VoiP with no screen / monitor off.


Hello,

I'm planning to setup a home Linux Server. It will do all kind of things like, firewall, proxy, digi-tv etc.

In the end the PC would not have a monitor connected to it.

One nice service on home a server like this, would be VoiP

Maybe Skype or something like that.

But a practical problem. How do I answer incoming calls without a display

Has anyone come up with an inexpensive solution?

I don't want to buy a 50$ phone to do the job, well not now anyway
Maybe later if I find my self actually using VoiP allot

Outgoing calls is not that important, as I could turn on my client PC and make the call from it.

All I can think of is using a KVM switch if the server is close by to your client PC.
