TeamSpeak is a quality, scalable application which enables people to speak with one another over the Internet. TeamSpeak consists of both client and server software. The server acts as a host to multiple client connections, capable of handling literally thousands of simultaneous users. This results in an Internet based teleconferencing solution that works in a variety of applications such as team mates speaking with one another while playing their favorite online game, small businesses cutting costs on long distance charges, or for personal communication with friends and family. For more information see


TeamSpeak is free of charge to non-commercial users. Please see their FAQ for more information on licensing and terms of use.


For installation just hit the following command

yum localinstall smeserver-teamspeak-server-


This RPM is not updatable. Please uninstall old version before installing the new one.

Optionnal Firewall settings

  • You could want the web interface to be globaly accessible:
db configuration setprop teamspeak TCPPort 14534
signal-event remoteaccess-update
  • You could also want to view your server's activity on your website (if the web server is outside your LAN):
db configuration setprop teamspeak TCPPort 51234
signal-event remoteaccess-update

You can even use both:

db configuration setprop teamspeak TCPPort 14534,51234
signal-event remoteaccess-update
  • Allow another server instance on port 8768 (server still needs to be added in the web interface!)
db configuration setprop teamspeak UDPPort 8767,8768
signal-event remoteaccess-update
Important.png Note:
In server-only mode, you need to forward these ports from your router to your SME!

To revert to defaults settings, issue following commands:

db configuration delprop teamspeak TCPPort
db configuration setprop teamspeak UDPPort 8767
signal-event remoteaccess-update
