I’m going to apologize in advance for this noob post. I’ve been reading about Asterisk for a long time but I’m stuck on a few stupid questions that I need answered by humans.
Can I use Asterisk to manage incoming/outgoing calls with just a POTS line? Do I need a VOIP service? I’m trying to avoid paying any fees. If I do need a VOIP service, which service that allows ANI spoofing do you recommend?
- POTS line at my house
- Linux machine running asterisk
- SIP box (ex-sunrocket gizmo, AC-211-SR unlocked)
- Too much free time
I want (for free or very little cost):
- Manage incoming calls
- Manage outgoing calls
- And my ultimate goal: caller ID spoofing
How I think I need to have my equipment setup:
POTS line -> line-in on the SIP box
line-out on the SIP box -> wall-jack out to the rest of the house
SIP box on the ethernet with it’s own IP
