I was planning to setup my first Asterisk server using an AVM FritzCard PCI V2.0 for ISDN connectivity. The problem is, it’s an ISDN Point-to-Point connection (“Anlagenanschluss”), and I just stumbled over this statement on AsteriskGuru:[quote]Another big difference between active and passive ISDN cards is in working on Point to Point (P2P) (see below) configured lines. A passive card like the AVM Fritz PCI cant’ work on P2P configured lines.[/quote]
Does anybody have a clue, why ISDN P2P is not possible with such a passive card, or is that info already outdated? AVM is providing Linux CAPI drivers, that’s all I know by now.
I really didn’t want to invest in another ISDN card, especially as I have that FritzCard already laying around here.
