SIP-Communicator and Twinkle

Werner 's picture

Thanks for looking at these two clients :-)

As for SIP Communicator: just currently we are working to stabilize it and make
it ready for a version 1, a release candiate (RC1) is in the pipeline. Just
recently we added some better ZRTP GUI stuff and handling, also video is under
testing. Also planned is a demonstration at FOSDEM 2009.

The problem with the firewall may be due to the fact that zfoned reconfigures
the firewall to sniff on the UDP ports (this is why ip_queue is required). Zfoned
add rules to the firewall when it starts and removes them when it terminates. You
may check this by listing your active rules when zfoned is up and running.

I'm really looking forward

I'm really looking forward to an official release of SIP Communicator. A working cross platform alternative to skype with encryption will undoubtedly cut the number of hours I spend troubleshooting nonfunctional sip communications in half:-) When version 1 comes out I'll give it a much more thorough look. It's great that SIP Communicator is closing the gap on one of the few areas that proprietary software still maintains an edge.

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

Linux has become a key foundation for supporting today's rapidly growing IT environments. Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
