Introducing Incredible PBX 2022 for Rocky 8 Linux

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 ›

Santa’s Surprise: Free Faxing Returns for FreePBX 16

Santa’s Surprise: Free Faxing Returns for FreePBX 16

Saturday, December 25, 2021

As most of you know, free faxing with HylaFax, AvantFax, and IAXmodem has been an integral component of Incredible PBX since its introduction. That changed with the Incredible PBX 2022 Beta release last week because of the FreePBX® 16 prerequisite of a PHP 7.4 platform. That prompted us to become a student again and explore the possibility of deploying two simultaneously available versions of PHP. AvantFax is the web GUI for sending and receiving free faxes. It is no longer… Read More ›

For those with a pioneering spirit, we are pleased to introduce the Incredible PBX 2022 Beta 1 upgrade for the Incredible PBX 2021 Debian 10 platform. This upgrade features the latest release of Asterisk® 19 and includes all FreePBX® 16 GPL modules. It should not (yet) be used in a production environment, but it’s fun to experiment especially when it’s the only implementation of FreePBX currently available for Asterisk 19. Prerequisites. To get started you’ll need an Incredible PBX 2021… Read More ›

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 ›

It’s been several years since we introduced our Call By Name script for Asterisk® using IBM’s Voice Recognition software. During that time, IBM has shifted gears on their pricing plans and their API methodology several times. So today we want to provide a new soup-to-nuts tutorial for those using Incredible PBX on the Raspberry Pi and Incredible PBX 2021 on both the Debian 10 and Ubuntu 20.04 platforms. If you have previously used IBM voice recognition (STT), be aware that… Read More ›

Today we’re pleased to introduce an updated OpenSIPS installer for Debian 10 featuring the latest release of OpenSIPS. Our previous tutorial with Debian 8 is now obsolete, an all-too-frequent occurrence in the open source world. 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 ›

Some Further Thoughts & Solutions Regarding DDoS Attacks

Some Further Thoughts & Solutions Regarding DDoS Attacks

Monday, September 27, 2021

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 ›

Is SIP Trunking Safe & Reliable in the DDoS World?

Is SIP Trunking Safe & Reliable in the DDoS World?

Monday, September 20, 2021

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 ›
