Asterisk and OpenVPN + SIP configuration

These are the instructions to configure OpenVPN + SIP configuration, based on a brainstorming discussion of the Asterisk Users Mailing List.

The server is running on a uClinux appliance, with /dev/net/tun, and OpenVPN is 2.0.9. The clients will be Windows hosts connecting through Ethernet in hotels or public wifi hotspots.

1. Install OpenVPN on Asterisk server. On appliance, there’s only a single binary /bin/openvpn, and configuration files are in /etc/openvpn/.

To be positive SIP/RTP packets go through the OpenVPN tunnel, make sure the firewall in front of the OpenVPN/Asterisk server only has OpenVPN port open (default: UDP 1194).

2. On client, from http://www.openvpn.net, download and install OpenVPN for Windows, which includes Service + GUI

3. If using an appliance with just the openvpn binary, use a workstation to install the OpenVPN package and create certificates + keys: apt-get install openvpn (more…)

chan_dahdi with asterisk 1.4 and new Linux versions

Hi All;

First of all, I am trying to install vicidial and actually vicidial requires asterisk 1.4 and can not work with asterisk 1.8, in addition there is a special version of asterisk 1.4 that is required for vicidial which is asterisk-

The problem that it look like there is a problem with that asterisk 1.4 is not able to buld chan_dahdi if the linux version is new (like fedora core 16), while asterisk 1.8 can work fine with new linux versions.

What is happening with me that when I used fedora core 16, I compiled and installed dahdi 2.6 and then compiled and installed asterisk 1.4 and it did not create chan_dahdi. I tried to select it by running make menuselect and I discover that it is not possible !! By the way: this problem is not existed with old linux versions ..

How I can resolve this problem? How I can let asterisk 1.4 ables to build chan_dahdi with new fedora (or ubuntu) versions?

Again, I do not see this problem when I am using asterisk 1.8 with new linux versions.

Appreciate the kindly help.

dahdi versions before 2.5 compilation error and ubuntu

Hi All;

It look like DAHDI versions that before 2.5 have a problem to be compiled on ubuntu, can someone check below and advise me how to fix this?

The output of the uname -a is:

Linux House 3.0.0-17-server #30-Ubuntu SMP Thu Mar 8 22:15:30 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I am trying to install DAHDI on ubuntu and I faced a problem if I am compiling versions before 2.5, but if I tried 2.5 and newer then it is working fine.

The error is:
