** Disclaimer - Noob here, so please forgive my ignorance.
I’ve read and then read some more trying to educate myself on *. I think I’ve grasped most of it, but I’m still a little confused on my hardware/config needs for my home/home office * box.
Here is what I want/need/plan on:
1 * or TrixBox
[i]3 DID’s( 1 for home #, 1 for my home office #, 1 for my wife’s home office #)
2 Analog Phones (1 for home, 1 for wife) and 1 SIP phone (or maybe soft phone)
Plan on using VoicePulse (or similar ITSP) for IAX/SIP trunk to “connect to the world”, and acquiring the DIDs from them[/i]
I know I need a digium card with at least 2 FXS ports for the Analog phones…
…but do I need 3 FXO ports for the 3 DID’s?
…Or is that just if I were planning to connect to a PSTN line?
…I’m thinking all I need to connect to the ITSP is an ethernet port (and a proper conf file)?
…or since I have 3 #'s (DIDs) each one needs to be “mapped” to an FXO? If so, would a TDM824B fulfill my needs?
Will 1 * or TrixBox handle 3 seperate dialplans? For instance…
…if someone calls our home number it rings 6 times and then goes to a general voicemail box
…if someone calls my office # it goes to an auto-attendent, where 2 or the extensions can be dialed,
…if someone calls my wifes # it rings 6 times and then goes to her personal mailbox
Is this possible? Am I totally confused? Please help!
Thanks for answering my questions and keeping me somewhat sane.
