Offline instant messages

Offline instant messages

Today we upgrade cloud-MSS to new version to support offline-IM feature.

In a unified communication environment, it is very common for users to send or receive offline instant messages, specially some customers use cloud-MSS as their internal communication tool.

With this new version, cloud-MSS can support IM as following:

(1) If called party is online, Cloud-MSS will send IM to it immediately.

(2) If called party is offline, Cloud-MSS will save its offline IM. Clou-MSS can store no more than total 10 offline-IM for each local user. Each IM should be less than 200 characters.

(3) If called party is back to online again, Cloud-MSS will send its offline-IM to it automatically.

You don’t need configure anything for this feature, it is so easy to setup a UC system for your business now. Why not take a try? 🙂

Run as windows service

Run as windows service

Some customers often ask us how to run miniSipServer as windows service?

It is a interesting topic. After research, we think it is very reasonable to run miniSipServer as windows service. For example, the server could be reboot for some exception, so administrator hope miniSipServer can auto-start together and GUI is unnecessary once the IP-PBX has been configured successfully.

With the release of version 6.2.1, our customers can run miniSipServer as windows service now.

After install new miniSipServer, we can find a new exe file whose name is ‘msscli.exe’. It is a command line application without GUI interface. In fact, ‘msscli.exe’ has the same SIP server core with ‘mss.exe’ which is the GUI version.

In another way, we need ‘sc.exe’ command to create windows service. ‘sc.exe’ is widows own application.

We assume that miniSipServer is installed in directory ‘d:\myvoipapp\minisipserver’, then we can begin now:

To create a windows service:

sc create minisipserver binPath= "d:\myvoipapp\miniSipServer\msscli.exe" start= auto depend= tcpip

Note: the option name includes equal sign and blank space sign. We can use miniSipServer web management system to administrate MSS. Please refer to following document for details.

BTW, If run as windows service, the web management system will always start-up even without administrator password.

To start miniSipServer service:

sc start minisipserver

To stop miniSipServer service:

sc stop minisipserver

To delete miniSipServer service:

sc delete minisipserver

We need mention that you MUST stop and delete miniSipServer service firstly if you want to install or upgrade a new miniSipServer version.

The most easy-to-use IP-PBX for Ubuntu/Linux

If you have tried miniSipServer on Windows platform, you can find it is so easy to configure or manage a IP-PBX because miniSipServer provides a perfect GUI interface.

You can find it is very easy to do that on Ubuntu/Linux because miniSipServer can support GUI interface on Ubuntu/Linux now!  WINE is unnecessary now!

Please visit our download page to download miniSipServer .deb packages according to your requirements:

After you download .deb file from our website, please click (or double-click) it to install MSS. No more actions! So easy, so funny.

After you finish your install, you will find miniSipServer at “Applications / Internet” group.

Following figure is a screenshot of MSS running on Kubuntu:

In another way, if you just want to run a command line sip server, you can also go to directory “/opt/sipserver” and find “msscli” which is a command-line miniSipServer and has the same core with GUI-miniSipServer.  You can manage and configure it through web interface.
