As we’re all hunkered down hiding from the Coronavirus, it seemed a perfect time to finally tackle the project we’ve been putting off for longer than we care to publish, integrating Incredible Fax with HylaFax and Avantfax into the base image of Incredible PBX® 2020 on the Raspberry Pi 4 platform. This build also features Asterisk® 16 with the latest FreePBX® 15 GPL modules plus the feature sets of Incredible PBX® and RasPBX and RonR’s latest build. It includes support… Read More ›

If one can only claim to be an expert in one subject matter, ours would be working from home building and deploying Asterisk®-based VoIP servers. We’ve been doing it for more than a decade. And, as the need for social distancing becomes imperative with the spread of COVID-19, working from home is by far the best antidote. For those with jobs in an actual office, you still need your computer and you still need transparent office phone call access. With… Read More ›

Travelin’ Man 3: A Plug-and-Play Firewall for Incredible PBX

Seven years ago we introduced Travelin’ Man 3 to simplify the task of securing the Incredible PBX® VoIP platforms. Today we want to reexamine the Travelin’ Man 3 firewall design for the benefit of those that are new to Asterisk® and FreePBX®. In the old days, FreePBX-based VoIP servers were notoriously vulnerable because of numerous bugs in the original FreePBX code which was developed by dozens of developers around the world with very different skill sets. Not only did you… Read More ›

Sangoma Developments Affecting All FreePBX Users

On Friday evening, Sangoma announced that they would be revoking the FreePBX® signing key of Clearly IP. The key was independently developed and copyrighted by Rob Thomas, who was the original developer of FreePBX. As we indicated in a previous article, we suspect that this is merely the first step in a process to replace Rob Thomas’s GPG key with a Sangoma-proprietary key. Indeed, tired_runner on the DSL Reports forum has reported that he "installed Framework 15.0.16.38 which apparently refreshes… Read More ›

The ink was barely dry on Bill Wignall’s December Ode to Open Source in which the CEO sang the praises of Sangoma’s commitment to open source development and extolled the virtues of "reinventing the ways in which we foster relationships with you, our open source community." We’ve now learned that Sangoma is planning to revoke the master key used to sign every FreePBX® module. It will be replaced with a new master key. This affects every developer with an existing… Read More ›
