Asterisk: best method to config routing for asterisk VOIP network to main network
Posted on 2006-06-12
I'm currently deploying my asterisk server on my main network. My concern is, I'm setting up the Asterisk server on a vlan. However, i need the asterisk server to be able to connect to the main gateway to access the internet to send vmails to the configured addresses. Or, is there's an alternate way to route directly from the asterisk server to network where the exchange server sits without needing access to the internet?
main network address: 10.0.0.x/255.255.255.0
Exchange Server: 10.0.0.5
DNS Server: 10.0.0.6
pix 501 firewall: 10.0.0.1/255.255.255.0
VOIP VLAN Network:
Asterisk Server (CentOS 3.0): 10.0.10.10/255.255.255.0
Linksys SP941 Phones: 10.0.10.20-10.0.10.32/255.255.255.0
Main Switch: DLink DES-3550 48 ports: Ports 20-34 is setup for VLAN for VOIP, 10.0.10.x/255.255.255.0 and the rest of the ports are configured for 10.0.0.x/255.255.255.0
what's my best config to route?
on the top my head, i assume i need something like a cisco 2600 router with 2 ethernet ports, is that correct?
thanks in advance.
