Before we get started today, let’s clear the air on a few things that have been brought to our attention. We’re not opposed to any organization making money. That includes Digium® and Sangoma®. And we fully appreciate that both of these companies need to make money to continue to deliver first rate products like Asterisk® and FreePBX®. Our fundamental disagreement with SchmoozeCom and now Sangoma stems from their sales methodology. In a nutshell, they’ve taken what purports to be an… Read More ›

View image | gettyimages.com After frequent complaints from our FreePBX® users, we introduced a firewall application for the PBX in a Flash™ and Incredible PBX™ platforms that protected FreePBX resources. That was over 5 years ago. The product became Travelin’ Man™ 3, an IPtables-based WhiteList that totally eliminated access to your Asterisk® server unless a WhiteList entry had been authorized by the administrator. The application was further embellished over the years to facilitate access by remote users. First, we introduced… Read More ›

View image | gettyimages.com Part of our fundamental disagreement with the FreePBX® design can be summed up in one word: FIREWALL or the lack of a functioning firewall in the FreePBX Distro and in the functionally identical Digium product, AsteriskNOW®.1 Most of the other design choices including the controversial, non-GPL compliant Module Signature Checking mechanism are touted as failsafe ways to detect altered systems even though changes in FreePBX MySQL tables and Asterisk config files can be modified easily without… Read More ›

View image | gettyimages.com Each year we like to revisit the topic of choosing the best Asterisk® platform for deployment in the home and small business environment. No solution is obviously right for everybody. But we think it’s important to sketch out the relevant factors that need careful evaluation before you begin the installation process. Our focus today is open source, GPL platforms with Asterisk for home or SOHO deployments. That excludes a broad swath of equally capable commercial or… Read More ›

If you’re looking for the latest and greatest pure GPL, open source Asterisk® 13 aggregation with a pure GPL, open source graphical user interface, then today’s another lucky day for you. Last week, we introduced the Ubuntu 14 edition of Incredible PBX™ for Asterisk 13, and this week we have the CentOS/Scientific Linux flavor to share. This is an independent aggregation based solely upon GPL code. Unlike the competition, the operating system and cloud repository to support the product also… Read More ›

Two months ago we turned the page on Asterisk® GUIs by introducing a new GUI that hopefully provides the best of both worlds. It preserves the GPL components of the FreePBX® product that many of us have nurtured for almost a decade while removing the commercial pieces that have introduced some friction into the equation for users and companies that simply wished to deploy or redistribute a graphical user interface for Asterisk in accordance with the free GPL licenses under… Read More ›

We’ve been huge fans of the Raspberry Pi since its introduction. And the Raspberry Pi 2 with its quad-core processor and gig of RAM transformed the platform from a tinkerer’s dream machine into a production workhorse. Four months ago, we introduced our Gotcha-Free PBX with Asterisk® 11 for the new platform. But Asterisk-GUI had a steep learning curve, and Digium now has officially discontinued support of what we believe was a terrific product with enormous potential. So today we’re pleased… Read More ›
