I've read articles where Unison server is suppose to be freely available for Linux, but I'm having a hard time finding it. For one, unison brings up the directory mirroring utility. I want the unified communications package but I don't want it as a SaaS which looks to be the only way right now that I can find.

Simply, we're moving to the country and so my little girl will be coming home after school instead of the after school program where she would wait for me to pick her up. With her now coming home after school her mother and I thought it'd be a good idea that she had a landline/home phone in case of emergencies. I'm working on getting broadband out in the country so I wanted to just route her an IP phone through my setup instead of using a traditional phone line and the unison server would provide my new country home with everything I need if I can just get internet out there with either wildblue or something.

Anyone know anything or an alternative package to my situation?

I just looked at the package description for Unison & I don't see how that has anything to do with phone lines.

Yeah, I'm not wanting to do anything with phone lines. I'm not sure what Unison handles. That's a lot of why I want a version of it. It suppose to be a complete communications package. I installed the demo desktop and I really liked it. The interface has a place to configure your ip phone so your voicemails are streamed and you can place calls using the GUI on your computer.

I'm wondering if it's an upgrade to an installation of Ubuntu and not a complete install all itself. ???

I'm running Slackware 13 right now and lovin' it and I didn't want to overwrite it with Ubuntu just to search the repository just to make sure I didn't miss it cause I'm not finding it on web searches.

Unison is a file-synchronization tool for Unix and Windows. It allows two replicas of a collection of files and directories to be stored on different hosts (or different disks on the same host), modified separately, and then brought up to date by propagating the changes in each replica to the other.

Unison shares a number of features with tools such as configuration management packages (CVS, PRCS, etc.) distributed filesystems (Coda, etc.) uni-directional mirroring utilities (rsync, etc.) and other synchronizers (Intellisync, Reconcile, etc).

That's the package description from the ports collection on FreeBSD. I have Ubuntu but it's not booted at the moment. It doesn't seem to be a communication package at all. I think you're confused with something else.

That is what's making my web search so difficult is that I keep getting the file sync tool.

Actually, I don't think the server package is available except as a SaaS.

It's a service & you pay a monthly bill. You just don't install it once & use it.
