       kamailio or SIP Router is a very fast and configurable SIP proxy.


       -h          Displays a short usage description, including all available

       -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 mode);
                   -DD  -  do  not  daemonize  creator  (main  process  is not
                   -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

       -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

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

       -L modules-dir
                   Specifies  the directory where to look for kamailio modules
                   (default: /usr/lib/kamailio/modules)

       -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"')
