In the company I work there is a PBX with Asterisk and due to the limited amount of hardware phones available I decided to use a softphone, in this case Linphone. Next I explain the steps to install and set up Linphone with a SIP server:
Installing on Debian
On Debian you must install the following package:
aptitude install linphone
On spin-off distros like Ubuntu or Mint you must check the package’s name.
Installing on Red Hat
In the case you are using Red Hat then you must install Linphone this way:
yum install linphone
Again, on spin-off distros like Fedora or CentOS you must check the package’s name. You also must the repository where to find Linphone (keep in mind Red Hat is server oriented)
In order to set up Linphone you must launch the application and go to Options > Preferences > Manage SIP Accounts. A windows like the following should appear:
You must add an account in the Proxy accounts section, by clicking on the Add button , then the following window will show up:
Here you just specified the user account or SIP identity and the proxy SIP. For the identity follow the format user@domain. In the example 5256 is the user (extension) and y 10.0.3.10 is the SIP server. On the other hand, the proxy IP address is 10.0.3.10.
Once the changes have been made just click Ok on this window and Done on the previous one.
Now the application should authenticate to the server, asking the user and password as shown next:
After the account is provided, in My Current Identity on the main window that information should be shown:
Making a call
To make a call just put the extension number in the shown box and push the green button:
Link to the video http://blip.tv/lgallardo/lvm-on-fedora-red-hat-5908557
On this video you can see the installing process using a LVM on Fedora (it’s also valid on Red Hat). As a side note, the directory that must be outside the LVM is /boot, altoogh I said it was the file system’s root directory /, which also includes /boot.
If you don’t understand some of the LVM terms, you can check out the previous article about basic LVM concepts and some commands to manage a LVM by hand.
If for any reason you need to install Fedora on a virtual machine using VirtualBox and you want to take advantage of the extras features provided by the Guest Additions (network and graphic drivers, for enabling full screen and mouse integration options) you can follow these steps::
- In the virtual machine with Fedora install the needed files for compiling the Guest Additions:
yum install kernel-headers kernel-devel yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
This will take long because it downloads a lot of packages.
- Select Guest Additions on VirtualBox menu.
On the virtual machine a link will be created to mount the CDROM. Right click on it and choose Mount. Once mounted go to:
There run the binary file for Linux installation:
Once it had finished the Guest Additions will be installed on Fedora!
Installing on Red Hat
The above steps are valid for Red Hat, you only need to set a repository from where packages and group of packages will be downloaded.
