Title : SIP Extension for Registering Non-Adjacent Contacts
Author(s) : D. Willis, B. Hoeneisen
Filename : draft-willis-sip-path-07.txt
Pages : 18

The REGISTER function is used in a SIP system primarily to associate
a temporary contact address with an address-of-record. This contact
is generally in the form of a URI, such as Contact:
<sip:email@example.com> and is generally dynamic and associated
with the IP address or hostname of the SIP UA. The problem is that
network topology may have one or more SIP proxies between the UA and
the registrar, such that any request travelling from the user's home
network to the registered UA must traverse these proxies. The
REGISTER method does not give us a mechanism to discover and record
this sequence of proxies in the registrar for future use. This
document defines an extension header field, 'Path' which provides
such a mechanism

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
