V19 is updated to support some new features in external line. We add a new item “maximum simultaneous outgoing call” in “outgoing call” tab.

This new item can limit how many concurrent calls can be processed by the external line. It it is configured to be zero, that mean the line cannot make any outgoing call.

That also means previous item “only permit incoming call” is unnecessary, so we cut this item together.

Reports in MSS

Reports in MSS

Most SIP or PBX devices may have some reports to help administrator to check system’s status.

MSS has some reports too. Please click menu “Reports” to show them. MSS has two reports at this time:

(1) Basic call report

(2) Local user report

Both these reports are generated per hour. If there is not any value for each item, then the report will not be generated.

“Local user report” is simple. It only calculates how many local users are online per hour.

“Basic call report” is used to calculate how many calls MSS has been processed in one hour. There are some important items, such as “attempt”, “alert”, and “answer” and so on. It includes total durations and it can help administrator to understand how many calls have been answered and the avarage duration in one hour. If there are too many calls to make MSS heavy work-load, administrator can decide to upgrade MSS.

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:


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