[Freeswitch-users] Python based Event Socket Library doesn't connect to remote FreeSWITCH

Did you make the eventsocket on the freeswitch server bind to something other than localhost which is its default configuration?


If you do this you should also ensure that this connection is firewalled off and not passed over the public internet as there is absolutely no encryption on this connection and the password is passed in the clear

To all Event Socket Library FreeSWITCH gurus!


Python implementation of the Event Socket Library doesn't seem to work with FreeSWITCH running on remote host. Only "localhost" or "" has to be specified as the first parameter to the ESLconnection constructor to let client to successfully connect to the FreeSWITCH. Event if FreeSWITCH is running on the SAME machine (not even remote host) as the client and the "host" is specified with the IP address of the machine in the ESLconnection - no valid connection is getting established.

I am pretty sure that such a fundamental thing can't not to work and I am just missing something simple. Any help is greatly appreciated.
