How to – Scratch install the dynportal on CentOs, Rocky, or Alma Linux

This article will go over the steps to Scratch install the dynportal on a scratch CentOs, Rocky or Alma Linux Vicidial box that normally comes with the ISO. I have created the files you need and host them on one of my sites for download.

Step 1 – Download the necessary files

You will need 4 files to get this working on your server that you can download below

yum install -y firewalld
cd /home

Step 2 – Move and unzip the files

You can copy and paste the following

  • mkdir -p /var/www/vhosts/dynportal
  • mv /home/ /var/www/vhosts/dynportal/
  • mv /home/ /etc/firewalld/
  • cd /var/www/vhosts/dynportal/
  • unzip
  • cd etc/httpd/conf.d/
  • mv viciportal-ssl.conf viciportal.conf /etc/httpd/conf.d/
  • cd /etc/firewalld/
  • unzip -o
  • mv /home/aggregate /usr/bin/
  • chmod +x /usr/bin/aggregate
  • mv /home/VB-firewall /usr/bin/
  • chmod +x /usr/bin/VB-firewall
Unzip your files

Step 3 – Add your SSL cert to dynportal-ssl.conf and location for redirect is

You need to edit your dynportal-ssl.conf file in /etc/httpd/conf.d/

nano /etc/httpd/conf.d/viciportal-ssl.conf

change the location to your SSL cert files

Scratch install the dynportal on CentOs
Dynportal SSL config

nano /var/www/vhosts/dynportal/inc/

Step 4 – add entry to crontab

Add the following lines to the bottom of your crontab by typing: crontab -e

### ViciBox integrated firewall, by default just load the VoIP Black list and reload it every 4 hours
### You can lock everyone out of your server if you set this wrong, so understand what you are doing!!!
@reboot /usr/bin/VB-firewall --whitelist=ViciWhite --dynamic --quiet
* * * * * /usr/bin/VB-firewall --whitelist=ViciWhite --dynamic --quiet --flush

Step 5 – Add ports to firewall and apache

Now use firewall-cmd and open port 446 on the firewall for public zone like such:

firewall-offline-cmd --add-port=446/tcp --zone=public --permanent

And edit the apache conf file to add the port to it:

  • nano /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
  • Add this line: Listen 446

Step 6 – Restart services

  • service firewalld restart
  • service httpd restart
  • systemctl enable firewalld

That’s it, now go to and you should see the following:

Dynportal Interface
Dynportal Interface



got this fixed… just add this to the crontab and setup the public interface and reboot

@reboot /usr/bin/VB-firewall –-whitelist=ViciWhite –-dynamic –-quiet
* * * * * /usr/bin/VB-firewall –-whitelist=ViciWhite –-dynamic –-quiet –-flush
