Hi, i run IT for a small business and we have our business phone lines, then we have a single specific customer line, i would like to put a asterisk server on that customer line so that the first thing a customer hears is a option for directions or hours, or they can speak to a sales rep.
I am new to Asterisk, i have just watched the Systm episoide about it, so i have a few questions,
-first just for my one line setup, what would be the best hardware to use, and can i just use a basic modem or does that just not work.
-second is there a windows asterisk, because i have a computer running Ubuntu, but i get a “make command not recognized” when i try to install it using the terminal,
Thanks in advance any help would be much appreciated and our employees would be very happy not to have to give every other call directions to our location, which is my primary purpose for Asterisk.
