the source port of tcp connections is typically an ephemeral port,
that's due to tcp design and os layer implementation. Newer kernels have
the option for reuse port for tcp, but even then it cannot be guaranteed
always -- there should be an option for recent kamailios as well.
Maybe it can be enforced inside the c code of siptrace modue, when the
hep header is built. I expect port 0 is set when it is not known for
