[ANN] A bugfixed YATE port is available for FreeBSD

Discussion in 'VOIP' started by Balwinder S bsd Dheeman, Mar 5, 2007.

  1. Greetings!

    Yate is a telephony engine aimed at creating a telephony softswitch that
    performs well enough to deal with the PBX (Private Branch eXchange)
    requirements, ACD (Advanced Call Distribution) and also flexible enough
    for complex VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) Gateway, Conferencing
    and IVR (Interactive Voice Response) solutions. Currently, all popular
    packet voice and, or software protocols SIP, H.323, IAX2 and Jingle as
    well as traditional TDM hardware including many a T1, E1, ISDN PRI and
    ISDN BRI are supported over various signaling protocols.

    An updated yate port is available for FreeBSD, I don't have enough of
    the resources to test; it however, is possible to build the same on
    other *BSD variants too.

    To install/upgrade the ports download:
    and http://cto.homelinux.net/pub/FreeBSD/ports/spandsp-devel.tar.bz2

    To extract:
    # tar jxvf <path/to>/yate.tar.bz2 -C /usr/ports/net
    # tar jxvf <path/to>/spandsp-devel.tar.bz2 -C /usr/ports/comms
    # cd /usr/ports/net/yate
    # make install


    # make package

    NOTE: Before running csup and, or cvsup do create and, or update a
    refuse file:

    # cat <<EOT >>/usr/ports/refuse

    A yate ports collection for FreeBSD created by Alex Rodin 'alex DOT
    rodin AT gmail DOT com' is also/already available in the yate mailiing
    list archive.

    Kindly note, that this one is different and also includes, though small,
    but the following enhancements over the latest CVS head:

    * On Unix systems yate daemon tries to run under normal uid and, or gid.
    * Loading and, or initialization messages moved to highest debug level.
    * Support for aliases is added to module regfile; check status now
    shows aliases as 'alias->number'.
    * The status now shows ip:port for remote connections in the rmanager
    * Updated and, or upto-date manpages, README and INSTALL files.

    I'm not that much expert in SIP, H.323, IAX2 and other such protocols
    and, or PSTN technology, so I request you to please post your relevant
    and, or technical questions to Null Team only; the creators of yate at

  2. Hi,

    Mr Aivis Olsteins reported a minor problem in building Yate on FreeBSD,
    this has been corrected please read
    http://cto.homelinux.net/~bsd/?p=9#comments for further details.

    I have not submitted these ports to FreeBSD collection, 'cause that
    system exposes e-mails openly and encourages spammers implicitly, but I
    shall feel obliged if the FreeBSD and, or other BSD variant's ports
    management team merges this with their official ports collection.
