Yes, since it's in my understanding that registrar should never ever
modify the Contact header according to RFC 3261, regardless on how it
thinks it may help with NAT. Unfortunately many registrars out there
violate this, either misconfigured (with (Open)SER case) or just plain

This is just the effect seen by application. The main work itself is
done in pjsip/src/pjsip/sip_reg.c (see line 739 which looks for the
matching Contact header).

It's for the reasons above. I would say it'll be better to fix your
server config though (e.g. use fix_nated_register() rather than

PJSUA-LIB is the high level API, and low level parsing is done in the
PJSIP library level.
