When we wrote last week’s article about netTALK and their terrific pricing, we were pleased to report that at least one company could offer a drop-in replacement for Google Voice without breaking the bank. But, alas, all is not well in netTALK Land. For openers, the Better Business Bureau revoked their accreditation last June because of failure to respond to or resolve technical complaints. And a recent SEC Filing paints a fairly bleak picture… Read More ›

What a difference a couple months make! For those that are keeping an eye on the UCM6100 Asterisk® PBX from Grandstream, we wanted to provide some additional insights based upon two firmware updates that Grandstream has released since the PBX was first introduced earlier this summer.

Last year, we began our exploration of safe SIP options for Asterisk® by introducing a hybrid solution using VoIP.ms for a registered SIP trunk and IPkall for a free DID. Today, in addition to a free IPkall DID to accept incoming PSTN calls, we have a slightly different approach that provides a direct SIP URI address from Sip2Sip.info for your server. As with the original tutorial, today’s implementation preserves our Zero Internet Footprint™ design for total SIP insulation of your… Read More ›

But, as often happens, one of our gurus on the PIAF Forum comes up with a terrific discovery that we just can’t wait to pass along. This week… Read More ›

It’s… Read More ›

PBX in a Flash™ has a long (safe) history in the VoIP community, and the major reason is that we constantly preach never directly exposing any ports on your Asterisk® server to the Internet without implementing a WhiteList of safe IP addresses. This Zero Internet Footprint™ design keeps everybody out except a trusted, defined group on your WhiteList. For everyone else, they never see your server. So how do you receive calls?
