Asterisk 1.6.1-rc1

I installed this version on a linux box centos 5.2 and it works great.

How can I see in the logs, when a user / phone has registered in the system? In 1.4., I could look in the messages and see who and when they registered.

Also, when I do a sip show peers, none of the extensions show up. When I do a sip show users, also none of the extensions come up.

Are there new commands to see this information?

Thanks for your assistance.


I believe that Asterisk 1.6.1 no longer has a concept of SIP users, at least as far as its internal data structures are concerned.

ok, then how would I find out the status of the users in the system?

I used to use sip show users, what is the new command?

Also, when a user is registered, is there a log entry for the user now?



could be your config?

what’s your sip.conf / example of your realtime user

the users are in the users.conf file.

Here is an example:

username = 2001
transfer = yes

mailbox = 2001
call-limit = 100

fullname = 2001

registersip = no
host = dynamic
context = DLPN_MyDialPlan
cid_number = 2001
hasvoicemail = yes
vmsecret = 2001
email =
threewaycalling = yes
hasdirectory = yes
callwaiting = yes
hasmanager = no
hasagent = yes
hassip = yes
hasiax = no
secret = polycom
nat = no
canreinvite = no
dtmfmode = rfc2833
insecure = no
pickupgroup = 1
disallow = all
allow = ulaw,gsm
autoprov = no
label =
macaddress =
linenumber = 1

What is funny, is that I loaded on the same linux box and I was able to do a sip show peers and the peers showed up. The problem with is that it gives an error when attempting to use asterisk gui, but 1.6.1-rc1 does not give this error. A problem with permissions and the gui directory.

Thanks for the assistance.


1.6.1 is not intended to be completely backward compatible with 1.6.0.x.

See and

david’s answer is correct…i’ve tried it on a 1.4 and 1.6

I understand that there was a change to the code.

Are there new cli commands that go with this change? Also in the sip registration process, does it log when a user is registered or not registered?
