I just need a little help with my VOIP network. I have a SIP proxy server and 4 SIP phones connected to the server. Locally everything works great no problem. I want the Asterisk PBX to connect to the PSTN to I can make outgoing calls and recieve calls as well. There is an option on the SIP server for PBX. I just want to know if I buy the FXO card and connect to PSTN network I am using the Lines thats provided by the telephone provider so that means I have to pay them the charges. I short I have some questions:
I am here in canda and the PSTN lines are owned by Bell if I route calls to PSTN Do I have to pay them for same long distance charges since I am using Bell lines?
Is there an alternat way to overcome that?
I am just a little confused please clarify…
