SIP.conf – General option in SIP.conf

SIP Configuration – general

The [general] section of sip.conf includes the following variables:

  • allowsubscribe = yes|no : Allow or Ignore Subscribe requests
  • allow = <codec> : Allow codecs in order of preference (Use DISALLOW=ALL first, before allowing other codecs)
  • disallow = all : Disallow all codecs (global configuration)
  • allowexternaldomains = yes|no : Enable/Disable INVITE and REFER to non-local domains. Default yes. (New in v1.2.x).
  • allowguest = yes|no : Allow or reject guest calls. Default is yes. (this can also be set to ‘osp’ if asterisk was compiled with OSP support). (New in v1.2.x).
  • allowoverlap = yes|no : Enable/disable overlap dialing support. Default yes (Overlap dial provides for a longer time-out period between digits, also called the inter-digit timer. With overlap dial set to off, the gateway expects to receive the digits one right after the other coming in to this line with very little delay between digits. With overlap dial set to on, then the device waits up to about 2 seconds between digits).
  • autocreatepeer = yes|no : If set, anyone will be able to log in as a peer (with no check of credentials; useful for operation with SER). Default no.
  • autodomain = yes|no : Enable/disable Asterisk’s ability to add local hostnames and local IP address to the domain list. externip or externhost are also taken into the domain list. Default no. (New in v1.2.x).
  • bindaddr = IP_Address : IP Address to bind to (listen on). Default 0.0.0.0 (all network interfaces).
  • bindport = Number : UDP Port to bind to (listen on). Used to be port in Asterisk v1.0.x. Default 5060.
  • callerid = <string> : Caller ID information used when nothing else is available. Defaults to asterisk. (The ability to override the default appears to available in Asterisk 1.0.9. Unsure about other versions.)
  • canreinvite = update|yes|no|nonat (global setting): For some reason this defaults to yes, so beware…
  • checkmwi = Number : Global interval (in seconds) between mailbox checks. Default 10 seconds. (New in v1.2.x)
  • compactheaders = yes|no : Indicates Asterisk should send compact (i.e. abbreviated) headers in the SIP messages. Default no. (New in v1.2.x)
  • context = <contextname> : This is the default context and is used when a endpoint has no context property. The context in section of an endpoint is used to route calls from that endpoint to the wanted destination. The context body is located in extensions.conf.
  • defaultexpiry= Number : Default duration (in seconds) of incoming/outgoing registration. Default 120 seconds.
  • domain = domains : Comma separated list of domains which Asterisk is responsible for. (New in Asterisk 1.2.x)

  • externip = IP_Address or a hostname : Address that we’re going to put in SIP messages if we’re behind a NAT. If a hostname is used as the value, then the IP address associated with the hostname is looked up only once during the reading of the sip.conf. If you want support for a hostname associated with a dynamic IP address, use externhost.
  • externhost = hostname.tld : (New in Asterisk 1.2.x)
  • externrefresh = Number : Specify how often (in seconds) a hostname DNS lookup should be performed for the value entered in ‘externhost’. Default 10 seconds. (New in Asterisk 1.2.x).
  • fromdomain = <domain> : Sets default From: domain in SIP messages when acting as a SIP UAC (client)
  • ignoreregexpire = yes|no : Indicates whether to use Contact information about a peer even if the information is stale because it has reached its expiration time. Default no. (New in v1.2.x)
  • jbenable = yes|no : Enables the use of a jitterbuffer on the receiving side of a SIP channel. (Added in Version 1.4)
  • jbforce = yes|no : Forces the use of a jitterbuffer on the receive side of a SIP channel. Defaults to “no”. (Added in Version 1.4)
  • jbmaxsize = Number : Max length of the jitterbuffer in milliseconds. (Added in Version 1.4)
  • jbresyncthreshold = Number : Jump in the frame timestamps over which the jitterbuffer is resynchronized. Useful to improve the quality of the voice, with big jumps in/broken timestamps, usually sent from exotic devices and programs. Defaults to 1000. (Added in Version 1.4)
  • jbimpl = fixed|adaptive: Jitterbuffer implementation, used on the receiving side of a SIP channel. Two implementations are currently available – “fixed” (with size always equals to jbmaxsize) and “adaptive” (with variable size, actually the new jb of IAX2). Defaults to fixed.

  • callevents = yes|no: Set to yes to receive events on AMI when a call is put on/off hold.
  • disallowed_methods= (1.8.x) When a dialog is started with another SIP endpoint, the other endpoint should include an Allow header telling us what SIP methods the endpoint implements. However, some endpoints either do not include an Allow header or lie about what methods they implement. In the former case, Asterisk makes the assumption that the endpoint supports all known SIP methods. If you know that your SIP endpoint does not provide support for a specific method, then you may provide a comma-separated list of methods that your endpoint does not implement in the disallowed_methods option. Note that if your endpoint is truthful with its Allow header, then there is no need to set this option. This option may be set in the general section or may be set per endpoint. If this option is set both in the general section and in a peer section, then the peer setting completely overrides the general setting (i.e. the result is *not* the union of the two options). Note also that while Asterisk currently will parse an Allow header to learn what methods an endpoint supports, the only actual use for this currently is for determining if Asterisk may send connected line UPDATE requests. Its use may be expanded in the future.
  • preferred_codec_only= (1.8.x) Respond to a SIP invite with the single most preferred codec rather than advertising all joint codec capabilities. This limits the other side’s codec choice to exactly what we prefer.
  • engine= (1.8.x) RTP engine to use when communicating with the device
