Turnkey Home PBX System

7 03 2005

This is so cool. We have a PBX here at Homeport, but it’s a very old hybrid digital/analog system that works ‘okay’, but the handsets are rapidly falling apart, and it really just needs to be trashed.
I’ve been watching The Asterisk Project for quite a while – it being an opensource linux based PBX system, but haven’t jumped into trying it because the rampup / investment in hardware process was more than I was ready to deal with.
Now someone’s put together Asterisk@Home, a pre-packaged bootable CD that will install Asterisk for you, and do all the basic configuration, including setting up the web interface and everything.
Tempting… tempting…
