hello
thanks for suggestions.
i look the ww.voip-info.org but it is very much vast and for beginner, it is difficult to trace where to start.
now i just want ,one computer can dial another computer by using specific ip address.
in between them i want asterisk server so that in asterisk i can define the extension number . i want to configure simple pbx system in asterisk in LAN and escaping the external PSTN part.
i am going to use netmeeting as soft phone .is it ok for this configuration?
Also to dial one computer to another computer through asterisk using netmeeting sucessfully,how to install asterisk and which files are necessary to configure.
Because i install asterisk through sample and it contains lots of configuration files so please point out me which files are nedded and how to configure it.

thank for everybody helps

ok, if you can’t get the information you need to setup a base system from the free book or the wiki, then i don’t see how someone posting the same instructions here is going to help you.

if you want a system that does the basics for you then go look at asteriskathome.sf.net … download the ISO and burn it to a CD, then boot from that CD on a machine you’re happy to sacrifice for the cause, and an hour later you’ll be there. you’ll still need to configure client software and you’ll need to use the links provided earlier in this thread.

if that’s all still beyond you, you’ll need to hire a consultant.
