=== Description ===

SIP protocol offers a discovery capability. If a user wants to initiate a session
with another user, he must discover the current host(s) at which the
destination user is reachable. To do this, SIP network elements consult an
abstract service known as a location service, which provides address
bindings for a particular domain. Registration entails sending a REGISTER
request to a special type of UAS known as a registrar. A registrar acts as
the front end to the location service for a domain, reading and writing
mappings based on the contents of REGISTER requests. This location service
is then typically consulted by a proxy server that is responsible for
routing requests for that domain.

This script implements REGISTER method, which registers the contact (ip, port and transport) for a given address of record (SIP address).
