Asterisk - VOIP PBX for your home or business
Louis Ross and Gary Oliver
At PEAK Internet Services - Corner of 15th and Western in Corvallis.
Use the South Entrance facing the south parking lot.
A New Phone system from scratch --
With a linux box, a couple of cards, a bit of software and
a network, you can build a phone system that allows you to
use the Internet to carry Voice Over IP traffic, which
has a direct connection to the telephone system.
Asterisk is a Open Source package that will turn your
linux machine into a phone switch. Add to it a SIP
phone, or a Soft phone, and you have the making
of a PBX system that is very powerful.
Gary and Louis will show how to install Asterix and
what the set up in order to create a PBX for your
home. This allows you to use your computer as
a phone. It allows you to take a trip to the coast,
and have the phone on your motel room network ring
as an extension to your home phone number.
We will talk about things like:
Can I have a voice mail box that sends me email?
Can I have an extension on my home phone that forwards
to my cell phone when I am not at home
Can I set my phone never to accept a phone call from
Can I hook my MP3 collection to my phone for
music on hold?
Can I program how my phone works based on time slots?
Do you want a more flexible phone system, come
see how you can make one out of your linux machine.
Come Join us for Beer after the meeting at Clod Feldters.
We try to get there between 8:30 and 9:00.
