I have installed Asterisk@home 2.8 in CentOS with 2.8 Intel Pentium 4 and
I am using TDM400P with 1 FXO and 1 FXS.

only my mobile phone can call my POTS, and vice versa.

I was comparing two method tests.
1st method test
Without Asterisk and TDM400P involved. It was a regular analog phone
called mobile, and vice versa.
Mobile called analog phone - analog phone rang after first rang on mobile.
Analog phone called mobile - analog phone rang after 5 seconds.
2nd method test
With Asterisk and TDM400P card involved. POTS plugged to FXO. Analog
phone plugged to FXS.
Mobile called analog phone - analog phone rang between first and second
rang on mobile.
Analog phone called mobile - I dialed my mobile number, then IVR played to prompted password. I entered password with #. After 8 seconds, I heard rings.
My question is how come 2nd method test, phone rang a little slower ? Is that a way to tweak it to be the same as in 1st method test ?
