Thanks Andreas, I have LCR working now as a basic example.
I notice though that calls are not being rated. Every call I make is left
as 'unrated' against the subscriber. Is there a rating script I need to run?
Also there seems to be an option to use a permanent Contact header rather
than a SIP REGISTER, is this something that is supported? Even when I fill
it in I am being asked for Auth credentials within a 407.
