    You can only do VoIP using software. If you want to use digital TDM or analogue lines or handsets then you will have to install some special cards. The obvious choice for a VoIP PBX is Asterisk, but the Windows version of Asterisk is nowhere near as good as the Linux version (or as well supported by the Asterisk community).

    The best Windows based PBX I know of is the Televantage, but it is pricey and I think it needs hardware even for VoIP.

    Are you sure you want a PBX? What is the application? There are several media server type products such as the Intel HMP that don't need hardware and might be configurable as a pseudo-PBX.

    Hope that helps. By the way you might get more response in the VoIP Topic Area. Its under Networking.
