[SR-Users] Kamailio 4.4 + rtpproxy behind the NAT (debian stretch 9.13)

Hello Youssef,

before investing a lot of time into this old version, I would suggest that you update:

  *   operating system (e.g. at least to Debian Buster)
  *   Kamailio (at least 5.4.x)
  *   And also rtpproxy, consider also rtpengine which is much more flexible especially for NAT scenarios

In the newer kamailio default cfg you find also support for rtpengine, it can be easily enabled with a define.

I am testing the kakamilio 4.4 with rtpproxy on Debian stretch 9.13
I have installed the packages
·         apt-get install kamailio and rtpproxy.
·         kamailio 4.4
·         rtpproxy Basic version: 20040107

My version of RTPPROXY doesn't have the -A parameter so that means without advertising there is no way to work behind NAT? That is what I have understood after spending one week on forums. Thanks if somebody could confirm otherwise, which way I need to go to figure out my issue?

# rtpproxy -v
Basic version: 20040107
Extension 20050322: Support for multiple RTP streams and MOH
Extension 20060704: Support for extra parameter in the V command
Extension 20071116: Support for RTP re-packetization
Extension 20071218: Support for forking (copying) RTP stream
Extension 20080403: Support for RTP statistics querying
Extension 20081102: Support for setting codecs in the update/lookup command
Extension 20081224: Support for session timeout notifications

# rtpproxy -help
rtpproxy: invalid option -- 'h'

#Defaults for rtpproxy
#The control socket.
#To listen on an UDP socket, uncomment this line:
#Additional options that are passed to the daemon.
EXTRA_OPTS="-l $PRIVATE_IP/$PUBLIC_IP ="-s $PRIVATE_IP:7222 -m $rtpport_min -M $rtpport_max -d $syslog"`

Thanks if you could route me to the right way.
