[Freeswitch-users] Is there a way to update mod_event_socket with a new apply-inbound-acl list without restarting freeswitch?

Thanks, Anthony. Your comments were very helpful.

Just to close off on this thread, here are the steps we used during testing:

How to make an app connect to a remote freeswitch:

1-      In Event_socket.conf.xml

Set the listen-ip attribute to  <param name="listen-ip" value=""/>

Add <param name="apply-inbound-acl" value="AllowedIP"/>

2-      In acl.conf.xml add the following:
        <list name="AllowedIP" default="deny">
                                <node type="allow" cidr="xx.xx.xx.xx/32"/>     (Where xx.xx.xx.xx is the ip address where the app resides)

If you dont reuse the name localnet.auto and make your own list name in acl.conf  it will update when you do reloadacl.  The only thing the mod is storing is the name and it looks it up every time.  .auto lists are generated by the core once.

Never manually modify any .auto list name.

Execute "reload mod_event_socket" from console.
Console will be disconnected, but FS is still ruined.
Then simple reconnect to FS

Suppose a freeswitch configuration has the following defined in event_socket.conf.xml:

<configuration name="event_socket.conf" description="Socket Client">
    <param name="nat-map" value="false"/>
    <param name="listen-ip" value=""/>
    <param name="listen-port" value="8021"/>
    <param name="password" value="ClueCon"/>
    <!--<param name="stop-on-bind-error" value="true"/>-->

     <param name="apply-inbound-acl" value="localnet.auto"/>
                <list name="localnet.auto" default="allow">
                                <node type="allow" cidr="<>"/>

The above configuration will allow a remote PC with an IP address of to issue commands to freeswitch (e.g. bgapi).

Now, suppose we wanted to update the apply-inbound-acl list like this:

     <param name="apply-inbound-acl" value="localnet.auto"/>
                <list name="localnet.auto" default="allow">
                                <node type="allow" cidr="<>"/>
                                <node type="allow" cidr="<>"/>

The list has been updated to allow a remote PC with an IP address of to connect to freeswitch.

The only way to get this to work is to restart freeswitch. We were wondering if there is another way that would not require a stop & start of freeswitch.

The following has already been tried:

-          Moved the apply-inbound-acl to acl.conf.xml. Invoke the “reloadxml” and “reloadacl” commands
