WINDOWS THIN-CLIENT VOIP RECORDER
This recorder passively monitors all Ethernet VoIP traffic and silently records it. It will then upload each call recording directly to your personal CallN account via a secure 2048-bit SSL encrypted connection.
It records all SIP, H.323, Cisco SCCP, MGCP, NEC iSIP, LG iPECS, Broadsoft, Mitel, Avaya, Toshiba, Panasonic and ShoreTel calls.
LATEST VERSION: 1.31.0 – 25 JUNE, 2019 (24.5MB)
Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7, Vista and Windows Server 2008/R2, 2012/R2, 2016 (32-bit / 64-bit)
WHAT’S NEW IN THIS VERSION
- New Feature – Detect Cisco CUCM call metadata from TAPI driver.
- New Feature – Netsapiens call recording interface.
- New Feature – Added SIPREC endpoint ability to be set to local ip address.
- New Feature – If you create a registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARECallNVoIPRecordingClientMaximumCallLengthSeconds as DWORD then any call exceeding this duration will be terminated and saved.
- Fixed – Call not recorded when RTP first matched via absolute address/port and then media changed to address not defined in SDP.
- Fixed – Remote linux executing ‘sudo command -v tcpdump’ via bash shell e.g. ‘sudo bash -c “command -v tcpdump”‘ to fix compatability issues with some distributions.
- Fixed – Panasonic MGCP use ‘X-P/cctl(04)’ to detect hangup.
- Fixed – Shoretel phone numbers and call direction for new handset model.
- Fixed – Cisco CallManager active SIPREC listener will change call/destination parties when a full Australian phone number in international format is detected as the destination phone number.
- Fixed – Detect non-spec Asterisk SIP INFO application/dtmf-relay event content. e.g. ‘Signal=10 Duration=160’.
- Fixed – SIP 488 Not Acceptable Here Status Message received in response to SIP INFO dtmf-relay was tearing down call not just for INVITE message.
- Fixed – SIP INFO application/dtmf-relay was sometimes associated with the wrong call party.
- Fixed – SIP auto-answer calls which automatically change direction have issue with subsequent update SIP info and name direction.
- Fixed – Enhance registration process for newer Panasonic handsets. This would cause handset direction to be incorrect and a lot of ‘Anonymous’ calls.
- Changed – Set the default pcap filter to ‘not (greater 10240 or port 445 or port 139 or port 69)’. This will ignore packets larger than 10KB as well as SMB and TFTP packets which will help reduce traffic to be processed. e.g. when file servers are part of the capture stream.
- Changed – Changed STUN server for public ip detection to ‘stun1.l.google.com’.
CHANGE LOG HISTORY
