[GUIDE] Install Mumble (VOIP) Server

Here’s another neat use for the MBL. It allows you to use your MyBookLive as a VOIP server!

What is Mumble


TODO: I would like to get SSL Certificates working… Any help would be appreciated :slight_smile:

Comment out the wheezy sources with nano by putting a # in front of the line containing wheezy repos

nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Hit control and o

Hit enter

Hit control and x

This will save your edited file

Example of a good sources.list

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main
#deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main
#deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main
#deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ sid main

Remove the package references to the firmware

rm -f /var/lib/dpkg/info/wd-nas.*

 Update your sources

apt-get update

 Install Mumble Server

apt-get install mumble-server

Now we need to edit the mumble server settings

nano /etc/mumble-server.ini

 You need to find the following and add a SECURE password

# Password to join server

Download a Mumble Client

IOS Client


Android Client



Windows, MAC, and LINUX Clients


To use this outside your network you need to forward port 64738 to your MBL internal IP

Setup the Clients to connect to your WAN IP


Username= Anything you want

Password= The password you setup in the mumble-server.ini file
