You have to differentiate between calls with one side behind nat and the
other one on a pubic IP that is like a server/gateway and can accept new
connections, even for requests within dialog.

My initial change to the default config file was done in the perspective
that the respective configuration is routing between local users, where
is not common for a user device to register, then close the connection,
because it was using a ephemeral port anyhow.
