Errors in message flows


In the SIP response codes some responses indicate a failure :

 ●  4xx indicating a Client Failure Response

 ●  5xx indicating a Server Failure Response

 ●  6xx indicating a Global Failure Response

When one these 4xx, 5xx or 6xx responses occurs then the corresponding flow is entered in the Errors table.

Following response codes are excluded since they do not indicate real errors :

 ●  401 Unauthorized

 ●  403 Forbidden

 ●  407 Proxy Authentication

 ●  486 Busy Here

 ●  487 Request Terminated

Per SIP method there is a tab indicating the Errors in the message flows.
