FreePBX or [email protected]

Hi.

Just exploring VOIP and was wondering should I use FreePBX or Asterisk atHome ? Is there a comparison of the two ?

Cheers!

AAH was not renamed to FreePBX, AAH is a Linux ISO that one can
download and install that includes FreePBX and various other
utilities. You can install Asterisk youself and then install FreePBX
on top of it or download the AAH ISO that has everything included.

Again AAH is not FreePBX but includes it in a easy to use ISO.

If you are new to the game with Asterisk I would download AAH and
install it but wait until next week when the new version is out.

FreePBX is modular and can be updated more easily, but if you read the
lists, FreePBX isn’t quite production ready. It’s close, however, so I’d
recommend [email protected] 2.7 or wait for FreePBX 2.1

Let add this…
If you have a spare system do the AAH…

AAH will OVERWRITE your harddrive and install a “ready to use” asterisk system with a GUI (2.8 has freepbx I think)
current AAh upgrade path is to reinstall form ISO/…next release will based on modules so upgrade will be download and install new module packs

Freepbx can be install on a asterisk system
If you have a linux box up and running now and want to play then install asterisk and freepbx on the current sysem.

Ok, I was confused as well in this issue, however after long reading I got to know the following; please corrent me if i’m wrong:

  • Asterisk is a standalone Software PBX that can be installed on top of linux OS, that is managed through CLI and contains now GUI interface.

  • [email protected] is a packaged ISO file that contains Cento Linux OS, Asterisk, and Web interface to manage Asterisk (AMP) which is known now as FreePBX

  • FreePBX as per documentation is the new name of AMP (Asterisk Management Portal) A web GUI for Asterisk.

Regards,

That’s all correct.

Lee,

This is NOT correct. [email protected] is a FULL DISTRIBUTION of Asterisk that INCLUDES FreePBX. The Asterisk Management Portal was renamed to FreePBX.
