SIP and end-to-end

Discussion in 'VOIP' started by Georg Schwarz, Oct 16, 2005.

  1. Common wisdom says that for a SIP-based telephony session the media
    stream is directly end to end.
    However, for both FWD and sipgate.de I figured that the media stream
    goes via the respective provider. I would assume the sip proxy to
    manipulate the Invite messages accordingly.
    Is this being done to better cope with NAT devices and firewalls?

  2. Hello,
    Exactly. For instance see PortaSIP User Guide, "NAT traversal" chapter for
    more details.

    With best regards,
