Mumble is a completely free and open source alternative to other voice suites, such as Teamspeak. It runs on Windows, Linux, OS X, and iOS. This guide will teach you how to setup a Mumble server on Ubuntu.
This installation will automatically create a user named "mumble-server" which will be used to run the Mumble server.
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install mumble-server
Now we have to set some basic configuration options.
sudo dpkg-reconfigure mumble-server
This will give you some configuration choices:
sudo nano /etc/mumble-server.ini
Here you can change the more advanced options for the actual server. All other options can be configured from the Mumble client using the SuperUser login that we setup a password for earlier.
Some recommended changes to consider:
Some additional options that you may want to change:
When you're done configuring your options, restart the Mumble server:
sudo service mumble-server restart
If you use UFW, then it's very easy. If you're not sure, run the command
ufw status. You will see a printout similar to "Status: active" when UFW is running. In this case, run the command below to open the required firewall port.
sudo ufw allow 64738
Otherwise, it is assumed that you're using iptables. You can use these commands for iptables:
iptables -A INPUT -p udp --dport 64738 -j ACCEPT iptables -A INPUT -p udp --sport 64738 -j ACCEPT iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 64738 -j ACCEPT iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --sport 64738 -j ACCEPT
That's all! You will now be able to connect with the SuperUser username and the password you set, and manage your channel using the Mumble client.
