    Hi people,

    Does anyone have experience or know if 3cx runs on a windows 2008 server?

    regards,

    If you are comfortable with this very new system - make try. I would not recommend to use it so early.
    But big anvantage of 2008 is a feature to work without GUI. This is very good for VOIP platform.

    Just try how it works, and maybe you can setup just a few providers for testing, put the logging on verbose, and see how it goes from the beginning with starting all the services etc.

    I really think it shouldn' t be a big problem at all. Just check if 3CX gave you as the administrator all the rights for the Database etc. A newer Windows Server means normally, more security, more configuring.

    I have a spare server with 2008 on it. I will give it a try and let you know very soon. Unless you want to run it on a virtual machine running 2008 as core won't work, at least I don't think so. I'll try that as a 2nd test but it will take a bit longer since i have to format and re-install.

    I think I have some time now to give this a full workout.

    What do you guys want to hear about first? I have 2008 already installed with the full gui. A core install might be 2nd.

    I will post installation problems, firewall issues/tweaks, etc. I don't make or receive many calls but I will test out what I can using NexVortex.
