As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I am looking to setup a customizable home system.
I live in canada and currently get Rogers Home phone / internet / cable.
What I want to do is setup an Asterisk PBX system or something alike, where it will have an answering machine (i have no answering machine) and an online interface to check messages and such. In the future adding possibly extensions for kids phone (if i choose to go down that route).
The problem I have is I do not have a clue where to start. Rogers came in and setup my phone to run through the normal phone lines and I have 1 phone that has 3 headsets which is fine for now as I am trying to setup an answering machine.
I can get my hands on an old P2500 or P3 computer which should be fine for this experiment but in terms of setting it up I have no clue what to read and such since all I have read is to setup with a VOIP provider which I donno if I do or do not have since I just want to setup an answering machine.
Hope someone can help.
