manish,When call fails

Hi Manish,

When call fails there is not any traffic from ITSP at all so debug ccsip messages shows nothing.

As far as I understand SIP registrar "forgets" about ISR SIP account after some time if there is no Register message so it does not know where to send Invite message. If incoming call is for example  at 400 second it fails, if it is in first 10 seconds after Register message, call is successful.

ITSP denies any problems because Grandstream is working, and the difference between Grandstream and ISR is that GS registers every 5 min, ISR - every 8 min.

 

 

That means there is timeout

That means there is timeout setup at ITSP registrar , can you lower sip-ua registrar server expire seconds to 300.

 registrar dns:sip.k:5060


 registrar dns:sip.k:5060 expires 300 auth-realm sip.k

What I see in Wireshark:

ISR sends Expires 300 in Message header of Register message

ITSP sends Contact Parameter : expires = 600\r\n in 200 OK message.

 

 

 

 

Did you mean when ITSP send

Did you mean when ITSP send OK message for REGISTER it send expire header value as 600 sec?

Do you see within 5 mins the ISR router send REGISTER message again ?

New Member

Yes, in reply OK message

Yes, in reply OK message expire value is 600.

No, ISR sends Register messages every 8 min. Checked it with Wireshark. 

Does the ITSP send same value

Does the ITSP send same value in OK expire header for other ISR router and Grandstream router ?

New Member

Yes, Grandstream sends

Yes, Grandstream sends Expires 3600, gets Contact parameter: expires 600.

But registration is every 5 min.

Grandstream config:

Register Expiration 60 min.

SIP port 5062

Session expiration 180 seconds.

5 min is not configured anywhere.

sh sip-ua register status

sh sip-ua register status always shows reg status "yes" and there is no problem with outbound calls anytime.

I think there is a problem with ITSP too. What I don't get is where does cisco take 480 sec value, it is not configured anywhere, ITSP does not send it. And if

there is a way to force register.

It seems it is a weird L2

It seems it is a weird L2 problem. ITSP was sending Invite messages but ISR

is not getting them. Before ISR was connected over HP switch to ITSP CPE.

Now it is connected directly to CPE and for 2 days problem did not repeat.

It will take some troubleshooting to say exactly if switch was blocking.

 

Thank you for your help and time.

Checked another ISR (c2951

Checked another ISR (c2951-universalk9-mz.SPA.152-3.T2.bin) that is working fine for a long time connected to the same ITSP, it registers every 120 sec.
