If you want to install HUDlite on your scratch built Asterisk box this is how to set it up. HUDlite server should work with most versions of Linux. It has been tested to work with CentOS and Fedora.
First you need to install a few Perl modules.
perl-POE-0.3401 (this version is required RPM included)
you can use the RPMS that are included with this package or install from CPAN
Next the IRC server must be installed. HUDlite uses IRC to communicate with the server. An RPM has been included with this package
RPM –i ircd-hybrid-7.2.1-1.i386.rpm
The ircd server will start on the next reboot or type service ircd start to start it.
The HUDlite server can be installed anywhere. We usually put it in /usr/local
Move the ./fonality directory to /usr/local
Next configure the connections for the HUDlite server. Edit the connect.xml file. Enter the location and port for your Asterisk box and the login info for your IRC server. The default file should have the right info already.
Now edit your context.xml
This has the user and password for the Asterisk Management interface and all the context information for calling out and parking calls. The default should be OK for trixbox or FreePBX
The eventmap.xml configures how Asterisk Management interface messages are formated. The default file is set up for Asterisk 1.2.7. If you are using another version of Asterisk you may need to edit this file.
Copy the files from the asterisk directory to your /etc/asterisk directory users.xml must be in a sub directory called hud.
Include extensions_hud.conf in your dial-plan
Edit the users.xml and add an entry for each phone
Here is an example
SIP200 - is the name of the device. The name is created by adding the Device type (SIP or ZAP) to the name of your entry for this peer in SIP.conf (usually the extension of the phone)
e200 - is the extension. This must be the extension number of your phone with an "e" in front of it.
Office Phone - is the name of the extension. (Can be anything)
Huduser – the HUDlite client will log in as this user
Pass – is the HUDlite client password
The next three entries are the email address, IM name, and Cell phone number of the person using HUDlite. They are optional and unused at this time. They must be blank if they are not used.
10000 – the ID of the device. The ID must be numeric and unique in the users.xml file.
That’s it. Fire up the server by typing ./hud_lite from the command line and log in with the HUDlite client.
Remember the server password is password (see connect.xml)
