by Sarkoon (#31515180) Attached to: Mississippi Makes Caller ID Spoofing Illegal

I have a personal Asterisk server that I've configured with a call-forwarding feature that routes incoming calls to a variety of phones so I can answer calls from the most convenient device at any time. In order to relay the incoming caller-id information, I have to set my outgoing caller-id to that of the caller so that my cell phone shows me the caller's caller-id and not my server's caller-id.

I do not intend to decieve, default or mislead, but my server is making calls (to my own phones) with other people's caller-id all the time.


FreeNAS Switching From FreeBSD To Debian Linux 206

Posted by Soulskill

dnaumov writes "FreeNAS, a popular, free NAS solution, is moving away from using FreeBSD as its underlying core OS and switching to Debian Linux. Version 0.8 of FreeNAS as well as all further releases are going to be based on Linux, while the FreeBSD-based 0.7 branch of FreeNAS is going into maintenance-only mode, according to main developer Volker Theile. A discussion about the switch, including comments from the developers, can be found on the FreeNAS SourceForge discussion forum. Some users applaud the change, which promises improved hardware compatibility, while others voice concerns regarding the future of their existing setups and lack of ZFS support in Linux."

Time to take stock. Go home with some office supplies.
