can you give us more details?
what do you mean by "manage 4 clients phones"?
"all on the same DSL phone line" ??

plus what are you using to run asterisk ,, is it a box .. or a server you already installed??

Hi memo_tnt, i try to explain it better :-)

- "manage 4 clients phones"= on the single DSL phone line Asterisk will manage 4 "physical" analogic phones (each phone must be used by a single agent)
- "all on the same DSL phone line"= i have two phone lines, but i have to use one of them (the other i want to plug a FAX machine in analogic method -without Asterisk)

- you need an analog CARD i.e diguim TDM410P (PCI) or AEX410P (PCI-E) with  FXS modules depends on number of lines you want to use ...on your case you need 1 ..
if you need a pure line with best voice quality you need also an echo canceler ..

- for the clients: if they are on the same network and close to you ,, you can use another card as above but with 4 FXO modules 1 per each without an echo canceler .. then connect each phone by RJ11 to its consistence port .. my mean: you need to assign each phone with an extension and assign it to single port of the card ...

or you can use an ATAs connecting them through RJ45 ...

i wish this clear for you
