Today I have published in OKay's RPM repository RPMs for the Nagios SIP plugin 1.3. This is a very simple Nagios plugin that connects using the SIP protocol and does few validations reviewing that the answer is correct.

RPM's are available for CentOS 6 and 7. You can find it doing a yum search nagios-plugins-sip

Enjoy!

Since two days ago, I have been working with a new customer. He has reported in the FusionPBX Forums that dial code *72 (call forward) is not working. As per his explanation, dialing *72 forwards you to a little IVR that reports the forward was successfully set. But when you call to the extension with the call forward enabled, it was not forwarding, instead, the voice mail answers.

Today I have published in OKay's RPM repository RPMs for FreeSWITCH 1.6.16. FreeSWITCH is a complete VoIP switch that works on many platforms, including Centos 6 and Centos 7. This is one of the biggest packages I have ever done; there are more than 1800 hours of work behind to make it work (mainly because of the CentOS 6 support). When updating, you will notice it will download many libraries, most part of them not available anywhere.

The big difference on my RPM's is there are more sub-packages, for example, you can install only freeswitch-cli if you only need fs_cli command; Centos 6 RPMS for 32 and 64 bits are available with video support; I have imported a patch that fixes mod_nibblebill, in some situations leg b won't hang up and it will produce money losses. I have been updating some other dependencies such as VLC, OpenH264 and MPG123 with latest stable if you were using my RPM's you will notice more updates as well. Since the RPM of the 1.6.15 release, I have published the sounds for en-ca-june, the Canadian English language. If you live in Canada and you have done English exams such as CELPIP, you will notice those little differences.

Because libyuv is now part of the core, these RPMs are compiled with video support. Yes, you read it well, both Centos 6 and 7 with video support.

As many of you may know, I am running a funding to convert the Billing for FusionPBX from commercial license to an open-source one. Today I am sending the first donation fo many to the FusionPBX project. At the time of writing this article, the funding has reached 1650 CAD, taking out the 8% of FundMe commission it is a grand total of 1518.15 CAD. Here there are the screen shots showing that the promise it's been honored.

Donation to FusionPBX Project

By mistake, when I was writing this, I found I sent USD instead of CAD (funding is done in CAD). So I sent 151.81 USD, equivalent to 203.26 CAD. I just want to keep all clear in this funding.

By the way, Billing for FusionPBX 1.1.0 is about to be released. There are new capabilities such as pseudo enum support, many bug fixes and better compatibility with FusionPBX 4.2.

Thanks!
