Fixed In:
12.0.0, 11.6.0 HF6

Opened: Apr 01, 2014

Severity: 3-Major


The minimum of the Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) and TCP profile timeouts is applied to the RTP and RTCP connflows associated with an RTSP connection.


The shorter timeout (either RTSP profile or TCP profile) is used for the idle timeout on RTP and RTCP flows associated with an RTSP connection.


This problem can leave UDP connflows for RTP and RTCP open for a shorter time period than desired.


To workaround this issue configure both the TCP and the RTSP profile so that the idle timeout periods are the same.

Fix Information

With the fix, the RTP and RTCP timeouts use the value configured in the RTSP profile.
