SIP Proxy Configuration Options

Configuration of SIP proxies. This section must exist within the [sip] section and contains a variety of parameters to configure your proxy. If a specified proxy fails, BVR will start using the next proxy in its associated group (if multiple proxies are specified in that group). Once all proxy definitions have failed BVR will return to the beginning of the list. Note that BVR will only support proxies using loose routing.

Each proxy can be assigned to one or more "proxy groups", which is a collection of proxies referenced by the proxy group's name. BVR features that use SIP can be configured to use a group of proxies by specifying the group name in their respective configuration sections. As an example, if some proxies are assigned to a group called "outbound_call_proxy_group" and outbound calls are configured to use the proxy group of the same name, outbound calls will use the proxies associated with that group.

This section is OPTIONAL; MANDATORY parameters only need to be specified if this section exists

The header for this section is [[sip.proxy]]

Table 1. sip.proxy
Name Mandatory Type Default Description
address yes string N/A The address of the SIP proxy. It can be either an IP address or a hostname.
port no integer 5060 Specifies the port used (only applies to mode "direct")

Min: 1, Max: 65535
transport no string UDP Specifies the transport for the SIP proxy. Can be TCP or UDP.

Valid options are: TCP, UDP
extra_parms no string   Adds extra parameters to the Route URI
try_anonymous no boolean false Requests to the proxy may receive an authentication challenge based on how the proxy is set up. If this parameter is set and BVR have no proxy credentials matching the realm on the challenge, BVR will try to use anonymous credentials.
mode no string DIRECT "direct" or "dns_srv". If direct then BVR will use the specified address directly. If dns_srv, BVR will look up the SRV record for the specified address using your system's default DNS server and pick a proxy from the results (see RFC2782 for more details on how SRV records are picked).

Valid options are: DIRECT, DNS_SRV
proxy_groups no string array ["outbound_call_proxy_group"] This parameter was introduced in version 7.9.1

Assigns this proxy to 1 or more proxy groups.

Note: This variable is an array of strings. Each item should be individually quoted and comma separated, with the entire variable surrounded by [] brackets. e.g. ["a", "b", "c"]
