SysAdminMan FusionPBX passwords
SysAdminMan’s FusionPBX servers have 2 levels of security. The first is a master web server username/password. The second is the built FusionPBX username/password.
The second username/password can be changed in the FusionPBX web GUI by selecting Accounts / User Manager.
The first web server password can only be changed via the SSH command line.
To do this log in to your server as ‘root’ using something like Putty
Then run the following command –
Re-type new password:
SysAdminMan FusionPBX IP whitelist
Each server also runs fail2ban and denyhosts. These provide security against hackers but it’s also possible to accidentally block your own IP address. To whitelist your IP address you can run the following command via SSH (see above) –
Usage : whitelist.sh IPADDRESS (eg - whitelist.sh 192.168.1.1)
Setting up a conference room in FusionPBX is very straight forward, and there is a very nice admin page to enable you to manage a conference that is in progress.
To add a conference select Apps / Conferences –
When calls don’t work as expected in FusionPBX the first place to turn are the Freeswitch logs. You can view these through the web interface, and they are nicely colour coded.
Let’s say when I was setting up my Inbound Route I wasn’t sure how the call was being presented. Instead of putting 7067652072 as the Destination Number in the Inbound Route I entered it with the country code 1 in front, like this – 17067652072. Now when I call the number I just hear silence, so lets see what’s going on.
First select Status / Log Viewer from the menu –
In this part we are going to set up inbound calling. I have purchased a number from voip.ms that is an Athens, Georgia number – based in the US. However, this number could be anywhere that voip.ms provides numbers. It does not have to be in the same country as your server. The number should be routed to voip.ms SIP account that you are using with your FusionPBX server (this will send the call to the registered server). The telephone number I have is 1-706-765-2072.
This assumes we have done the previous part and set up a trunk to voip.ms and have the call forwarded to the registered server.
First click on Dialplan / Inbound Routes –
In this example we are going to use voip.ms as our outbound call provider. They have reasonable rates and a SIP server located in the UK.
We will need the voip.ms SIP username and password details that we are going to use, and also the voip.ms proxy server we will use.
First select the Accounts / Gateway menu option –
This is the first part in a series of posts showing how to get started with FusionPBX. They will run through setting up an extension and also making and receiving external calls.
In this post we’ll use a fresh install of FusionPBX and X-Lite 4.1 on Windows as a softphone.
First log in to your new FusionPBX install –
