A few more things to add to my desired SOHO FreeSWITCH configuration

Since my last post I’ve spoken some more on #freeswitch and also freeswitch-users and have some ideas of how to implement some of the things I wanted to do on my SOHO PBX setup.

Additionally I’ve also added several other tasks which I think are important. So here is where you can find the updated post: http://blog.wl0.org/voip-configuration-requirement-for-freeswitch/.

I’ve not fully understood the configuration in FreeSWITCH using 2 different ports for internal and external traffic, especially as most SIP systems just use the default SIP port 5060. As such I want to configure FreeSWITCH so it works on a single port
rather than using the 2 ports the default configuration uses.

Since the requirements list has become quite long I want to try to document how I get to the final setup in the hope it will allow someone else to do this more quickly than it’s taken me.

If you see a configuration / description of FreeSWITCH behaviour which is wrong, or a better way to implement these features please let me know. This is a learning process for me.

    since 5060 is defacto standard for a SIP port it is also very easy for unwanted souls to try to hack your system. brute force attack on extensions are very common so giving you the option of using another port on your external interface which many times may only be to communicate with your phone number provider increases security.
