Very true !
100 MBits, full duplex !
ANd yes, same setup here:
40-ish sip phones, a few faxes on ATAs and softmodem (IAX modem on hylafax), TE110 interface jumpered to E1 (Europe).
A charm… /drool
You might want to read EXSESSIVLY all documentation, wikis and forums.
Asterisk is a really GREAT pbx with endless possibilitys.
I sucked up every bit of infos for almost 3 month and still learn every single day about asterisk and some tricks !
The file holding your sip confguration (nomen est omen)
The config for your zap interface, your T1 card
The brain of asterisk: What to do how and wheren and where and why
The dialplan, the heart of all callprocessing.
You will curse, you will cry, you wish you were a fish only worrying about food…and never choosed to setup an asterisk box, you will miss sleep, you will get divorced: But at the end you will have one of the best and functionrich PBX out there…
