Python implementation of SiriProxy.

Project Description


pysiriproxy is a port of [SiriProxy]( (by @plamoni) from Ruby to Python developed.

Installing pysiriproxy

The following page contains step by step instructions for installing pysiriproxy on an Ubuntu system. These instructions have been tested on the following Ubuntu versions: 10.04, 11.10, and 12.04.

Installing and configuring dnsmasq

In order to intercept the commands being sent from the iPhone to Apple’s server you must install a program called dnsmasq onto a machine that will be connected to the same network as the iPhone. The following provides instructions on properly installing dnsmasq.

Run the following commands:

$ sudo apt-get install dnsmasq

Now, open the file /etc/dnsmasq.conf with the editor of your choice.

Search for #address=/ (this should be roughly the 62nd line). Once the line is found, replace that line with the following two lines:


Be sure to replace your machine’s IP address and then save the file. This will allow the pysiriproxy server accept connections from devices using either iOS 5 or iOS 6.

Finally, restart dnsmasq for the new IP address to take effect:

$ sudo /etc/init.d/dnsmasq restart

The above installation sequence was taken from How to install Siri Proxy.

Once pysiriproxy has been installed and configured you can follow the instructions on *changing the dnsmasq IP address* to easily change the IP address used by dnsmasq.
