I am now waiting for my server room to be ready and also applying E1 line. So I can buy a dell server (non virtualised) and Digium E1 isdn card.
But I like to give freepbx a shot. So i can get better experience on this.
I plan to install freepbx distro on a desktop computer (core i7 with 4GB RAM). However i could not find an affordable telephony analog 1 port card. All at least 4 ports.
Can I actually use the phone modem port (built-in motherboard or modem card attached to the motherboard) which I can plug in RJ11 telephone line to test out Freepbx/Asterisk? To test inbound and outbound calls?
I’m not sure, as I know that is used for those days dial up modem. Not sure can do telephony stuff.
Or is it a must to buy a telephony FXO card?
Any help? Thanks.
