I’ve heard about Asterisk for a long time, but I never really read much into it until someone passed me a link to a Kevin Rose’s video on Asterisk. With the additional information that the video has given me, I have a clearer picture now and would like to start implementing an Asterisk system at home.
For starters I’d like to just setup a PSTN line -> Asterisk -> Analog Phone.
I understand that FXO = Foreign Exchange Office and FXS = Foreign Exchange Station.
From reading up, FXO basically is the line between your PSTN network and your server and FSX is the line from your server to your Analog Phone.
So if I’d like to have Asterisk process all my incoming calls and then re-route them to my analog phone, I’d need a FXO and FXS card connected to my Asterisk server?
And that if I only have an FXO port connected to my server, all my incoming call will be processed by Asterisk and just end there?
Is this true?
