Just wanted to say that you CAN install Asterisk and get it working.
I have been lurking here for a couple of weeks now… Just reading and learning. EVERYTHING you need to know to get it working is here.
I have had a Trixbox setup going now for 3 days…
It installed flawlessly. The information to configure it is all here.
I got a SIP trunk and a DID. Everything is working perfectly.
Using X-lite softphone.
So don’t give up or get frustrated. The info is all here.
I just tested using softphone from the house next door over the internet. Setup as an extension. No problem.
Next I need to figure out faxing…I need to be able to send and receive faxes thru the SIP number… This is great software. KUDOS to the developers.
