You must install OpenSIPS Control Panel or rtpengine media proxy if you wish to use them, as these tools are not provided by this module. It is possible to use existing puppet forge modules like alisio-opensipscp or alisio-rtpengine.

There are sample manifest inside the 'tests' folder.

Sample install with Control Panel and rtpengine:

class {'opensips':}
class {'opensipscp':}
class {'rtpengine':}

Sample install with Control Panel and rtpproxy:

class {'opensips':
  mediaproxy_type => 'rtpproxy',
-> class {'opensipscp':}


To install opensips on a server, simply include the class.

include opensips

Add SIP users with opensipctl:

opensipsctl add <USERNAME>@<DOMAIN> <PASSWORD>

Add domains with opensipctl:

opensipsctl domain add <DOMAIN>

To customize the installation change the parameters as desired, acording to the Parameters session.

class {'opensips':
  proxy_port => 5070,
  opensips_mediaserver_hostport => ''
