[Spce-user] Has anyone managed to get HOMER to work?

Thanks everyone - so, I can confirm it looks like no packets are coming from the server by default, but, running SNGREP with the -H option is producing them and I can see them both being sent and received, however, nothing is being populated on the server still.

I'll contact them and keep my fingers crossed (I couldn't see any official support).

yes Homer is supported and i also run Homer Capture Clients on SPCE and send it to my Homer Server.

I use

·         rtpengine for RTCP Stats (https://github.com/sipcapture/homer/wiki/Examples%3A-RTPEngine)

·         captagent for SIP packages (https://github.com/sipcapture/captagent/wiki/Configuration)

·         hepipe for Log (https://github.com/sipcapture/homer/wiki/Examples%3A-hepipe.js)

you can also use captagent for RTCP stats also... this is default if you install captagent, so you must deactivate RTCP stats in captagent config files to use just the rtpengine (it is more performance)

to check if packages get sent to your homer server you can check this:

all Traffic:

ngrep -W byline port 9060 and host YOUR-HOMER-IP

Nur Log Traffic (Hepipe)

ngrep -W byline port 9060 | grep proxy

Nur RTCP Stats (rtpengine)

ngrep -W byline port 9060 | grep sender

Nur SIP traffic (Captagent)

ngrep -W byline port 9060 | grep sip

AT Homer Server you can do this for checking if something is coming:
ngrep -W byline port 9060 and host YOUR-SPCE-SERVER-IP

Are you using a network tap in your hardware configuration?  I haven't used homer yet, but I know for doing these kinds of captures it is often required.  Some Cisco switches have a tap port built in, if you don't have this type of hardware try doing a search for Network Tap.  Here are some that I have used with good results:

Good luck!

I am trying to diagnose an issue for a client and am getting a bit fed up of tracing through Wireshark.

I have seen Homer for some time and had a few hours spare, so, I thought I would set it up...

I edited my config.yml homer section to:

  capture_id: 'homer01'
  capture_pass: 123
  enabled: yes
  host: --homer-ip-address
  port: '9060'

"Ngcpcfg build" followed by "ngcp apply homer"

I setup a new box, installed Debian and ran the install script as per the instructions on github. There were a few errors relating to region settings - but, it looks like everything installed fine (Mysql, Apache etc.).

I can see the web interface fine, but, it just doesn't get populated with anything.

I ran "tcpdump host -homer-ip-address" and couldn't see anything. I then ran "sngrep -H udp:--homer-ip-address:9060" along with "ngrep -W byline port 9060" on the Homer server, and, I could see the HEP packets coming through.

So, I was wondering:
Is Homer supported on community edition/did I do something wrong? (I wasn't sure what capture_pass is / I tried various default passwords)
Has anyone managed to get it work?
Can anyone give me some hints? I can't see any community/IRC etc.
