       kamailio or SIP 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.

       -K          Turns on via host checking when forwarding replies.

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

       -D          Control how daemonize is done:
                   -D - do not fork (almost) anyway (run in foreground, doesn't fork into  daemon
                   -DD - do not daemonize creator (main process is not daemonized);
                   -DDD - daemonize (default)

       -E          Sends all the log messages to stderr.

       -T          Disables TCP support.

       -V          Displays the version number.

       -I          Displays details of internal constants and attributes.

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

       -M private_mem_size
                   Size of the private memory which will be allocated per process (in Megabytes).

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

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

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

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

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

       -G pgid-file
                   Creates a file containing the pgid of the main kamailio process.

       -L modules-dir
                   Specifies   the  directory  where  to  look  for  kamailio  modules  (default:

       -a auto-aliases-mode
                   Enable auto-aliases with 'yes' or 'on', disable with 'no' or 'off

       -A pre-processor-define
                   Add config pre-processor define (e.g., -A WITH_AUTH, -A N=1, -A X='"Y"')
