ViciBox v.9.0 Beta

Postby Kumba » Sat Jul 27, 2019 11:05 am

Download Link: http://download.vicidial.com/iso/vicibo ... -beta1.iso

So I finally managed to get the firewall thing figured out which means I have a functional beta.

The installer has changed due to the old one being EOL'd by OpenSuSE.

So basic install instructions:

1) Boot from ISO
2) Say Yes or No to installing on the first hard drive it finds
3) Reboot
4) Login as root with 'vicidial' as password


ViciBox Firewall is now a little different and hopefully easier. You don't have to make/create files to enable or disable things anymore. The Black List, White List, and Dynamic List are all active. The Black List takes precedence now so regardless of what the white and dynamic lists have, an IP that matches the black list will be blocked. To use something like the white or dynamic list all you do is go into 'yast firewall' and remove the HTTP/HTTPS/SIP services from the allowed list. Then you just add --white or --dynamic or whatever flag you prefer to the crontab entry for VB-firewall.pl.

Dynamic portal has been reworked as well.

Thanks! Is the firewall the only main change?

Different OS, different Phase 1 install procedures, different firewall setup. Most of the stuff in Phase 2 is pretty much the same.

I just installed it and noticed the yast firewall looks completely different. In which menu can i add my own IP for SSH access?

Also:

vicibox-certbot
Certbot config not found at /etc/certbot//cli.ini

The beta is pretty much what ViciBox v.9.0 is going to be short of any bugs I find or am told about in the next week. After that it'll be released.

I like how everyone who is asking for PHP7 can't even be bothered to download and install the beta.


Because if they did they'd know it already has PHP7 in it. :)

V.9.0 will likely be released this week. I'm just going through verifying all the different features work as expected one second last time. So far already fixed a few bugs in the new dynamic portal.

If anyone wants to beta-drive the new install documentation along with the beta ISO, you can download it here: http://download.vicidial.com/iso/vicibo ... nstall.odt

I'm planning to add a section of the ViciBox Firewall and the Dynamic Portal. You'll be happy to know it's been simplified now.

Also looks like Asterisk 11 might finally die with ViciBox v.8.1. It won't compile under OpenSuSE 15.1. No clue why the GCC compiler just dies with no warning.

Wow. I just put that into a folder next to ViciBox_v4-Install.pdf from 8/11/2013. I feel old.

Thanks. Looks great. Busy testing and hope to use this 9.0 for a new 300 seater soon.

I'm taking a further look at v9.0. Please could you help me understand whether we still need to plan to include hardware timing devices for this version?

I note that the Install Manual still says that it includes Amfletec VoiceSync v.1.3.8, but was wondering if MeetMe is still used in this build. If only ConfBridge then can we skip a timing device?
If we DO need a timer, is it an option to use the Sangoma USB Voice Sync Tool (we don't have a local supplier of Amfletec)?

And thinking bigger picture, if we don't need timing hardware, can we run ViciBox 9.0 on a VM now?

So, three questions that I'd value some help with.

Thanks

We still use Meetme for the conferencing engine, you will need a timer although there is a built-in software timer if you do not have an Amfeltec timer. Most of our premise clients do not use a hardware timer. We do not recommend the USB timer due to reliability issues with USB that we have encountered, we stopped using them entirely years ago.

PoundTeam has NO clients using hardware timers and never has. We have some very large installations and all other sizes. Timing has never been an issue.

roger.milligan wrote:And thinking bigger picture, if we don't need timing hardware, can we run ViciBox 9.0 on a VM now?

Nope. Unrelated. The virtualized system still always misses clock ticks and melts down under load. Virtual is ONLY useful if you want to allow several VERY underutilized systems to share hardware (ie: 1 or 2 agents per Vicidial server, and never approaching "heavy" usage in total). Virtual means you'll never likely even achieve 50% usage of the physical server, but if you have several clients only using 5% of the physical server's capacity ... putting them in a single server is very efficient. But beware more than 2 agents (or 5 calls) per virtual server. Don't promise anything ... TEST with mutliple servers in use on the host before assuming anything will work.

The timer gets you an extra 10% of capacity on average on bare hardware. In virtualization it doesn't make a difference really.
