All,

I have just tried to renew an Operator license and the reseller has told me not to bother as the product is being discontinued. Does anyone here know anything about this?

Thanks!

Yeah I'd say so. Get out while you still can.

My company is a registered VoIP provider in Texas, now expanding into Georgia and Florida. have many Operator servers, and the only thing that comes close to what I want as a replacement is VitalPBX. I have tested it with my with IBMs Watson for voicemail transcription, OpenCNAM, OpenVPN and Grandstream phones. So far love it. I plan on shifting all my servers to it this year. I have loved Operator for its simplicity, but no more.

Can it work with an on-prem directory server for user authentication?

Sadly, i received a response from GFI, Operator will not receive any more updates.
So in other words, Operator is being left for dead.

Very frustrating Evil or Very Mad

Directory binding and authentication it does not. Fortunately, few of my clients benefited from that integration. That is a drawback.

Thanks for the info.

If you don't mind sharing... how do you manage their accounts/passwords since your users must have to manage email credentials separately from desktop login credentials?

Do you set them up with an initial password, tell them it's for email only, then force them to change at first login?

How often do they forget their passwords?

Thanks,

ft.

Email and PBX web login credentials are, alas, separate. I wish there were directory integration like Operator, but even with Operator we almost never used it. We set up an initial password and provide documentation to a client-side admin with limited permissions to the server.

BTW VitalPBX is working out wonderfully, except the latest update 2.3.1 broke the IBM Watson integration. So if you are thinking of using that, find the ISO initial release of 2.3.

Can I bump this up the forum...

My licence is due to expire shortly and I would like someone from Kerio / GFI to confirm what is happening with Operator.

(not that anyone has been in touch to discuss licence renewal)

Kerio Operator is End of Engineering. There will no longer be new releases or bug fixes, but GFI Support can provide support to the product. Customers under a valid SMA are entitled to such support.

Whats happens when license will expire?

Kerio will renew a license for a product that is deprecated ?

one concern, is security bug in the OpenSSL cryptography library will occur, did you fix this ?

Best,

Agree very much with you Roy.

I can't use a product that will not be updated against ever prevailing security threats.

I did not renew this year (as I see no point) and made the decision to move over to a Grandstream UCM 6204 appliance.

Not only am I saving around 30c a day in electricity with this appliance, I am also finding not having an extension limit restriction a revelation!

I'm very impressed so far.

My next concern will be when GFI decides to quit Kerio Connect!
