This rpm is all you need to easily download and install with the least intervention on your SME.

Configuration

here are the available configurations:

  • status : enabled
  • TCPPorts : 8080,8443,8880,8843
  • UDPPorts : 3478,10001
  • VersionToInstall: here is the version number you want to install. Default is usually the version number of the rpm, you can force to install another version, if needed, and this is the real way to upgrade your controller.
