Hi All, could you please help. I am a newbie on this matter, now I want to install a PBX for my office. I have a IBM PC PIV 3Gb, HDD 80Gb RAM 256… 03 Analog telephone lines (PSTN) and some Extensions.
I have no experience of Asterisk, please advice:
- Is my PC able to ask as a PBX?
- Is my PC able to plug additional cards?
- Which Card should I need?
- Which version of Asterisk should I have?
- Where should I go to get information of configuration?
many thanks for your help!

I haven’t understand about your PC - but I think everything above 1 GHz should work well - especially if you don’t plane to use a lot of chanels.
You will need PCI slots to put your new digium card there.
I could suggest best for you is Wildcard TDM400P with 1 to 4 FXO (small red one) to connect to them PSTN line.
If you want to connect normal phone - you will need FXS (small green).
Thanks for your reply, I am intending to use an IBM PC A51… as * requirement, it should be OK.
Because I have no idear on this system, so as your suggestion, CO should connect to FXOs as trunk lines, and then FXSs are used for extensions, is it correct?
