Hello,
I am not sure if anyone out there can help me?!!
here is the idea I have:
I have a VPN tunnel between 2 sites (say site 1 is NYC and site 2 is CA )
 I would like to be able to place a phone call over that VPN line using VOIP as an internal call (for free)
bypassing the phone company.

Anyone knows what hardware + software needed to get this done.

Thank you.

Please let me know if more info needed.

Asterisk (http://www.asterisk.org) or Trixbox (http://www.trixbox.org/) which is Asterisk as a complete linux installation which makes it much easier to install if you are not familar with Linux. Asterisk will run on practically any computer.

Then you will just need a couple of phones such as the Grandstream GXP-2000 or even software running on a pc.

There are interface cards you can buy to link it to a traditional phone system aswell.

What kind of phone system do you have now?  If you have an analog or Digital system you can probally just use the existing PBX and pickup a 100$ gateway depending on how many concurrent calls you want across the circut... just because you want to make a VoIP call may not mean you need a complete voip system...

also vs. using VPN ( assuming ipsec) which adds a lot of bandwidth in the encryption overhead you can use gateways that support srtp (secure media) which does both encryption and head optimization... and than just choose a good authentication protocol.  If you give more details on your office size and hardware I can suggest hardware...

If it is very small... you may want to look into something like skype... which does free on net calling and you just need to buy a headset...
