Andy, no. No one has suggested using the lcr module, and I wasn't even aware of it until you mentioned it just now. I took a look at the module docs, they're way beyond my current understanding. it. I'll have to do some reading. Does it allow you to try another route when one is not responding?

The bottom line seems to be that it doesn't matter whether you use the dispatcher or SRV records to distribute load, OpenSER will never try to connect to anything else on failure and at least for us, that makes it use in a production system, not an option.

	very well for me.
