Getting started with asterisk on PC with Linux and use for I


#1

All I want to do is to be able to receive a call from any DTMF phone and execute specific scripts (php scripts to Mysql) depening on numbers pressed from the phone dialing this number.
I was hoping to find a easier solution then Asterisk, so I’m open for alternatives.


#2

The AGI interface for Asterisk will allow you to do what you want. PHP and numerous other languages are supported.


#3

So would the development kit be enough to start with, or do you recommend another board ?


#4

Also, which linux distribution do you recommend ?
