[OpenSIPS-Users] What does mean "a=inactive"?

I would start by looking at a trace. Is it A changing the SDP attribute? or
is OpenSIPS doing it?
Inactive obviously means "Keep the session live, but dont send me any
audio, and I won't send you any audio".
I've seen that happen once, when both end points couldnt establish a
codec.. due to processing error or something like that, but instead of
sending an appropriate error, it just connects the call and send that.
Hope that helps,
