Building a conference bridge for newbs

Post by furious »

Hi all,
Aside from years of working with Ubuntu Studio and some work with Asterisk via GUI, I am relatively new to Linux and have no experience with building a conference bridge using Linux prior to yesterday.
Here's what I have done;
Installed CentOS 6 - maybe not the be distro to use - recommendations are welcome.
Compiled Opal
Complied PWLib
Tried to compile openh323 but got ERROR 404 from voxgratia.org when trying to download openh323-v1_19_1...

I know it is too much to ask but does anyone have a checklist/step-by-step/how-to guide for building a conference bridge from Linux installation to openMCU installation with a guideline for the necessary steps in between.

I have been reading (and googling for days)

any recommendations are greatly appreciated. I am extremely interesting in learning more about the benefits and usage of VoIP/Videoconferencing using Linux.

Thanks

The OpenH323 project has been abandoned since 2007. The project has been continued on as H323plus. You will find all the latest source at http://www.h323plus.org/source/ there is a tutorial next to the download button.

IF you want the latest then get the source. GnuGk has build instructions for ptlib and h323plus

There is no separate instructions for OpenMCU but the sourceforge repository is here.
