[jitsi-users] Problem with SRV query when Proxy is defined manually


#1

Dear all,

We have established a SIP infrastructure and we are using Jitsi
(1.0-build.3967) as a SIP software client. We have just introduced
functionality of load balancing and proxy fail-over detection using DNS
NAPTR and SRV records. Within our DNS server we defined two proxy servers for
our domain. Also, due to certain reasons, we need to define our Proxy
manually (Jitsi -> Options -> Account (select account) -> Connection - > Proxy
Options - > Proxy) in the form of the domain (for example test.example.com).

In such defined configuration, client Jitsi behaves in the following way:

· When Jitsi makes DNS query toward DNS server he only performs A
query for domain that is manually defined inside Proxy options (for
example, A query for test.example.com), but if Proxy is not manually
defined Jitsi
will first perform NAPTR & SRV query toward DNS server for the domain of
called party.

My questions:

Can I somehow configure Jitsi to send SRV record toward DNS server when I
define Proxy manually (for example, SRV query for test.example.com)?

Thank you in advance.

We have a property that allows doing this for XMPP but we don't
currently have it for SIP. We do however lookup NAPTR and SRV records
for the domain name.

Can you please tell us a bit more about how you can not use this?
