Yate is a telephony engine aimed at creating a telephony server that
performs well enough to deal with PBX (Private Branch eXchange)
requirements, ACD (Advanced Call Distribution) and also flexible enough
for complex VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) Gateway, Conferencing
and IVR (Interactive Voice Response) solutions. Currently, popular
packet voice and, or software protocols SIP, H.323 and IAX2 as well as
traditional TDM hardware including many a T1, E1, ISDN PRI and ISDN BRI
are supported over various signaling protocols.


An updated yate port is available for FreeBSD, I don't have enough of the
resources to test; it however is possible to build the same on other *BSD
variants too.

To install/upgrade the ports download:

To extract:
# tar jxvf /yate.tar.bz2 -C /usr/ports/net
# tar jxvf /spandsp-devel.tar.bz2 -C /usr/ports/comms
# cd /usr/ports/net/yate
# make install


# make package

NOTE: Before running csup and, or cvsup do create and, or update a
refuse file:

# cat <>/usr/ports/refuse

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 status now shows iport for remote connections in the rmanager
* Updated and, or upto-date manpages, README and INSTALL files.

I'm not that much expert in SIP, H.323, IAX2 and other such protocols
and, or PSTN technology, so I request you to please post your relevant
and, or technical questions to Null Team only; the creators of yate at
