Embed from Getty Images Incredible PBX remains one of the most secure VoIP server platforms on the planet for one simple reason. We always deploy a preconfigured Linux IPtables firewall with a whitelist that hides your server from everyone except you and trusted VoIP providers. IPtables is automatically configured and deployed as part of every initial install of Incredible PBX regardless of your platform. This includes XiVO with Debian 8 as well as CentOS 6 and 7, Ubuntu 14.04, Raspbian… Read More ›

We don’t want anyone to think Incredible PBX is a one-trick pony. 2016 is all about choices and Gotcha-Free VoIP alternatives. We spent last week in the mountains taking a careful look at Ubuntu 16.04 and CentOS 7. Despite the promises that LTS releases of Ubuntu wouldn’t break things that used to work, Ubuntu 16.04 breaks things. Specifically, ODBC as we know it is non-existent. And MySQL is a very different beast with InnoDB now a mandatory component. Those were… Read More ›

So you’re in a hurry and need a quick way to remind yourself of an upcoming appointment. With Siri or your Apple Watch, you can say “Hey Siri, set an alarm for 9 a.m.” On an Android phone, just say “OK Google, set an alarm for 9 a.m.” And with the Amazon Echo, shout out “Alexa, set an alarm for 9 a.m.” But, hey, everyone doesn’t have a fancy smartphone or an Echo. Besides that, they’re not always convenient. If… Read More ›

Remember that girl that you never much noticed in high school that happened to cross your path years later and there was that instant attraction. It’s one of our favorite country songs. What a month it has been. 30 days ago we’d never met. And then it happened. We were introduced to XiVO by a single post on the PIAF Forum. It’s difficult to choose a single adjective that describes how feature-rich XiVO is as a real-time Asterisk platform. Ten… Read More ›

Embed from Getty Images With the impending demise of Copy.com, it seemed like a good time to revisit the subject of backups and to do a little advance preparation for that rainy day when your Incredible PBX™ server decides it’s taken its last breath. We recently documented how to build an Incredible PBX in the Cloud for a one-time cost of $10.50. And we showed you how to build a Linux Sandbox in the Cloud for the same bargain-basement price.… Read More ›

Embed from Getty Images About once a year, we try to shine the spotlight on Asterisk® security in hopes of saving lots of organizations and individuals a little bit (or a lot) of money. In light of last week’s major security lapse in the Asterisk® dialplan of those using FreePBX® since the Asterisk@Home days, now seemed like a good time for a review. As we’ve noted before, the problem with open source phone systems is they’re open source phone systems.… Read More ›

Embed from Getty Images The one thing we’ve learned over the past decade is that everyone’s telecommunications needs are different. We began the Incredible PBX™ project by offering a script for PBX in a Flash™ that enhanced its functionality by adding three dozen applications for Asterisk® plus a rock-solid, preconfigured firewall. We expanded on that initial design by offering installers to support both Elastix® 4.0 and even the FreePBX® Distro and AsteriskNOW. But many asked for something more. Some wanted… Read More ›
