We use this (check_sip):


If you're growing your own without Net::SIP (it's not hard to do SIP 
using the socket library either, to be perfectly honest) you can look at 
'sipsak' which has a number of useful CLI options, I don't know that any 
of them are specifically "OPTIONS" but you may be able to hack up 
something roughly equivalent with that.
