In this post, I am going to talk about how to configure FreeSWITCH in a high availability active-passive schema. The active-passive approach will share a floating IP between your VoIP switches and when one gets off-line, the passive one will take control over the IP and it will get the load. This article will assume the following:

Everyone knows that CentOS only takes care of some specific core packages. All others, if you want to continue using RPM's, must be used from alternative Repositories. There are many alternatives:

  • EPEL: you will find here many useful packages. Packages get updates for critical bugs.
  • Remi: you will find here backports for most useful packages. 
  • OKay: you will find here some specific packages for servers, audio, and video.

I especially do contributions to the OKay repository. So, if you want to use OKay follow these steps:

  • Install the EPEL repository, you may try typing yum install epel-release. I think at least Centos 7 has it out of the box.
  • Install the okay-release RPM. Type:
    • Centos 6 on 32 bits: rpm -ivh http://repo.okay.com.mx/centos/6/i386/release/okay-release-1-1.noarch.rpm?
    • Centos 6 on 64 bits: rpm -ivh http://repo.okay.com.mx/centos/6/x86_64/release/okay-release-1-1.noarch.rpm?
    • Centos 7 on 64 bits: rpm -ivh http://repo.okay.com.mx/centos/7/x86_64/release/okay-release-1-1.noarch.rpm?

I will post later as I publish some updates or packages.

At some point, after running your PBX for a while, you will get some exposition. If you go to your PBX console and watch your logs, you may notice that sometimes someone tries to register or to send an INVITE signal. These tries are usually done by scripts looking for misconfigured SIP servers.
