Hi everyone,

When doing a “sip show settings” on Asterisk, I see the following:

Match Auth Username: No
Allow unknown access: Yes
Allow subscriptions: Yes
Allow overlap dialing: Yes
Allow promsic. redir: No
Enable call counters: No

What do each of above signify?


One thought on - Clarification of the terms shown on CLI

  • from

    ;match_auth_username=yes ; if available, match user entry using the
    ; ‘username’ field from the authentication line
    ; instead of the From: field.
    ;allowguest=no ; Allow or reject guest calls (default is yes)
    ; If your Asterisk is connected to the Internet
    ; and you have allowguest=yes
    ; you want to check which services you offer everyone
    ; out there, by enabling them in the default context (see below).
    ;allowsubscribe=no ; Disable support for subscriptions.
    (Default is yes)
    allowoverlap=no ; Disable overlap dialing support.
    (Default is yes) < --- btw this one is funny
    ;promiscredir = no ; If yes, allows 302 or REDIR to
    non-local SIP address
    ; Note that promiscredir when
    redirects are made to the
    ; local system will cause loops since
    Asterisk is incapable
    ; of performing a “hairpin” call.
    ;callcounter = yes ; Enable call counters on devices.
    This can be set per
    ; device too.
