    What VoIP do you wish to use?

    Author Comment

    grblades ... thanks for your comments. To tell you the truth I am totally new in this (VOIP) field. I am reading some material on the net and now know a little about what it is and how it works but my knowledge is still very shallow on the number of solutions available. I would really appreciate your help if you guide me through this maze. I have increased the number of poits also. Many thanks once again.

    OK so what is it that you wish to do?
    You could install Asterisk (see and which will allow you to connect to different voip providers.
    You would also need some sort of phone which could be a hardware one or a software client like X-Lite, SJphone or DiAX.
    If you also get a FXO telephone card ( is what I use) then you could also link asterisk to your analogue telephone line.
