What applications do you usually deploy?

Hi all, I'm currently configuring a portable AREDN server to be included in my go-box, and I'm just asking me, what kind of software do you usally deploy.

This is my currently desployment:

  • Operating System: Ubuntu Server 19.04
  • Hardware: Zotac mini PC ( with 8Gb of RAM and 80 Gb HDD
  • Software
    • Google Person Finder (not yet deployed)
    • Forms: I'm looking for a simple software to deploy forms for multiples purposes like affiliation of people, etc, etc. (maybe
    • Etherpad: for collaborating notes
    • to use as file server, because nextcloud it's to big for my current needs
    • Let's Chat: for chat
    • PAT: for winlink over HTTP (not yet installed)
    • Rclone: to sync the folders that we have in Google Drive or Dropbox with the Caddy Server (file server)
    • Asterisk: VoIP Server
    • Docker-CE: to deploy some services easily
    • Portainer: to manage docker easily
    • CMS: to deploy a webpage to show information (maybe as a captive portal). I'm tinkering with because don't need a database (not yet deployed)

I would appreciate any suggestion.

One of the applications we push out to every hospital, EOC and and that is an integral part of every 'go-box' now is Teamtalk.   It's a text/voice/video chat application with a built-in drop box, among other features.   It has the capability of handling multiple channels, all with simultaneous full-duplex voice capability.  A voice stream doesn't stress the network much, so it has a large capacity.  We recently ran a voice/video net with 7 simultaneous video streams, and it held up pretty well.
The Teamtalk server runs nicely on a Raspberry Pi.   We have one in a mountaintop site, sitting right on the backbone for good connectivity, and the site has battery and solar backup for power continuity.

TeamTalk Installation and setup?

Would you please point us to a good write-up or two on how to install and setup a new virgin copy of TeamTalk on a PI3 please? Also, any hints etc would be much appreciated.

My internet searching seems to come up dry on this ...

I've never written up a Teamtalk server installation before, just fumbled around until I got it working :-)
I'm currently running it on a Debian server.  I'll write an Raspbian installation unless someone beats me to it (I'll be out of town for a couple of weeks).

Teamtalk server installation

For Windows:

If you're comfortable with Linux, a Raspberry Pi is an ideal platform for Teamtalk.  We loaded an RPI running the Teamtalk server down with 7 simultaneous video streams and CPU utilization was only about 15 percent.  

I couldn't find an absolutely current procedure, but basically follow this for the basic installation:

Then finish the configuration with the steps here:

Hope that helps...
