[SIP SIMPLE client] [Blink] beginner SylkServer hiccups

Hi Saúl,

SylkServer has its defaults of MSRP over TCP.  The Blink account used to
connect to it has only had its defaults modified to set the same, MSRP
over TCP instead of the default of TLS.  And MWI subscription has been

In these logs the local Blink UA is (although for some reason
it picks up the IP of another interface in some places),
Opensips is and SylkServer is  In the
instances where the public IP of the SylkServer box appears in the logs,
I've regex'd that to

You can see in this scenario where the call connects with 200 OK.  The
only indication I receive of that connection in the Blink conference
window is the Record button in the toolbar becomes available.  The status
is still "Connecting..." and the circle icon is still spinning in the
bottom area.  After a period Blink sends the BYE and disconnects the call.
 I suspect this is because it never is able to set up its MSRP session.

The root cause of the MSRP session failure is the incorrect IP SylkServer
inserts into the SDP of the 200 OK referencing the MSRP URI:

Shouldn't it read something like this, spawning a process to use the
private IP accordingly?

SylkServer shouldn't be doing anything on the public IP of the server,
only the private  It seems to do okay with the SIP/RTP
traffic (I do have local_ip = in the [SIP] portion of
config.ini), but not so much with the MSRP portion.  Audio-only
conferences seem to work great.  Audio+Chat conferences that elect MSRP
over TLS, and therefore fail to set up the Chat portion, still work over
audio with the participant window correctly populated.

I think I'm close.  How might I get SylkServer to use the correct IP in
the MSRP portion?
