Hi,

I'm searching for a (of course cheap) VoIP solution with the following
requirements.

- adequate replacment for existent analog phone
- answerphone
- being able to do calls from a computer (LAN)
- being able to call by hardware-phone
- queue for incoming calls
- piping the calls to other internal members
- Using the existent DSL Connection (I don't want a Gateway for my LAN
directly into the telephone-net, ISDN/analog)
- managed call-back service

Is Asterisk in connection with a SIP-Accout (e.g. sipgate.com) the
right solution? Can Asterisk handle multiple Phone-Members within my
LAN?

Thanks in Advance!!!
Jochen

Asterisk can do everything you've listed here. Some of the items will have a
bit of a do-it-yourself component though.

I have a question here:
Don't you need a media gateway to route the voice traffic no matter
what?
If you do not need a media gateway, what would be the alternative way
to route the voice traffic?
Thanx in advance.

Unless you will only be using IP phones (and talking to other people who use
IP phones) you will need a media gateway.

With the appropriate hardware, Asterisk can serve that function. However, in
many cases it is simpler to pay for the services of one or more external
commercial VoIP providers.
