New LTS V32

New LTS V32

Finally, we release the latest LTS version V32. It has been a long time since we released the first V32 for test. During these months, we have updated web UI, GUI, SIP core and lots of items. This is a very exciting version and we will provide FIVE years tech support for it.

In another way, the latest stable version is V33 now. From this version, Linux (X86-32) systems will not be supported. New features and services will be developed on this version.

Hope you can enjoy these versions!

External lines configurations

External lines configurations

We often configure miniSIPServer to connect VoIP carriers’ network with external lines. There are lots of VoIP carriers and someone always asks us how to configure external line.

In our step by step document, we give a demo to configure MSS to work with “call centric”. You can refer to this document for more details about VoIP networks and external lines. In another way, we give some more examples in chapter “External lines” of F.A.Q document. Please refer to these documents if you are interesting in it and hope they can be helpful to you.

miniSIPServer on Ubuntu 18.04

miniSIPServer on Ubuntu 18.04

It is perfect to run miniSIPServer on Ubuntu 18.04 which is the latest LTS version.

We have tested some scenarios with miniSIPServer on Ubuntu 18.04, everything is OK. We strongly suggest you to upgrade your Ubuntu system to this version.

miniSIPServer for Raspbian (Stretch)

miniSIPServer for Raspbian (Stretch)

We rebuilt miniSIPServer V32 for the latest Raspbian.

That means only Raspbian (Stretch) will be supported now. If  you are still running MSS on Jessie or older systems, please upgrade Pi before you prepare to upgrade MSS.

If you are still working on Pi1 or Pi2 and don’t want to upgrade Pi, you can still try MSS previous versions. For example:

V31 https://www.myvoipapp.com/download/backup/mss_v31/pi/mss_v31_pi_u20.deb

V30 https://www.myvoipapp.com/download/backup/mss_v30/pi/mss_v30_pi_u20.deb

Relay media streams of SIP trunk outgoing calls

Relay media streams of SIP trunk outgoing calls

In some VoIP scenarios, we need configure “SIP trunk” to work with VoIP providers or gateways. When processing media streams, we hope (1) local users/phones should process their streams by themselves without MSS, and (2) MSS should help to relay media stream for all outgoing calls to peer SIP servers or gateways.

To fit these requirements, we update MSS V32 to be able to configure “relay media” item in “SIP trunk”. Please refer to following figure for more details.

Configure "relay media stream" item in SIP trunk outgoing call
Configure “relay media stream” item in SIP trunk outgoing call

By the way, MSS can only relay audio streams at this time, so video streams will be lost if you want to MSS to relay streams.

New web

New web

We have updated our website with the latest bootstrap v4. Please take a look at it.

Store your own audio files

Store your own audio files

miniSIPServer can support customers’ own audio files to replace default files. With previous MSS, customers have to backup and restore these files once they want to upgrade MSS.

This is a little trouble. With the new V32, we can resolve it now.

When MSS starts up, it will create a sub directory ‘cust_ann’ in ‘mss_ann’ directory, now all your own audio files can be stored in this directory. When MSS is uninstalled or upgraded, this directory and its files will not be deleted or replaced by default files, and MSS can get audio files from this directory directly when it starts up.

In windows system, it could be “d:/myvoipapp/minisipserver/mss_ann/cust_ann” directory by default. In Linux system, it could be “/opt/sipserver/mss_ann/cust_ann/”.

Please refer to our online document for more details about how to record own audio files.

Critical Maintenance for CPU Vulnerabilities

Critical Maintenance for CPU Vulnerabilities

Maintenance is required for all virtual servers in our cloud system. We will reboot all our servers in 2018-01-19 7:00:00 AM UTC. You can prepare your VoIP networks for this mantenance.

This action affects the underlying infrastructure that your virtual server resides on and will not affect the data stored within your virtual server

During the maintenance window, your virtual server will be cleanly shut down and will be unavailable while we perform the updates. A two-hour window is allocated, however the actual downtime should be much less.

We regret the short notice and the downtime required for this maintenance. However, due to the severity of these vulnerabilities, we have no choice but to take swift and immediate action to ensure the safety and security of our customers. For these reasons, we must adhere to a strict timetable, and will not be able to reschedule or defer this maintenance.

If you experience any issues following the maintenance, please feel free to reach out to us and we will be happy to assist.

Connect to sonetel

Connect to sonetel

“sonetel.com” is a VoIP carrier who can provide local phone numbers. We can add “external line” to work with their servers. According to its description, there are some special items need to be cared:

  • Sonetel uses email address as SIP account and
  • It deploys SBC or proxy to process all incoming SIP messages.

Here we give a simplel example to describe how to work with Sonetel. We assume the SIP account is “abc@gmail.com”.

In MSS, please cilck menu “data > external line” to add a record.

Configure Sonetel lline
Configure Sonetel lline

In “Basic” tab, the line type should be “Connect to peer VoIP server”, the Account should be “abc” and the Domain is “gmail.com”.

By the way, the Password is the password you sign up in Sonetel, not your own email password.

Since all SIP messages are processed by sonetel SBC/Proxy, we need configure “outbound” information in the “Outgoing call” tab. Please refer to following figure.

Sonetel SBC
Sonetel SBC

The Sonetel proxy address is “sip.sonetel.com” which should be described in the email sent by sonetel.

V32 (stable) is pre-released

V32 (stable) is pre-released

V32 (stable) has been tested in most scenarios and we are proud to release it today!

As you can see, this V32 is in stable branch. When we finish all test scenarios and get enough response messages from customers, it will be upgraded to LTS branch and the new LTS will be released finally in the begin of next year.
