Interconnecting Asterisk Servers with PJsip and OpenVPN

Interconnecting Asterisk Servers with PJsip and OpenVPN

It’s been several years since we discussed interconnecting Asterisk® servers so today we want to do a version refresh using PJsip Trunking. We also want to show you how easy it is to secure the communications path by setting up the trunks using OpenVPN connections. When we’re finished, you’ll have a FREE way to call between sites using FreePBX® Outbound Routes. Because Incredible PBX comes preconfigured with all the components you’ll need, we’ll use that platform to further simplify the… Read More ›

5 Minute Wonder: Incredible PBX 2022 in Cloud for $25/Yr.

We’ve been building turnkey Incredible PBX® servers for virtual machine platforms for many years. Because the servers are built from images, typical install times have been 5 minutes or less with Proxmox, VirtualBox, and VMware ESXi. But the missing piece has been a similar image install on a true cloud-based platform. This limitation was primarily due to the fact that we don’t own or control the available cloud platforms which typically limit image installs to operating systems such as CentOS,… Read More ›

Migrating Incredible PBX 2021 to a PUBLIC Facing Cloud PBX

Migrating Incredible PBX 2021 to a PUBLIC Facing Cloud PBX

Today we want to again enhance the migration of Incredible PBX 2021 into a PUBLIC-facing Cloud PBX. What that means is authorized users can connect a SIP phone to the PBX regardless of where the user might be located without worries about an ever-changing dynamic IP address and the requirement to whitelist the new IP address. A PUBLIC-facing PBX also provides free SIP URI connectivity to users of your PBX by anyone from anywhere in the world. In other words,… Read More ›

We’ve previously documented how to change Incredible PBX 2021 and Incredible PBX 2020 into PUBLIC-facing PBXs. What that means is that authorized users could still connect to your PBX regardless of where they may be located without having to worry about whitelisting IP addresses. To suggest that the procedure was convoluted is a bit of an understatement. So today we offer a simplified solution that you can deploy in a couple of minutes. It lacks some of the safeguards of… Read More ›

We’ve completed the rollout of Incredible PBX 2021 for Debian 10 and, thanks to the terrific work of @jaminmc, today we’re pleased to introduce Incredible PBX 2021 for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS with its ten-year life cycle. For the next few weeks, you probably should consider this beta, non-production code because we still are sorting out a few wrinkles. But everything looks good, and we’re comfortable releasing this as Ubuntu has its roots in Debian. In addition to @jaminmc, we also… Read More ›

Shifting gears is never easy, and sometimes it takes ill-advised corporate blunders to move the needle. But IBM®’s decimation of the CentOS project last month coupled with the Sangoma® Ransomware fiasco were just the motivation we needed to shift into overdrive and explore alternatives for the Incredible PBX® 2021 project. After six beta releases, we are delighted to introduce Incredible PBX 2021 with ClearlyIP’s FreePBX® 15 module protection and your choice of either Asterisk® 16 or the Asterisk 18 LTS… Read More ›

With the almost overnight popularity of the new Clearly Anywhere softphone which provides Incredible PBX connectivity from virtually anywhere, we wanted to add a missing piece to our Incredible PBX 2021 release. Because softphones need connectivity on both cellular networks and using Wi-Fi with dynamic IP addresses in multiple locations, exclusive whitelist-based access to Incredible PBX platforms simply was no longer feasible. Additionally, due to Clearly Anywhere’s tight integration with the FreePBX® User Control Panel (UCP), remote access to UCP… Read More ›
