[Kamailio-Users] 404 sparks next gw and 503

This list becomes a mix of high-level tech and low-level beginner
questions... - and I'm in the latter group. Making two lists might be
over-kill, though.

Here's my issue:

My call termination provider is rightfully returning a 404 for a call
to a number that doesn't exist. This currently seems to spark Kamailio
to look for the next gw, but in this case there is no next gw set up
in the lcr/gw - so it returns a 503 to the caller. If I'm confident
that my provider is right that there is no such number, and 404 is the
correct answer, wouldn't it be better to return a 404 to the caller
rather than a 503? With 503 stats also get screwed up, because my
client can just see a bunch of 503s, which is not a very detailed
picture of the real situation.

If I should return a 404, how would I go about this? What would I do
in cfg to ensure that a 404 return does not spark it to look for a
next gw, but sends 404 back to the caller?

Alternatively, I could try to figure out how to get the return from my
provider saved to the acc table on the INVITE record, and I'd have
something more detailed to run stats on. Does that make sense?
