[OpenSIPS-Users] Opensips change the order of requests

I would say this an UA issue - OpenSIPS does not do any enforcing on the 
order of outgoing SIP packets, so if the UA sends an INVITE immediately 
followed by an UPDATE, there exists the risk of the UPDATE reaching the 
endpoint first ( even if the proxy would maintain the the packet order, 
since UDP is used as transport, there would still be no guarantee that 
the endpoint receives them in the same order ).

Can you configure the UA to only send the UPDATE after the INVITE 
transaction has finished ? This would be the only way to ensure there 
are no races.

Best Regards,
