I was not sure whether to post this here or in the developer’s forum. If it needs to be there, please move this into the appropriate area.
I am about to install Asterisk (testing for a real estate company) on a two line (or more) box running Debian Sarge and need to know if a few things are possible. I have a database and a list of 40,000 zip codes, and a list of area codes that correspond to the zip codes. I want to set up the system to do one of two things.
a) Have a caller dial in, be prompted for a zip code, and be forwarded to a linked (in the database?) mailbox, or
b) Have a caller call in, the system check the number that they are calling from, prompt to verify, and then forward them to the appropriate corresponding mailbox.
I know that this is going to be a big project, and want to know if any of you have any suggestions. I prefer mysql, but can convert to use any other database software as long licensing costs aren’t outrageous.
This system is going to be used soley as a large mailbox, and we want to have our programmer create a web ui to check for populated mailboxes after authentication. Once again, does anybody have any suggestions?
