Set Up a PBX

Maximum PC - - PUT YOUR PI TO WORK -

A PBX—OR SWITCHBOARD— is a great thing to play with. While you can hook up a phys­i­cal phone line to your Pi via hard­ware, it’s more prac­ti­cal to route a SIP-linked num­ber (from the likes of Skype) or a Google Voice ac­count, which trans­lates PSTN to VoIP for you. As­ter­isk, a sea­soned PBX, can route calls through your home, deal with con­fer­ence calls, and more—and the in­clu­sion of the FreePBX web front end makes its ded­i­cated dis­tro more fath­omable than set­ting it up from scratch. http://rasp­berry-as­ter­isk.org
