I’m looking into Asterisk to provide a PBX environment for a small home office. I’m by no means a linux sys-admin, but comfortable enough with linux to get Asterisk up and running. In almost other respects, I’m a complete newbie. I’ve been looking around, and it looks like Asterisk is exactly what I’m looking for, but I’ve been unable to find the information–or maybe I have, and just not comprehended it–on one thing.
Once I get the digital side of the equipment set up – the linux install, asterisk and all the phones configured, how to I hook that setup to the POTS line?
Like I said, I’m a complete newbie to VoIP applications, equipment and terminology. If someone could just point out “Here’s what you need n00b”, I’d appreciate it.
