I wanted to use Jitsi for SIP calling via sipgate.de. Unfortunately I
get an error "Message too big" when I try to call my friend. This
happens straight after I try to establish the call.
This response gets returned from the server so apparently, for some
reason, the sipgate servers are configured not to accept messages a
above a certain length. I am not sure what the reason for this is or why
that limit is so short. What you can do however is to try and disable
codecs that you think you won't be using. Disabling H.264 and H.263
would have a strong impact on INVITE size.
Strangely, he can call me without any problems.
In that case INVITEs would have been generated by his client and they
may well be shorter than Jitsi's (we advertise a lot of stuff in ours
and it will only get worse when we add ICE).
Also, I can call the
sipgate echo test number email@example.com just fine.
This is strange indeed but only sipgate would be able to explain.
he's shown offline all the time although he insists he's online (even
while we're talking,
Your Jitsi instance seems to be sending a number of SUBSCRIBEs and never
gets an answer from sipgate. This would explain why presence won't work.
and I can see his online status on other softphones).
Well if sipgate answer SUBSCRIBEs from other phones then there must be
something in ours that they don't like. Unfortunately here too, only
they can provide an explanation.
I attached the logs. Does anyone know why this happens and how I
might get it to work?
Thanks a lot, and by the way: I've only used Jitsi for a couple of
days but I love it! Thanks for your work!
Thank you for your kind words!
