[asterisk-users] Host = Dynamic in a Register Free Setup

No.      Asterisk will accept calls from unregistered devices, but you have to enable guests I sip.conf and hope your dialplan is secure.  No sane person does this.

Asterisk cannot send calls to a device unless it knows the address from a register or from a host= entry for the peer.

You may not like it, but this is the way Asteirsk has worked for the past 15 years.

Is Asterisk not able to gather IP and port info on INVITES in a REGISTER free, host=dynamic setup? As you all know REGISTERS are resourceful and the phone can be anywhere......

Kind Regards,
