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.

As we have said, since it is not a LTS version, if you deploy miniSIPServer in a business environment, it is better to keep your Ubuntu stay on version 16.04 or 14.04.

As you know, it is better to stay with previous Ubuntu LTS versions, such as 12.04 and 14.04.

Ubuntu 15.04

Ubuntu 15.04

It is glad to hear that Ubuntu 15.04 is released today. We download the latest 64bit version and install it in virtualbox to test our new miniSIPServer V20 version.

We are very glad that it is no problem to run miniSIPServer V20 on this Ubuntu version. So you can enjoy it yourself if you want to try latest Ubuntu 15.04.

Of course, since 15.04 is not LTS version and is not recommanded to most customers, we suggest you to stay with LTS Ubuntu, such as 12.04 or 14.04.

GHOST bug

GHOST bug

This is a new bug reported in Linux platform. It is caused by invoking ‘gethostbyname’ function. We checkĀ our codes and find it is very lucky that we didn’t use this function.

So it is no problem to keep your MSS running in Linux platform. Of course, it is better to upgrade your Linux system since other applications might have this bug.

ubuntu 14.10

ubuntu 14.10

Ubuntu 14.10 is released today. We download and install it in our lab and make some test with miniSIPServer V17 (for linux).

It is no problem to run miniSIPServer on the latest Ubuntu system. Please enjoy it!

miniSIPServer can run on Ubuntu/Kubuntu 14.04

miniSIPServer can run on Ubuntu/Kubuntu 14.04

Today we download the latest Ubuntu 14.04 and install it in our lab to make some test. It is no problem to run miniSIPServer on this system. And it seem V14.04 is betterĀ than its previous version.

So if you are interesting in Linux or Ubuntu, you can try this version.

miniSIPServer & Ubuntu/Kubuntu 13.10

miniSIPServer & Ubuntu/Kubuntu 13.10

The latest Ubuntu/Kubuntu V13.10 is released. We download and install it immediately in our lab. It is no problem to run miniSIPServer on these systems. But according to our experience and test result, we dont suggest customers to upgrade systems to V13.10 because it is not stable enough for business deployment now.

So if you are running miniSIPServer on Ubuntu/Kubuntu, it is better to keep your current versions and wait for next LTS version V14.04.

How to run miniSIPServer on Ubuntu?

How to run miniSIPServer on Ubuntu?

If you are using Ubuntu (desktop), it is very easy to run MSS. Just download .deb file from our website and double click such .deb file to install it. Then you can find MSS icon in ‘internet’ or ‘network’ menu group and run it to start MSS.

If you are using Ubuntu (server), something is different. You need do more steps to install and run MSS. We describe details below.

First, you must download .deb file from our website, for example ‘mss_v13_u20.deb’. Then, you can run following command:

sudo dpkg -i mss_v13_u20.deb

At this step, Ubuntu will prompt error that some dependencies must be installed. Don’t warry, please continue following command:

sudo apt-get -f install

Then Ubuntu will try to get and install all necessary dependencies from Ubuntu software center.

In Ubuntu server, you cannot run MSS GUI since X windows is not started. You can run MSS CLI version whose file name is ‘msscli’ and can be found in directory ‘/opt/sipserver’.

So it is very easy to start MSS now:

/opt/sipserver/msscli

To visit and manage MSS system, you need visit its web system whose TCP port is 8080 by default. Please refer to following document:

http://www.myvoipapp.com/docs/mss_services/web_management/index.html

V4.0 is coming ……

V4.0 is coming ……

MSS V4.0 is coming….It is a very important version for our customers. The most important feature of this version is to support Linux!

Yes! It is true! MSS V4.0 can run on Ubuntu/Kubuntu system without WINE now! MSS will be a cross-platform SIP|VOIP server.

The development work is finished and we are still working on system test. We hope to release this version in the end of this month or the beginning of next month.
