I discovered Asterisk yesterday. I read the Future Of Telephone today. It all sounds interesting.
I would like to setup Asterisk for my home. I have one POTS line with 2 phones (one upstairs and one downstairs) that I want to use. I understand that I need to buy an interface card, probably something like the Digium TDM2400P.
What I don’t understand is, broadly speaking, is how this works.
I connect a telephone line from a wall outlet to the interface card. Ok, now what? If I have 2 phone in the house, will Asterisk somehow be able to ring either or both phones? If so, how? If I place an outgoing call from a phone, will it route thru the Asterisk app? If so, how?
Thanks for any help.
