Target Release Version/s: None
Security Level: None
Asterisk 1.8 validates the host in the Contact URI of a REGISTER/INVITE. Such a URI host must be a valid IP address or a resolvable hostname (via DNS A/AAAA) for Asterisk to accept the request. This is not a real requirement in RFC 3261.
This validation makes sense for the case in which such a URI will be used for routing requests to the peer, but it makes no sense at all (it's useless) when the peer is configured with nat=yes (so the Contact URI is ignored and instead the real source IP:port used for sending outgoing requests to the peer).
