sipsak is a command line tool for performing
various tests on Session Initiation Protocol
(SIP) applications and devices. It can make several
different tests, send the contents of a file, and
interpret and react on the responses. It supports (de-) registration with given contact URIs and digest authentication.
A new option allows to add any header to the
outgoing requests. The variable replacement option
now accepts any number of attribute value pairs.
Besides MD5 now SHA1 is support as digest
authentication algorithm. The password for
authentication can be read from stdin to prevent
password disclosure in the process list. Fixed
problems when executed as user root and compiles
fine again under cygwin.
This release supports TCP as a transport protocol. From this version on, c-ares is the preferred library for DNS SRV lookups (in favor of rulil), because this library should be portable to a lot more operating systems. This release compiles and runs on CygWin again. Bugs in nanosleep, variable replacement, and MD5 detection were fixed.
There are two new options for setting the From header and the maximum INVITE timeout value. This release supports GNUTLS in addition to OpenSSL. It contains several fixes: compilation on Solaris, building of ACKs, issues with port and username from request URI and outbound proxy, mis-interpretation of ICMP errors, incorrect destination port from SRV entries, and case-sensitivity.
As a side effect of rewriting some parts of the code, several changes are notable for the users. A new option allows you to force symmetric signaling when used in non-root mode. The z option takes a percentage argument. The Via header contains RFC3261-compliant branches, and INVITE replies will automatically responded with an ACK. The outbound proxy will be used even after redirection.
