Looking for an SBC solution? Vyatta + Freeswitch...

Started working on getting a proper SBC for the home network. I hacked on Vyatta with OpenSBC this morning with less than stellar compilation results. I may revisit that.

I did get a good start on Vyatta (beta of Ver 5... Debiab) with Freeswitch installed though. Here are my installation notes so far:

Vyatta VC5 Beta ISO download is at:

Vyatta (ver 5 beta) with FreeSwitch Installation

Install Vyatta

Boot from ISO. Press ENTER.

At login, username 'root', password 'vyatta'.

Enter 'install-system'

Configure as needed...

Get items required for building Freeswitch

Login to Firewall as user 'vyatta'

vyatta@FW1:~$ cd /etc/apt
vyatta@FW1:/etc/apt$ su
Password: (enter root password)
vyatta@FW1:/etc/apt$ nano -w sources.list

Add line: "deb lenny main contrib non-free"

Ctrl-X and Y to overwrite

FW1:/etc/apt# apt-get update

FW1:/etc/apt# apt-get install -y mc autoconf automake libtool build-essential libxml2 libxml2-dev libtiff4 libtiff4-dev php5 php5-cli php5-mysql php5 php5-cli php5-mysql php5-gd mysql-server libmysqlclient15-dev php-pear php-db curl sox apache2 libssl-dev libncurses5-dev bison libaudiofile-dev subversion libnewt-dev libcurl3-dev libnet-ssleay-perl openssl ssl-cert libauthen-pam-perl libio-pty-perl libmd5-perl libpg-perl libdbd-pg-perl php5-pgsql sqlite3 libsqlite3-dev openssl ssl-cert libapache2-mod-php5 php5-cli php5-common phpMyAdmin php5-mcrypt mcrypt phppgadmin apache2 libmcrypt-dev

Get the Freeswitch Code

cd /usr/src/

svn checkout freeswitch

Build Freeswitch...

cd freeswitch


./configure –prefix=/usr/local/freeswitch


make install

make sounds-install

make moh-install

make samples

Run Freeswitch...

cd /usr/local/freeswitch/bin


That's as far as I've taken it at this point...

Shout out to for shedding light on Debian (etch)  install of Freeswitch.
