Run miniSIPServer on Linux


Linux is a great system, we all love it. At this time, miniSIPServer can support both 32 bits and 64 bits Linux system. It is no problem to run miniSIPServer on Linux server or desktop.


As we know, there are so many linux distributions, such as Debin, Ubuntu, CentOS, SuSE, Fedora, Arch, and so on. It is a good thing to have lots of choice, and it is a confused thing too. Since we don't have enough resources to research and test so many distributions, we focus our work on following distributions:

  • Debian 7
  • Debian 8
  • Debian 9
  • Ubuntu 12.04
  • Ubuntu 14.04
  • Ubuntu 16.04
  • Ubuntu 18.04

If you are working on above system, we can confirm it is no problem to deploy miniSIPServer. In fact, you can see all our install packages are '.deb' format.

We are not sure of other versions, such as Debian 6, and we are not sure of other linux distributions, such as CentOS.


Before install miniSIPServer, please make sure that both Linux system and network are ok now.
