I talked my boss into allowing me to setup an Asterisk box and get a few
SIP phones to evaluate.
Linux wise, I'm just a little beyond a beginner. I can install a
system, read man pages, explain the filesystem hierarchy, setup
permissions, use apt/yum to add/remove programs, and I understand most
of the terminology. But, I am by no means an expert or even an
I would like something that has some sort of gui for basic
configuration, so that I am not the only one that was able to do manage
it. And, I would also like something that I could outsource the
management/maintenance of if the thing grew into a huge, nasty
company-wide initiative (slim chance of that).
I'm thinking about starting out with one of the Asterisk distros:
Digium's AsteriskNOW <http://www.asterisknow.org/>
What about running it inside VMWare, so I could start it out on my
workstation and then move it to a bigger server when needed. Would this
be a good(tm) thing?
What do you guys suggest?
