Installing OrecX Audio

Complete the following checklist before installing OrecX Audio. The items in the checklist should be completed by a network or system administrator with an understanding of Linux operating systems and networking protocols.

  • Confirm that the server has access to the internet and that you've been provided with a download link from OrecX.

  • Ensure that the following ports are open and accessible:

    • TCP — 8080, 8443, 22

    • UDP/TCP — 5060, 5061

    • RTP — 1000-65000

    • Live Audio — 59120

    • API — 59140


    The ports above are considered local traffic. OrecX Audio does not require any open inbound ports.

    Outbound traffic may need to be permitted for data transfer.

  • Install the following packages:

    • yum install wget
    • yum install perl
  • Confirm network connectivity between the phone network and the recording server.

  • Confirm that the phone system is configured for active recording to forward packets to the recorder.

  • Confirm bi-directional traffic between the Session Border Controller (SBC) and the recording server.

  • Confirm a test extension is set up to validate functionality of call recording software once it is installed.

Once the steps in the checklist above are complete, run the commands in the following list to install OrecX Audio (orkudio).
