Projects / pcapsipdump


pcapsipdump is a tool for dumping (recording) SIP sessions (and RTP traffic, if available) to disk in a fashion similar to "tcpdump -w" (the format is exactly the same). The difference is that the data is saved with one file per SIP session. Even if there are thousands of concurrect SIP sessions, each goes to separate file.

    Release Notes: This release adds an option to record RTCP, fixes crashes on non-RFC-compliant (LF-terminated) SIP requests, allows capturing on RAW IP interfaces and DLT_LINUX_SLL (113) interfaces, switches to pcap_next_ex (fixing program termination when there is no traffic on the interface), ports the code to Sun Sparc/Solaris, fixes the startup script for SUSE compatibility, and cleans the code.

        •  29 Jan 2007 18:57

          Release Notes: This release adds basic command line options. It adds an optional fork() call to pcapsipdump so that it runs as a daemon. An install target has been added to the Makefile. A redhat directory has been added with a Red Hat/CentOS/Fedora init script, a sysconfig script, an RPM spec file, and README.txt.

            Release Notes: Minor code cleanup in order to (hopefully) improve portability. The licence status has been clarified with the inclusion of the GPL copyright clauses in each source file, and the inclusion of a LICENCE file in the distribution.
