Is there any SIP-client for Ubuntu which has command-line interface? So, for example, I can make calls without using any GUI, just sending commands to the application.


There are lot of sip clients which support command-line.

Pjsua is a sip client. check this for features of pjsua

You can download pjsua from here


Exactly this https://docs-new.sipthor.net/w/sip_clients/sip_session/ from https://sipsimpleclient.org/

You only need to install sudo apt-get install sipclients

Check out the repos here: https://docs-new.sipthor.net/w/debian_package_repositories/


you can do this with skype. see:

  • Skype does not support SIP, so not really an answer to the OP. – Guss May 3 '17 at 10:15

    Please read the question again - it starts: "Is there any SIP-client for Ubuntu..." – Guss Nov 16 '17 at 18:47
  • @Guss please read the content and consider two points. fact: someone voted the silly answer up (you can cancel that out, of course) -- potentially that was the OP. Second, consider the x/y problem and the stated question. Whatevs. – Thufir Nov 17 '17 at 5:01
