Assuming you are using the latest version of Asterisk, put the following in your sip.conf:


You can use tcpbindaddr= if you want to use all network interfaces to listen on TCP.

Good Luck !

After making change in SIP.conf, can I just connect to Asterisk daemon (asterisk -r) and reload the SIP (sip reload) for the change to take effect ?

Theoretically, this is all that's required:

shell~> asterisk -rvvv
asterisk*CLI> sip reload

To make sure you are now listening on TCP ports, you can issue the command:
shell~> netstat -an

You might want to try and restart the whole asterisk application if it doesn't seem to kick in.
