This page documents any useful tools, tips or examples on moving from the old chan_sip channel driver to the new chan_pjsip/res_pjsip added in Asterisk 12.

Configuration Conversion Script

There Contained within a download of Asterisk, there is a Python script available to provide ,, found within the contrib/scripts/sip_to_pjsip subdirectory, that provides a basic conversion of a sip.conf config to a pjsip.conf config. It is not intended to work for every scenario or configuration; for basic configurations it should provide a good example of how to convert it over to pjsip.conf style config.

To insure that the script can read any #include'd files, run it from the /etc/asterisk directory or in another location with a copy of the sip.conf and any included files. The default input file is sip.conf, and the default output file is pjsip.conf. Any included files will also be converted, and written out with a pjsip_ prefix, unless changed with the --prefix=xxx option.
