Ekiga doesn't auto-reconnect after registration timeout
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:05 EST
Description of problem:
If the SIP registration attempt times out, Ekiga doesn't retry the registration.
This means you have to manually go to the accounts dialog and untick and then
tick the account to get it to retry the registration.
I notice this problem when resuming my computer after it has been suspended for
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up Ekiga to register with a SIP server
2. Suspend computer for an hour or so
3. Wake computer up again
Ekiga will sit there saying "Registration Timeout" on the status bar forever.
Ekiga should try to register again after a sensible amount of time (maybe this
should be configurable?)
Okay, this is a known problem in Opal actually, and this will hopefully
be fixed in Ekiga 3.0 but not before. That's part of the TODO for the
next release. Best is to follow this upstream. I can't just fix it in
Fedora, this is an enhancement upstream, known there, so the best is to
close it with WONTFIX here, but I checked fist with Damien the project
lead that this was a known enhancement and was looked at upstream.
