The “SIP/2.0 403 Forbidden” response is a status code in the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), which is a protocol used for initiating, maintaining, modifying, and terminating real-time sessions that involve video, voice, messaging, and other communications between two or more endpoints on IP networks.
The “403 Forbidden” response indicates that the request was understood by the server, but the server refuses to authorize it. This can occur when the server has insufficient permissions to access the requested resource, or when the client lacks the necessary credentials to access the resource.
The “From:”, “To:”, “Call-ID:”, “CSeq:”, “Server:”, “Allow:”, “Supported:”, “Session-Expires:”, “Content-Length:”, “Via:”, “Contact:”, and “Record-Route:” headers are all headers that can be included in a SIP message. The “From:”, “To:”, and “Call-ID:” headers are required in all SIP requests and responses, while the other headers are optional.
