Installing OpenSIPS & Kamailio is....

Bloody infuriating. Never mind getting to the fun stuff of trying to get teams going.

I cant find a good howto that gets me to a point of even trying.

Anyone suggest a good howto, or even a appliance/virtual that's more or less ready to go?

I had better success with Kamailio but I still don't think I really got to a point it was good to go.

I am sorry to hear that @TimGuyUK but I am also a bit happy for I thought I was the only one having problems with it. I figured I was just stupid and could not get it - which is still possible. I got fed up at some point but I recently found this tutorial. I meant to give it a go but I haven't had the time.

BTW, I feel the same way everytime I need to do something new on freeswitch.

Good luck.

Follow this guide for the install, it will get your started. I've followed it and it works perfectly:

Also you might want to install RTPengine first before installing opensips, here is a good link for that:

When you have all that installed you can start following the Teams OpenSIPS integration guide.

@ewdpb Your defo not stupid im sure, I can normally bludgeon my way through install guides, maybe even use a couple and go back and forth but the OpenSIPS & Kamailio guides are a nightmare.

At least OpenSIPS has a good book and there are some basic training videos on udemy, Kamailio is harder to get started but they are both so similar if you can use one you can figure the other one out.

For me RTPengine had some more features and was easier to find support for, it seemed as though most in the OpenSIPS community use RTPengine. I was using OpenSIPS on AWS and RTPproxy didnt have the features to set an external IP so I needed to use RTPengine, you may not use it if you have direct internet access.

I can help you get to the same point I was at so keep posting your questions here and hopefully you can get it fully functional and post the full config for the rest of us.

I used that powerpbx guide as well for OpenSIPS, however I went with Debian 9 b/c of issues I ran into with OpenSSL. I need to go back and see if Debian 10 will work with my updated config, but I know that 9 works.

I have Team working with OpenSIPS & Fusion and didn't need RTPengine. It depends on your environment. I have public IP's for both OpenSIPS and FreeSWITCH.
