Preventing Toll Fraud
“Toll fraud” is the unauthorized use of your telecommunications
system by an unauthorized party (for example, a person who is not
a corporate employee, agent, subcontractor, or working on your
company’s behalf). Be aware that there is a risk of toll fraud associated with your system and that, if toll fraud occurs, it can result
in substantial additional charges for your telecommunications services.
Avaya Fraud Intervention
If you suspect that you are being victimized by toll fraud and you
need technical assistance or support, in the United States and Canada, call the Technical Service Center’s Toll Fraud Intervention
Hotline at 1-800-643-2353.

• Within the United States, click Escalation Lists, which

• Outside the United States, click Escalation Lists then click
Global Escalation List, which includes phone numbers for
the regional Centers of Excellence.
Providing Telecommunications Security
Telecommunications security of voice, data, and/or video communications is the prevention of any type of intrusion to, that is,
either unauthorized or malicious access to or use of, your company’s telecommunications equipment by some party.
Your company’s “telecommunications equipment” includes both
this Avaya product and any other voice/data/video equipment that
could be accessed via this Avaya product (that is, “networked
equipment”).
An “outside party” is anyone who is not a corporate employee,
agent, subcontractor, or working on your company’s behalf.
Whereas, a “malicious party” is Anyone, including someone who
may be otherwise authorized, who accesses your telecommunications equipment with either malicious or mischievous intent.
Such intrusions may be either to/through synchronous (time-multiplexed and/or circuit-based) or asynchronous (character-, message-, or packet-based) equipment or interfaces for reasons of:
• Utilization (of capabilities special to the accessed equipment)
• Theft (such as, of intellectual property, financial assets, or
toll-facility access)
• Eavesdropping (privacy invasions to humans)
• Mischief (troubling, but apparently innocuous, tampering)
• Harm (such as harmful tampering, data loss or alteration,
regardless of motive or intent)
Be aware that there may be a risk of unauthorized intrusions associated with your system and/or its networked equipment. Also
realize that, if such an intrusion should occur, it could result in a
variety of losses to your company, including but not limited to,
human/data privacy, intellectual property, material assets, financial resources, labor costs, and/or legal costs).
Responsibility for Your Company’s Telecommunications
Security
The final responsibility for securing both this system and its networked equipment rests with you – an Avaya customer’s system
administrator, your telecommunications peers, and your managers.
Base the fulfillment of your responsibility on acquired knowledge
and resources from a variety of sources including but not limited
to:
• Installation documents
• System administration documents
• Security documents
• Hardware-/software-based security tools
• Shared information between you and your peers
• Telecommunications security experts
To prevent intrusions to your telecommunications equipment, you
and your peers should carefully program and configure your:
• Avaya provided telecommunications systems and their
interfaces
• Avaya provided software applications, as well as their
underlying hardware/software platforms and interfaces
• Any other equipment networked to your Avaya products
TCP/IP Facilities
Customers may experience differences in product performance,
reliability and security depending upon network configurations/
design and topologies, even when the product performs as warranted.

To install or upgrade to the current release of the VisAbility Management Suite, your Red Hat
Linux operating system must be the required version as defined in Table 3-1 on page 15. If
your Linux server is running an earlier version of Red Hat, you must upgrade before you
install or upgrade the VisAbility Management Suite. Avaya does not support upgrades to the
Red Hat Linux server.
Complete the following procedure to upgrade the Linux operating systems.
1. Before you start the upgrade, back up the /etc/services file. Backing up this file
preserves the settings that were specified during the original Red Hat installation. The
VisAbility Management Suite only needs a subset of the standard Red Hat services.
2. Upgrade the Linux server. Refer to the document, Configuring Red Hat Linux on the
Avaya Support web site. For additional support, refer to your Red Hat operating
system documentation or contact your Red Hat support vendor.
3. After you upgrade, restore the /etc/services file in its original directory. The VisAbility
Management Suite needs only a subset of the standard Red Hat services. Copying and
replacing this services file ensures that only the necessary services are turned on.

Before you install or upgrade the products on the Linux server, you must first complete the
following pre-installation tasks.
1. Collect the “root” login and password for the Linux Server.
2. During the installation or upgrade, you will need to enter the IP address, server
domain names, and port addresses. Refer to form VMS001 Administration Request for
MultiVantage Fault and Performance Manager and MultiVantage Proxy Agent for this

The preferred configuration for the MultiVantage products is to install the MultiVantage
Configuration Manager and the MultiVantage configuration on one Linux server and install
the MultiVantage Proxy Agent on a second Linux server.
SECURITY ALERT
During the installation, the installation wizard turns off the internal firewall
around the Linux server. This allows internal users to telnet to the Linux server
and to use their web browser to access the Windows client shortcuts. Do not turn
on the internal Linux firewall after the installation. Your network firewall
provides the needed security to prohibit access to the Linux server from outsiders.
The procedure to install or to upgrade the contents of the Linux Server Installation CD is
generally the same.
1. Ask all users to log off the system.
2. Login as “root” on the Linux server.
3. Insert the Avaya VisAbility Management Suite 1.3, Advanced Converged
Management, Linux Server Installation 1.3.x CD into the CD-ROM drive.
Result: The server opens a browser window.
4. Close the CD browser window.
5. Open a terminal emulation window. On the Red Hat Linux toolbar, click the
Terminal Emulation icon.
6. In the terminal emulation window, type cd /mnt/cdrom and press Enter.
7. In the command line, type ./vms_setup.bin and press Enter.
Result: The system starts the installation wizard.
