Before I start I have to say that I searched but I just couldn’t find some answers, maybe because they are too stupid.
I will try to setup a voice solution for my job - small company -, but I’m a real beginner at this subject - also a trainee -, I wonder if some of you could help me with 4 really simple - stupid - questions (thank you for your time):
- Do I really need a expensive telephone card in my computer? It’s not that expensive, but it will cost almost the same thing as the used cpu I’m buying.
- I will have an analog line, so I just need to connect the phone line to a card and it’s done (I have just one line)?
- Once connected, the only thing to do is connect the server to a hub connected with WAN, computers (with softphones) and digital phones, so everything will work (after configurating extensions)? (Don’t need any special stuff, cabes or etc.?)
- If I don’t want to buy that card - at least not now -, I read asterisk can be used as skype gateway. So If I have and skype phone number, asterisk on a cpu and connect that cpu to my hub, will it redirect the calls to a specific computer or digital phone? All computers will need skype or can I use softphones?
If you know any of these answer I’ll be thankfull if you help. Again, thank you for you time.
