Today we want to show you how to reconfigure Incredible PBX 2022 for Rocky 8 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.… 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 ›

This will not be the sexiest column you read this year, but it may be the most important. You need a reliable way for your VoIP-based PBX to deliver emails to you and your users when incoming voicemails arrive and when your server has problems. At least for Incredible PBX® platforms, we thought we had this solved with our Gmail Smarthost solution. But, alas, Google continues to move the goal posts and has announced that it will discontinue support for… Read More ›

As we celebrate the 17th birthday of Nerd Vittles this week, it seemed only fitting to introduce a new version of Incredible PBX 2022 which will carry telephony forward until the end of this decade. For history buffs, you may recall that CentOS used to be a perfect clone of Red Hat Enterprise Linux… until it wasn’t when RedHat decided to morph CentOS into a development sandbox known as CentOS Stream. And then along came Gregory Kurtzer, the original developer… Read More ›

Today we’re pleased to introduce an updated OpenSIPS installer for Debian 10 featuring the latest release of OpenSIPS.

Today’s open source SIP server lets you connect users to make and receive free as well as commercial calls worldwide. There’s excellent documentation making it easy to integrate into our existing Incredible PBX platform without hiring a consultant. It’s also straight-forward to secure without providing… Read More ›

This month’s DDoS attacks on SIP infrastructure in the VoIP community should give us all pause to reflect upon what each of us can do to lessen the impact of these attacks in our Internet-centric community. Suffice it to say, DDoS attacks can be directed toward carriers (last week it was Bandwidth.com), VoIP providers (last week it was VoIP.ms), and VoIP servers (that would be your PBX). While they may not like it, carriers and many VoIP providers have the… Read More ›

Since last Thursday when VoIP.ms suffered (and continues to suffer) one of the worst Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attacks in the VoIP era, we’ve been asked a thousand times whether any SIP trunking provider can provide a safe and reliable platform under circumstances similar to the VoIP.ms outage. We obviously cannot vouch for every trunking provider but, based upon our discussions with two of the major carriers that support Incredible PBX, we are confident that either of them could… Read More ›
