# sngrep [![Build Status](https://travis-ci.org/irontec/sngrep.svg)](https://travis-ci.org/irontec/sngrep)
sngrep is a tool for displaying SIP calls message flows from terminal.
It supports live capture to display realtime SIP packets and can also be used
as PCAP viewer.

* [Debian / Ubuntu](https://github.com/irontec/sngrep/wiki/Installing-Binaries#debian--ubuntu)
* [CentOS / RedHat / Fedora](https://github.com/irontec/sngrep/wiki/Installing-Binaries#centos--fedora--rhel)
* [Alpine Linux](https://github.com/irontec/sngrep/wiki/Installing-Binaries#alpine-linux)
### Building from sources
- libncurses5 - for UI, windows, panels.
- libpcap - for capturing packets.
- libssl - (optional) for TLS transport decrypt using OpenSSL and libcrypt
- gnutls - (optional) for TLS transport decrypt using GnuTLS and libgcrypt
- libncursesw5 - (optional) for UI, windows, panels (wide-character support)
- libpcre - (optional) for Perl Compatible regular expressions
On most systems the commands to build will be the standard autotools procedure:
make install (as root)
You can pass following flags to ./configure to enable some features
| configure flag | Feature |
| ------------- | ------------- |
| `--with-openssl` | Adds OpenSSL support to parse TLS captured messages (req. libssl) |
| `--with-gnutls` | Adds GnuTLS support to parse TLS captured messages (req. gnutls) |
| `--with-pcre`| Adds Perl Compatible regular expressions support in regexp fields |
| `--enable-unicode` | Adds Ncurses UTF-8/Unicode support (req. libncursesw5) |
| `--enable-ipv6` | Enable IPv6 packet capture support. |
| `--enable-eep` | Enable EEP packet send/receive support. |
You can find [detailed instructions for some distributions](https://github.com/irontec/sngrep/wiki/Building) on wiki.
See `--help` for a list of available flags and their syntax
For example, sngrep can be used to view SIP packets from a pcap file, also applying filters
sngrep -I file.pcap host 192.168.1.1 and port 5060
or live capturing, saving packets to a new file
sngrep -d eth0 -O save.pcap port 5060 and udp
You can configure some options using [sngreprc](https://github.com/irontec/sngrep/wiki/Configuration) file
