Hi Franxez,

If you compiled the from source you can do a "make samples" to install some very well documented /etc/asterisk/*.conf files that should point you in the right direction.

Let me know if you need some more context help.

Interface cards

You only need an interface card with asterisk if you wish to interface with POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service). Without an interface card asterisk is limited to SIP (VOIP) only. So it depends on what your goal is. If you are using VOIP phones and you only wish to connect via VOIP you do not need an interface card. If you want to connect a regular telephone, or connect to a regular telephone line, then you need one or more interface cards.

Yes. As they said if you want to connect with traditional PSTN lines you need fxo module asterisk card or if you are going to use ISDN El links you need E1 supported asterisk card.

pc to pc --> no need cards just configure the sip
pc to traditional phone lines(voice only) --> fxo module cards
pc to 3g phones (video and voice) ---> E1 supported cards
