Any clever people know of ways to easily remote support Asterisk installs without having difficulty of Port Forwarding on routers?
I’d like to be able to supply Asterisk systems that can readily be supported when plugged into a LAN with Internet access.
Is something like TeamViewer for Linux an option?
I know it’s more X windows than CLI.
Is there a CLI alternative?
I’ve heard a little about SSH tunneling but not sure if it needs an intermediary machine or provides what I need directly.
With the advent of cheap powerful CPU’s with onboard graphics is X windows and TeamViewer now a viable option?
Really trying to avoid having to try and tell customers how to forward ports on their routers if possible. An ‘idiot proof’ solution perhaps.
Additionally, curious if anyone has comments or preference on AsteriskNow vs FreePBX Distro?
As best as I can tell -
AsteriskNow CentOS 5.5, Asterisk 1.7.1, FreePBX 2.7
FreePBX Distro CentOS 5.2, Asterisk 1.8.2, FreePBX 2.9
I know most people here are likely users of AsteriskNOW but if you have any tangible comments of differences between the two I’d like to know.
