Setup Ozeki 10 on Asus TinkerOS

See how to install Ozeki 10 step-by-step on your Asus Tinker Board. The architecture of this board is similar to a Raspberry Pi architecture, although the Asus board is twice as fast and has bigger RAM. The board has a factory installed Linux distribution called Asus TinkerOS and since it is a Linux variant, it has a similar intallation process.


Connect your monitor to the Asus board with a simple HDMI cable. Check if your screen is HDMI compatible. Turn on the Asus tinker board and you will see the TinkerOS boot up with a wonderful, user friendly GUI. Start the terminal as you can see it below. Gain root (admin) privileges to install Ozeki software on your OS. You have two choices. You can either write sudo before every command or you can use sudo -s By doing so, you will not have to use the 'sudo' prefix before the upcoming commands copied from the grey brackets of this guide. If you are reading this tutorial on a computer. Look at the screenshot. See that the terminal user has changed from 'linaro' to 'root'. Follow this guide in root mode.

In case you would like to remotely reach the Ozeki GUI, find the IP address of your Ozeki 10 server by typing 'ifconfig' in the TinkerOS linux terminal. The default Ozeki 10 port number is 9505 in all cases, although it can be changed with the Security application if you would like to use or already using 9505.

You can find the 'Control Panel' on the desktop. I started here as well. The Control Panel can be used to add and route connections together. You can find plenty of hardware and software connections that you might already have in your home. For example you can start by adding your microphone and speakers. A lot of devices detected by your operating system can be seen by Ozeki 10 applications. With the 'Events' button on the top toolbar you can see all Ozeki events.

All Ozeki 10 server logs are stored in the '/var/log', where each TinkerOS application can create logfiles in separate directories. Please jump to the folder which stores the Ozeki logfiles: /var/log/ozeki is the proper way to reach the files with the system event logs then press 'ls' to list these files as seen on the picture. You can find the system, licensing logs and the Ozeki 10 HTTP server logs as well by reading httpd.log

cd /var/log/ozeki

The 'Service' folder stores all of the routes and connections you have added to Ozeki 10. It also stores the original installation files of Ozeki 10. Jump to the 'Service' folder with the following command: cd /var/lib/ozeki/Service For example the connections and routes are stored in 'AppData'. It is a folder useful and easily reached by all Ozeki 10 applications. Every available application can be found in the Ozeki Start Menu.

cd /var/lib/ozeki/Service

'Config' is a child of the 'Service' folder you are at the moment. Check it out with the 'cd Config' command. For those, who just hopped in: This is the required folder to check all device and Ozeki settings: /var/lib/ozeki/Service/Config The 'Config' folder stores the settings for all Ozeki application you own. For example the PBX connection details are saved for your Softphone app.
