[quote=“kolberda”]Could I get some clarification on RedStapler’s response? [/quote] Let me try
[quote]The X100P will only allow POTS input, correct? Does it work something like this?
POTS --> [ X100P in RedHat box to NIC] --> to VoIP Soft Phone[/quote] Correct, the VoIP soft phone can be called by extension, based on the Asterisk dialplan
[quote]In other words, you can’t plug a POTS line AND a analog phone into the X100P. Correct?[/quote] This is correct as well. One comment: The X100P has two analog jacks. One for line in, the other is a line out. You can connect an analog device, however when you call from the outside, both Asterisk and the analog device will “ring”. Which device ever picks up first, takes the call. This line out is not “in” Asterisk, it just daisy-chains your analog device and Asterisk, similar to what an external modem does. This analog device is outside Asterisk, is not visible and you cannot “do” anything with it.
I hope this helps. If (just in case) you need to connect an analog device “in” Asterisk, you need an ATA (analog telephone adapter) or a real Digium card with an FXO and and FXS module.
