How to use asterisk as Softphone

I M intersted to know that how we can use asterisk as softphone , i have centos (non gui environment ) and asterisk installed

There are command line softphones like linphone and pjsip also we can make calls using asterisk cli using originate (ami interface ) but i need help regarding how asterisk can act as softphone , register with other asterisk server and make calls


Asterisk is can not act as a soft phone. It’s more of a PBX. It can register with other soft switches and receive calls but you would hav to set in the dial plan the call flow. You can have asterisk play different sound files, music etc.
