Setup VOIP server???


Good Day,

I want to set up a VOIP server in my home server farm.

What do I need exactly other than Regular phone line at home? Server running Asterisk? Adapter for the Server? and what else???

Anyone???

A link also will do, thanks,

I want to set up my home VOIP to call overseas and configure it possibly like a Phone Card setup. I will be the only one using it.

Also see -> http://forums.asterisk.org/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=83997

Thanks in advance.

Hello Fcukinyahoo,
Perhaps this will help you, it seems to be a tutorial on how to set up this kind of system, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94Mbgpcxaj0.
Hope it helps,
Animeman

asterisk + a linsys sipura device.

easiest setup is using SIP + sipura to connect it to your existing PSTN line (if you have one)
if not, you can register a SIP account through asterisk config with something like callcentric or whatever provider you use.

My current setup is the following:

1. Sipura device connected to my pstn line.
2. sip clients (both softphones and devices that support sip through wifi/lan)
3. voicemail/fwd set
4. Callcentric free account that transfers calls comign to my pstn to my mobile (i have calcentric app installed) when im not home.

Phone Line -> Sipura -> Asterisk Server -> Callcentric

So in such scenario lets say calling from NY to Paris, I start dialing a Paris phone number, it goes through the Sipura, into the Asterisk server through configurations, then to Callcentric associated device to take the call in Paris?

Please correct me if I m wrong with this setup.

I m new to VOIP and I m having a hard time to understand the hierarchy. I m surprised there is not detail oriented documentation about this topic. I have been looking for a while now. As always once start and finish this setup will probably write one and share.

Thanks in advance.

Well i somewhat agree, there's a few "a to z" sort of documentation though there's loads of documentation explaining bits and pieces..

As for the scenario you suggested, well it depends.. your scenario can go two ways:

1. If you're forwarding your NY call to someone in paris outside of your asterisk LAN (mobile or other landline, callcentric subscriber)
then that MIGHT be the way to go (not advised)
2. If the destination is someone within the asterisk network then you just configure your asterisk to have an attendant OR to direct calls coming for a specific extension to a specific person (softphone/ip phone tht supports sip)

tell me the exact scenario you'd like to accomplish and i'll see how i can help make it easier for you to configure.

Sup homie.

What you need to grab is called "Brekeke Sip Server".

I've setup many and use this for VoIP.

http://www.brekeke.com/sip/
^
Installation is easy. I've done installs on both Windows XP and Centos 5.6 32/64bit. Then get a DID and phone.
Instructions is all in the docs on the website.
