Helix PBX



This is a ugly website about Helix PBX.

Helix PBX is a telephony exchange powered by Asterisk for calls over SIP and GSM.

Get connected

If you want to make calls you need to have an account. Please apply for a subscription by mailing your preferred credentials (e.g using Xorpad with "realiserad" as recipient if you don't want to send your password in plaintext).

Subscribers

Please take a look in subscribers.txt in case you have a dangling pointer.

Connect

You need a SIP client which supports SRTP and TLS. Below is a list of software for different platforms (they're all tested and I know they work).

In the pipe

✗ Some kind of operator message when a user is offline. Asterisk will just hang up the call atm which is pretty confusing. (fixed 2015-02-10)
✗ Encryption using SRTP and TLS. (fixed 2015-02-25)

Services

All network operator services are preceded by asterisk *. The following extensions are dialable:

*1984 -- Jenny Lane singing Firework. I had the Katy Perry original at first, but the acoustic version sounds better over SIP.
*1970 -- UNIX Time service (Fröken Ur)

Sounds

The operator messages were created using eSpeak and Ivona. If you want to download them, go ahead. They're available in the trunk.
