Description:I've been trying to get Asterisk SVN-trunk-r48338 listening for SIP traffic on port 5061 instead of 5060, and it seems to be totally ignoring the setting "port = 5061" in /etc/asterisk/sip.conf.

Please advise if any diagnostics are required. I reproduce below a bit of the console output of /usr/sbin/asterisk -vvvgg:

^[[1;30;40m  == ^[[0;37;40mParsing '/etc/asterisk/sip.conf': Found
^[[1;30;40m  == ^[[0;37;40mParsing '/etc/asterisk/users.conf': Found
^[[1;30;40m  == ^[[0;37;40mSIP Listening on
^[[1;30;40m  == ^[[0;37;40mUsing SIP TOS: CS0
^[[1;30;40m  == ^[[0;37;40mParsing '/etc/asterisk/sip_notify.conf': Found
^[[1;30;40m  == ^[[0;37;40mRegistered channel type 'SIP' (Session Initiation Protocol (SIP))

And the bit of sip.conf is:

context         = default
port            = 5061
bindaddr        =
nat             = no
reinvite        = no
canreinvite     = no
disallow        = all
allow           = alaw
trustrpid       = yes
sendrpid        = yes
t38pt_udptl     = yes

There is no overriding of the port setting in any individual peer.

The name is "bindport".

If you check sip.conf.sample it's now "bindport" and "bindaddr".

the option you need to use is 'bindport' . 'port' is for remote server when registering.
