Simon, I appriciate your effort to make linphone easy-to-use, but sometimes it
hurts. Like in this case. Let's say you have multihomed host or network
without default gateway. You can have thousand reasons why the "public"
IP is not reachable. And then linphone uses bad IP address.

Could you make this IP configurable per SIP proxy? Sure, you can keep
the autoguess functionality, but some override mechanism would be nice.
