.SH DESCRIPTION
.B sip-router 
or
.BR SIP
.BR Router 
is a very fast and configurable SIP proxy. 

.SH OPTIONS
.TP 12
.B \-h
Displays a short usage description, including all available options.
.TP
.BI \-c
Checks the config file and displays the aliases and listen interface list.
.TP
.BI \-r
Uses dns to check if it is necessary to add a "received=" field to a via.
.TP
.BI \-R
Same as 
.B \-r
but uses reverse dns.
.TP
.BI \-v
Turns on via host checking when forwarding replies.
.TP
.BI \-d
Turns on debugging, multiple
.B -d
increase the debug level.
.TP
.BI \-D
Runs sip-router in the foreground (it doesn't fork into daemon mode).
.TP
.BI \-E
Sends all the log messages to stderr.
.TP
.BI \-T
Disables TCP support.
.TP
.BI \-V
Displays the version number.
.TP
.BI \-f " config\-file"
Reads the configuration from 
.B " config\-file" 
(default
.I  /etc/sip-router/sip-router.cfg
).
.TP
.BI \-l " address"
Listens on the specified address/interface. Multiple 
.B \-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:127.0.0.1:5080, -l eth0:5062.
The default behaviour is to listen on all the ipv4 interfaces.
.TP
.BI \-n " processes\-no"
Specifies the number of children processes forked per interface (default 8).
.TP
.BI \-N " tcp processes\-no"
Specifies the number of children processes forked to handle tcp incoming connections (by default is equal to
.BI \-n
).
.TP
.BI \-b " max_rcv_buf_size"
Maximum receive buffer size which will not be exceeded by the auto-probing procedure even if the OS allows.
.TP
.BI \-m " shared_mem_size"
Size of the shared memory which will be allocated (in Megabytes).
.TP
.BI \-M " private_mem_size"
Size of the private memory which will be allocated per process (in Megabytes).
.TP
.BI \-w " working\-dir" 
Specifies the working directory. In the very improbable event that 
.B sip-router 
will crash, the core file will be generated here.
.TP
.BI \-t " chroot\-dir"
Forces 
.B sip-router 
to chroot after reading the config file.
.TP
.BI \-u " uid"
Changes the user id under which 
.B sip-router
runs.
.TP
.BI \-g " gid"
Changes the group id under which 
.B sip-router
runs.
.TP
.BI \-P " pid\-file"
Creates a file containing the pid of the main
.B sip-router
process.
.TP
.BI \-G " pgid\-file"
Creates a file containing the pgid of the main
.B sip-router
process.
.TP
.BI \-L " modules\-dir"
Specifies the directory where to look for
.B sip-router
modules (default: /usr/lib/sip-router/modules)
.TP
.BI \-a " auto\-aliases\-mode"
Enable auto-aliases with 'yes' or 'on', disable with 'no' or 'off
.TP
.BI \-A " pre\-processor\-define"
Add config pre-processor define (e.g., -A WITH_AUTH, -A N=1, -A X='"Y"')
