Very new to asterisk (read hours)
I want to setup a test/evaluation server of asterisk that could service 1 to 4 work areas.
I plan to install on an existing Fedora x64 machine and need a little guidance.
Here is the desired configuration:
single analog incoming voice (pots) line
work stations would be conected via soft voip running on various pc’s or tablets
I’d like voice messaging with the capibility to forward messages via email as mp3
provide custom user messages & phone menus to incoming calls for ea extension
optional fax capability via separate printer and scanner
The server is a quad core 3ghz xeon w 8gb memory running Fedora 14 w/several hundred gig of disk space raid 5.
Can I use basically any old 56k win modem (wintel -pci) or do really need to find a higher end modem card?
I’m limited on pc slot space, with perhaps 1 free pci-x, pci or a pci-e slot, could a USB modem be utilized instead?
any online guides on how to set all this up?
