I have never setup Asteriks before, but we are getting alot of nusiace calls recently sometimes from with-held numbers.
I started to look to see what can be done about this and found a article where Asteriks was setup with a OBi110-UK (http://www.amazon.co.uk/OBi110-UK-Service-Bridge-Telephone-Adaptor/dp/B004XJCBGU/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top)
My understanding is I can connect by Sky telephone line into the OBi110-UK
device and then my standard non IP phone. The OBi110-UK will then be able to talk to a FreePX instance (I’m looking at using a Digital Ocean VPS for now).
Once thats setup I should then able to make unknown calls enter a number before they proceed to my phone and allow the phone ring. I also hope there is some sort of database of known margeting numbers that I can use to drop certain calls.
Is Asteriks able to do see hidden caller IDs? I didnt think it would be able to do but I thought I read somewhere it can.
Has anyone had experience of doing this and does it seem logical, or have I missed something?
