       ser or Sip Express Router is a very fast and configurable SIP proxy.


       -h          Displays a short usage description, including all available options.

       -c          Checks the config file and displays the aliases and listen interface list.

       -r          Uses dns to check if it is necessary to add a "received=" field to a via.

       -R          Same as -r but uses reverse dns.

       -v          Turns on via host checking when forwarding replies.

       -d          Turns on debugging, multiple -d increase the debug level.

       -D          Runs ser in the foreground (it doesn't fork into daemon mode).

       -E          Sends all the log messages to stderr.

       -T          Disables TCP support.

       -V          Displays the version number.

       -f config-file
                   Reads the configuration from  config-file (default /etc/ser/ser.cfg ).

       -l address  Listens  on  the  specified  address/interface.  Multiple -l mean listening on
                   multiple addresses. The address format is [proto:]address[:port], where  proto
                   = udp|tcp and address = host|ip_address|interface_name. Example: -l localhost,
                   -l udp:, -l eth0:5062.  The default behaviour is  to  listen  on
                   all the ipv4 interfaces.

       -n processes-no
                   Specifies the number of children processes forked per interface (default 8).

       -N tcp processes-no
                   Specifies  the  number  of  children  processes  forked to handle tcp incoming
                   connections (by default is equal to -n ).

       -b max_rcv_buf_size
                   Maximum receive buffer size which will not be  exceeded  by  the  auto-probing
                   procedure even if the OS allows.

       -m shared_mem_size
                   Size of the shared memory which will be allocated (in Megabytes).

       -w working-dir
                   Specifies  the  working  directory. In the very improbable event that ser will
                   crash, the core file will be generated here.

       -t chroot-dir
                   Forces ser to chroot after reading the config file.

       -u uid      Changes the user id under which ser runs.

       -g gid      Changes the group id under which ser runs.

       -P pid-file Creates a file containing the pid of the main ser process.
