If you’ve ever shopped at the outlet malls, you quickly learn that things are often not quite as they appear on first blush. Labels inside shirts have either been removed or mangled in some way to keep you from returning the merchandise to a ‘real store’ for a refund at full retail price. Socks in particular always have a habit of sprouting a hole after you’ve worn them about twice. For those that were ever in the military, you may… Read More ›

On May 15, 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 ›

Short Answer: No way, José!     Right Answer: Sangoma should fix it.     Our Answer: New GPL Repo fixes it… today! We began our series on FreePBX® by providing a GPL-compliant alternative to the base design of the FreePBX GUI minus the elements which have made redistribution and/or code modification difficult despite the clear language of the product’s GPL licenses. In our last article, we introduced new turnkey versions of Incredible PBX for CentOS featuring your choice of the 2.11 or 12.0 Incredible PBX… Read More ›

For anyone that wants to run FreePBX® 12 with a module not produced or sold by Sangoma without being bombarded with daily emails and nasty security warnings in your GUI, here’s a portion of the agreement Sangoma would like you to sign: And the response to those that dare claim such a practice is damaging the fabric of the Asterisk open source community: Ward believes that he can run around, signing modules that attack other peoples machines, and then when… Read More ›

Some of us have spent years developing secure VoIP solutions for Asterisk® that protect your phone bill while bringing Cloud-based solutions within reach of virtually anyone. So it’s particularly disappointing when a hardware manufacturer spreads fear, uncertainty, and doubt in order to peddle their hardware. In this case, it happens to be Session Border Controllers (SBCs). We want you to watch this latest "infomercial" for yourself: https://youtu.be/Bp_7m64k_ko To hear Sangoma tell it, every VoIP server protected by merely a firewall… Read More ›

This time around the latest iteration features secure OAUTH authentication so there’s no need to divulge your Google Voice credentials. Once you’ve set up your… Read More ›

DEC. 7 NEWS FLASH: The Elastix project has been sold to 3CX. Elastix 4.0 and Elastix MT have been removed from production "due to a legal disagreement with another open source distribution."
