I am aware that running * on a virtual machine is bad mojo, but i was wondering if there was a good way to setup * on a VM and simulate a production environment. My hope is yes but my suspicion is no.
The purpose is to allow me as an * semi-noob to gain more experience with the setup configuration and administration of an * pbx system withough having to have the expensive hardware to test it with.
I dont even care if the call quality is not up to production snuff, as long as i can tell what people are saying, or that they are saying anything at all i would be happy to play around with it just for running tests.
What would be awesome is a way to simulate the various digium cards (maybe via software) and run some “pretend calls” on them… like a pre-recorded test incoming call.
I know this is asking alot but it seems like it would be a wicked powerful tool to help the non-god learn alot more in a safe, risk free environment.
