A Guide to Administration on VMan Systems


By Sire and Psyclone 


SDX? MessageBase? No, the term you're all looking for is: 
Voice Manager System 

Most people in the uk scene have been talking about PBX`s for a long time 
now. Perhaps the most talked about is the SDX or the Messagebase (same 
thing). Until now, some sceners have used them, some lamers have abused 
them but no one (in my knowledge) has actually mastered the administration 
of the system. BUT, that all changed in the last two hours or so. 
After installing a phone from the nextdoor neighbours line, and after many 
frustrating times with an accoustic coupler and a 1-2-1, i decided to start 
randomly scanning 0800`s for pbx`s. After 3 tries, i stumbled on a nice 
little system begging to be hacked. While scanning for the 3 digit box 
numbers and passwords for about a half hour, i got into a mailbox. The box 
seemed normal at first with all the primary functions you would find in any 
other system of the same kind. This all changed when i started using the 
automatic call handling function. Instead of getting the droning female 
voice, i was prompted to enter my password. I did so and was then 
confronted with list of functions. i dictated all the options to psyclone 
and we then tried them all one by one. In short, we had hacked an admin
