Hi All;

How can I get a SIP trace to troubleshoot a one way of communications? I need to see what is happenning in the packets to know the reason of the problem.

Thanks
Regards

  • Hi,

    Sip debug can be enabled thru asterisk CLI. SIP signaling trace is printed on the console or terminal if you’re connected on asterisk CLI.

    If you want a complete trace of signaling & media packets, packet capturing tools like tcpdump, ethereal & wireshark will perfectly address your concerns.

    Try to be oriented on the packet capturing tools available on the OS your asterisk is installed with.

    Install ngrep on the box. Then type something like.

    ngrep -tq -W byline port 5060

    Replace with the IP of the UA you want to monitor.
