SysAdminMan FusionPBX password change and IP whitelist

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 –

# admin-passwd
New password:
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) –

# whitelist.sh

Usage : whitelist.sh IPADDRESS (eg - whitelist.sh 192.168.1.1)

FusionPBX getting started : The Freeswitch log viewer

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 –

FusionPBX getting started : Receiving an inbound call

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 –
