Who is also running an Asterisk phone server as a hobby or is planning to do so?

If your FreePBX Pi is behind a firewall (router) and you do not open ports to the public Internet, just make sure you change any default passwords and you will be perfectly fine. The major security problems arise when people open ports to the Internet.

You only really need to open ports on your router/firewall if you have any of the following
  • Improperly configured sip.conf
  • Phones located off site
  • Access to the Web GUI from a remote site
  • more

If yoou do need remote web GUI access, Sometimes it is way better to use a remote desktop on a system (even if on the same Pi) and get web GUI access remotely, that way. It is not as responsive but more secure. When I have ran GUI configurations that were open to the Internet in the past I always disabled the web server unless I really needed it

NO SIP or RTP ports need be open at all if not using off site phones.

FreePBX 15.0.29  after running som updates. I downloaded the raspbx-10-10-2020 from this page: http://www.raspberry-asterisk.org/downloads/

I had to use a keboard and screen to chang the root password, and set the right time zone. Setting time zone in Freepbx alone was not enough to get everything right.

You may call  17772922141149@in.callcentric.com or just 17772922141149 from Callcentric, and get the Norwegian time. (in English)  :)

Yep! 22:33 and 0 Seconds was me!

I have had direct dialing of call centric numbers for many years on my asterisk and rarely used it, until recently when Callcentric deleted my nearly 20 year old account because they did not like me using them to do a "transitional port" of a problematic number port.

Since in.callcentric.com does not work too well from behind a NAT , I set up a SIPBROKER trunk for NAT then I can use that trunk for anything on sipbroker with the proper prefix (*462 to sipbroker) .

Works as expected, I can dial direct to the +1777 Callcentric numbers again.  !

DSK,
It looks like I already allocated you a Boston DID Number , so let me know if you need it redirected. It is currently directed to a localphone account.

Yea the bummer about dialing those call centric LONG numbers is that if you delay on the last three digits you connect to the main account. Sorry about that

Changed the time schedule, so after 22:30 everything goes to the clock ;D No-one leaves messages, so that may be a hint ::)

I never thought about that send late night callers to a talking clock, what a great idea!
