From the Next Cloud Blog:
Today is a big day. The Nextcloud community is launching a new product and solution called Nextcloud Talk. It’s a full audio/video/chat communication solution which is self hosted, open source and super easy to use and run. This is the result of over 1.5 years of planing and development.
For a long time it was clear to me that the next step for a file sync and share solution like Nextcloud is to have communication and collaboration features build into the same platform. You want to have a group chat with the people you have a group file share with. You want to have a video call with the people while you are collaborative editing a document. You want to call a person directly from within Nextcloud to collaborate and discuss a shared file, a calendar invite, an email or anything else. And you want to do this using the same login, the same contacts and the same server infrastructure and webinterface.
So this is why we announced, at the very beginning of Nextcloud, that we will integrate the Spreed.ME WebRTC solution into Nextcloud. And this is what we did. But it became clear that whats really needed is something that is fully integrated into Nextcloud, easy to run and has more features. So we did a full rewrite the last 1.5 years. This is the result.
Nextcloud Talk can, with one click, be installed on ever Nextcloud server. It contains a group chat feature so that people and teams can communicate and collaborate easily. It also has WebRTC video/voice call features including screen-sharing. This can be used for one on one calls, web-meetings or even full webinars. This works in the Web UI but the Nextxloud community also developed completely new Android and iOS apps so it works great on mobile too. Thanks to push notifications, you can actually call someone directly on the phone via Nextcloud or a different phone. So this is essentially a fully open source, self hosted, phone system integrated into Nextcloud. Meeting rooms can be public or private and invites can be sent via the Nextcloud Calendar. All calls are done peer to peer and end to end encrypted.
So what are the differences with WhatsApp Calls, Threema, Signal Calls or the Facebook Messenger?
All parts of Nextcloud Talk are fully Open Source and it is self hosted. So the signalling of the calls are done by your own Nextcloud server. This is unique. All the other mentioned solutions might be encrypted, which is hard to check if the source-code is not open, but they all use one central signalling server. So the people who run the service know all the metadata. Who is calling whom, when, how long and from where. This is not the case with Nextcloud Talk. Mo metadata is leaked. Another benefit is the full integration into all the other file sharing, communication, groupware and collaboration features of Nextcloud.
So when is it available? The Version 1.0 is available today. The Nextcloud App can be installed with one click from within Nextcloud. But you need the latest Nextcloud 13 beta server for now. The Android and iOS apps are available in the Google and Apple App Stores for free. This is only the first step of course. So if you want to give feedback and contribute then collaborate with the rest of the Nextcloud community.
ModEdit: Added Tags
The 5.0 release supports the latest guest or host operating systems including: Mac OS X Yosemite, Windows 10, Oracle Linux, Oracle Solaris, other Linux operating systems, and legacy operating systems. New capabilities in Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.0:
Paravirtualization Support for Windows and Linux Guests: Significantly improves guest OS performance by leveraging built-in virtualization support on operating systems such as Oracle Linux 7 and Microsoft Windows 7 and newer.
Improved CPU Utilization: Exposes a broader set of CPU instructions to the guest OS, enabling applications to make use of the latest hardware instruction sets for maximum performance.
Support of USB 3.0 Devices: Guest operating systems can directly recognize USB 3.0 devices and operate at full 3.0 speeds. The guest OS can be configured to support USB 1.1, 2.0, and 3.0.
Bi-Directional Drag and Drop Support for Windows: On all host platforms, Windows, Linux and Oracle Solaris guests now support “drag and drop” of content between the host and the guest. The drag and drop feature transparently allows copying or opening of files, directories, and more.
Disk Image Encryption: Data can be encrypted on virtual hard disk images transparently during runtime, using the industry standard AES algorithm with up to 256 bit data encryption keys (DEK). This helps ensure data is secure and encrypted at all times, whether the VM is sitting unused on a developer's machine or server, or actively in use.
Never thought I would see this.....
Wonder what the cost will be
ScreenConnect Free is free for personal use.
Examples of non-commercial cases are:
1 concurrent; 3 access agents
VoIP.ms - New Feature: Phone Book Groups
The phone book groups feature is located under "DID Numbers" then under "Phone Book". You can now create unique groups that fit your needs (e.g. family, work or friends)! Groups can also be used in combination with our CallerID filtering feature. You could for instance route all your calls from your "family" group to your personal mobile.
I am trying to track down the best of the open source email offerings and figure out which is good, which is bad, what is unique and why to choose one over another. So far, these are the known high end candidates of which I am aware.
Does anyone have any input into what is good or bad, or any candidates that are missing from the list? I've not included some things like RoundCube which is just a client and not an email system. RoundCube could be used with any of these products, for example.
I'm a big fan of the classic Postfix + Dovecot (still in use/maintained?) + MariaDB/MySQL/PostgreSQL + SpamAssassin + ClamAV + Sieve + Roundcube combo. There's a pretty cool managesieve plugin for Roundcube which allows you to create filters from within the webmailer.
But it's a lot of work to get everything running.
Sounds like https://mailinabox.email/
I usually create /mnt/iso (for iso's) & /mnt/data (for vm's).
Go to the terminal tab & use wget to grab the iso
Ive made a directory for iso, this is already done.
The issue is I don't want to have to type in a long url to download every iso.
Copy and Paste within the terminal tab is what I'm looking for.
Me too. According to @scottalanmiller it just works but its never worked for me.
I would prefer to eliminate it but what if the person's cell phone is off. Then it is always going straight to their cell voicemail which I want to avoid.
Doh, duh. That makes since.
@JaredBusch That's a good point. Thanks. I'll try that.
I have our shipping manager setup as a Ring Group.
This seems to work somewhat well. Both phones ring at the same time, so you don't have to wait for it to ring, then go to FMFM, etc.
You can still confirm calls, and it doesn't make you confirm the call from your extension. Voicemails still end up on the PBX.
If you get a lot of calls, it can be annoying to get that many call on your mobile phone, but it works in some cases.
One option is to have an Announcement:
Please wait while we try to connect your call, etc.
Also, you can change the hold music after the Announcement so it's more clear that your trying to connect them.
(IE: Hold Music vs. Ringing)
