Difference between vmail and ARI


#1

hi…

what is the difference between ARI and vmail, they seem to do similiar stuff.

also is it possible to change the default port for these sites.

Basically they both do the same thing. The only difference being vmail is advertised when you receive a voicemail and ARI is not. You have to know how to get to the ARI section to use it.

Yes, the ports can be changed. I change the ports for each of them and serve them to a different set of users. My system admins and I use ARI for voicemail and our customers use vmail (also on a port that is accessible from outside our NAT).

thanks for that, is there a tutorial on changing the ports.

hopefully soon i will be able to contribute rather than asking a ton of questions :smile:
