Stun Server

We have been running a windows stun server for 5 years now and I would like
to change to either a linux of freebsd based unit to phase out the old XP
box in our datacenter. What should I look at that would be a good
replacement. The windows box has worked but the hardware is at end of life
and I want to move it to a vm and I don’t want Windows.

Any advise is apperciated.



Sun CEO explicitly endorsed Java’s use in Android

Hello people,

I would like to share this article as I found it of really high relevance to everyone that would like to use Java as a programming language:

“If you believe Oracle’s patent lawsuits against Google for its use of Java in Android, Google has stolen not just patented ideas but directly copied Java code. In short, Google is a red-handed thief and should pay Oracle over a billion in damages. There’s just one little problem with this portrayal of Google as an intellectual property (IP) bandit. When Android first came out, Sun CEO Jonathan Schwartz, then Java’s owner, greeted the news with “heartfelt congratulations.” Whoops.

CNET News: Oracle scrubs site of embarrassing Java blog

While Schwartz’s blog post has since been erased by Oracle, Groklaw found the page and has republished it In his note, Schwartz not only congratulates Google “on the announcement of their new Java/Linux phone platform, Android.,” he goes on to announce that “Sun is the first platform software company to commit to a complete developer environment around the platform, as we throw Sun’s NetBeans developers platform for mobile devices behind the effort. We’ve obviously done a ton of work to support developers on all Java based platforms, and we’re pleased to add Google’s Android to the list.”

So, there you go, Java’s owner at the time not only welcomed Android’s use of Java, they were actively supporting it with development tools. So, what do you have to say now Oracle?”

AMI action PlayDTMF and SIP:INFO

Hello List,

Is it possible to send SIP:INFO to an active SIP channel using AMI action PlayDTMF?
I tried to send a DTMF digit 1 to my SIP client, but I did not get any SIP:INFO on wireshark trace.
In my sip.conf file dtmfmode=info.
