[pjsip] Interesting question: How to make a message be sent to a specific IP/Port, even if the Request URI has an UNRESOLVABLE domain name?

I think you should not just add a Route header but set a route set for
the dialog calling pjsip_dlg_set_route_set.

When I need to send a request through a proxy, I use code like this:

bool set_proxy(pjsip_dialog *dlg, const char *proxy_uri) {

	pj_status_t status;
	if(!proxy_uri || !proxy_uri[0]) return true; //nothing to do
proxy_uri was not set

	//proxy_uri must contain ";lr".
	char *buf = (char*)pj_pool_zalloc(dlg->pool, 500);


	route = (pjsip_route_hdr*)pjsip_parse_hdr( dlg->pool, &hname,
				 (char*)buf, strlen(buf),
		return false;

	pj_list_push_back(&route_set, route);

	pjsip_dlg_set_route_set(dlg, &route_set);

	return true;
