[OpenSIPS-Users] Handling Timeouts Between INVITE Provisional Responses

fr_timeout is the interval between the request and the first provisional 
reply - shortly, how long to to wait for the first provisional reply.

fr_inv_timeout is the interval between the request and the final reply 
(2xx or negative) - shortly, how long to wait for completing the 

So you can use different values for these 2 timers for a transaction to 
get the desired behavior.

In other words let's say we receive a 100 TRYING but then see a very long delay until the next provisional reply (specifically 183 Ringing).  Is there a way to timeout the request so that we can route advance to another gateway?

On such a call our initial INVITE almost immediately sees the 100 Trying but then we might see another 25-30 seconds before we seeing another provisional response such as 183 Ringing or a final response.

Is this at all possible?  Serial forking to the next gateway would be fine but parallel forking would be preferred after the provisional timeout occurred.  We'd just not want to route advance if we received the 183 Ringing provisional response.
