Introduction

Who Is This For?

This document is for people not familiar with Unix commands and directories. The detailed explanations insinuate a long procedure, don't let that deter you, it takes about two hours to have the sample FreeSWITCH™ configuration running on OS X, not including backups.

What You Should Already Know
You must know your way around the OS X FinderDock and Textedit. You should also be familiar with the standard OS X folders (directories) such as Applications, Utilities, Downloads, Users, etc.

New To You
A new folder (directory) called /usr/local, it's part of the UNIX standard directories. We'll use a few Unix commands such as: cdmkdirlscpmv,chmodchown, and sudo. You don't need to learn about them unless you change the steps or directories used in this document.

 

 


Installation

Using an Upgraded OS X or Xcode

All testing for these instructions was performed on a clean/non-upgraded OS X and Xcode system, without issues. Most upgraded OS X or Xcode systems will work depending on the level of the oldest software. Some upgraded systems had problems due to old files left in different directories. 

The OS X FreeSWITCH™ Installer

If the OS X system is 10.9 or later, consider using the OS X FreeSWITCH™ Installer. It automates most of the steps in the release instructions below and saves a lot of time! Check it out at Installation on OS X using AppleScript.

Test FreeSWITCH™!

Startup From the Command Line

The time has come to start FreeSWITCH™ in a Terminal window:

  cd /usr/local/freeswitch/bin
  ./freeswitch

There are many startup messages ending with some text boxes containing the names of the developers.

Test the FreeSWITCH™ Command Prompt

After all startup messages are displayed a command prompt appears, messages may continue as the prompt remains. Try a few FreeSWITCH™ commands:

  version
  status
  sofia status

If the commands return responses FreeSWITCH™ is working and you can continue with the next step.

Test A Phone

Test using a physical SIP phone or soft phone such as Bria, or search the OS X App Store for "SIP" for a free download of Telephone. Setup the phone using the IP address of the Mac FreeSWITCH™ is running on. The port is 5060, user IDs 1000-1019 with a password of 1234 are pre-configured. Additional information is at Test CallsTest as many functions as you can to experience the potential of FreeSWITCH™.

Shutdown FreeSWITCH™

Issue the following command in the FreeSWITCH™ Terminal window:

  shutdown
