I have been meaning to get this wrote up for a while now, but while I was setting up a new client I remembered.
Skyetel has an awesome feature to enable you to get alerts on your PBX going offline to their network.
Setting it up is as simply as a few clicks.
The Skyetel knowledge base article on the subject is pretty solid, but generic, as it should be.
From your Skyetel Dasboard:
Click on Endpoints
Click on Endpoint Health
Click to turn on the toggle under Uptime Alerts.
Click on View more under Details.
On the detail page, click on the empty circles next to "Network QOS" and "SNMP Metrics" to enable them.
Now you need to sign in to your FreePBX system via SSH to install the snmp packages
As always, let us assume you are not using
sudo yum install -y net-snmp net-snmp-utils
- Backup the default
sudo mv /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf.bak
- Create a new config file
sudo tee -a /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf > /dev/null << EOF rocommunity public EOF
- Enable and start the
sudo systemctl enable --now snmpd
Sign in to the FreePBX web interface
Click on Connectivity -> Firewall
Click on the Hamburger menu on the top right
Click on Advanced
Click on the Advanced Settings tab.
Under Custom Firewall RulesChange to Enabled
Click on the Advanced Custom Rules tab
In the IPv4 section add this string
-I INPUT -p udp --dport 161 -s 126.96.36.199 -m comment --comment "Skyetel SNMP" -j ACCEPT
Click Save and Apply.
19.You will see a confirmation at the top of the screen, click yes.
- You will see a notice that it was applied successfully.
That's it. In a few minutes the Skyetel dashboard will begin to populate.
I just followed this guide, worked great! Thanks!
