It is only in the last few days that this discussion occurred.  This is
not the first mention of problems with using pjsip on dynamic ips.

Most affected users are probably still using chan_sip.  Or haven't even
upgraded to 13 yet.

I gave up switching my edge asterisk to pjsip at least twice because I
couldn't figure out how to configure it properly for a dynamic ip.  And
I sent a note to one of the lists at least on the 2nd attempt.

That install doesn't need nat for sip/rtp since it runs on the router,
but it does need to handle dynamic ip.

In short, this breaks sip for nearly everyone using asterisk at home and
even a lot of businesses.

It may not break it every day, but it is enough to drive a lot of people
away from asterisk once they learn of it.

had this issue been noted in that announce you'd have received -- I
expect -- quite a few complaints.

This flies in the face of all of the (very welcome) work which went into
supporting reload rather than restart.

Getting pjsip to support changes on a reload would be an acceptable
first step.
