I have a hosted (dedicated) server in the UK with Asterisk installed. As a newbie, in order to get to grips with Asterisk pstn capabilities, I am considering having the hosting company install a telephony interface card that connects to one analogue pstn line.
Has anyone got experience approaching a hosting company with regard to this area of concern? I am wondering do I really need this hardware or should the datacenter where the server resides already have facilities to cater for me. Yes I have already emailed the hosting company asking this (literally just before typing this one up), but it would be great to receive info and advice from the community.
