Important Notes

The SIP Header feature cannot generate a new SIP packet. Only arriving or leaving SIP packets changed via the SIP Header function.

Care must be exercised when modifying incoming SIP packets, especially with respects to the TO, FROM and RURI headers. Modifying tags, IDs or any other items that define the dialogue or transactions, will likely cause calls to not complete.
