The latest Ubuntu 16.04 was released yesterday. Since it is a LTS version, we downloaded it as soon as possible and made some test in lab.
Some libraries have been upgraded or changed in this version, we need update MSS to fit these modifications. If you want to try miniSIPServer on Ubuntu 16.04, or you want to upgrade your previous Ubuntu to 16.04, you need install latest miniSIPServer V27 (build 20160422) .
Please refer to attached figure, we run the latest MSS on Ubuntu 16.04.
Today we upgrade miniSIPServer V14 to support 64 bits Debian and Ubuntu. That’s a great news for some of our customers.
As we know, in some networks, customers have deployed 64 bits Debian or Ubuntu servers. So when we want to install previous 32 bits miniSIPServer in their servers, it is required to install some additional 32 bits libraries. Of course, it is no problem to do that, but some customers often think it could be unstable for their servers.
So we decide to migrate MSS to 64 bits to fit this requirement. Now it is unnecessary to care about 32 bits problem.
For customers who are using 64 bits Windows, it is unnecessary to care about 32 bits problem. Windows can process them in perfect way, so please keep current versions.
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.
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:
