[ANN] Yate has been ported for FreeBSD

Season's Greetings!

Yate is a telephony engine aimed at creating a telephony server that performs well enough to deal with PBX requirements and also flexible enough for complex Gateway and IVR solutions.

The yate has now also been ported for FreeBSD, I don't have resources to test, it however is possible to build the same on other *BSD systems too.

To install the ports download:

# make package

To update your csup and, or cvsup refuse file:

# cat /usr/ports/refuse comms/spandsp-devel* net/yate* EOT

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 cdrbuild module formats date/time in human readable form (this can also be useful for PostgreSQL and, or other database modules).
  • The status now shows ip:port for remote connections in the rmanager module.
  • Updated and, or upto-date manpages, README and INSTALL files.

I'm not that much expert in H323, SIP, IAX and other such protocols and, or PSTN technology, so I request you to please post your relevant and, or technical questions to Null Team; the creators of yate --
