Hello and Happy New Year to all! Sorry if what I'm asking is too stupid or basic as I'm a total noob when it's about telephony (analog or digital), although I can pretty much hold my own in regards to Linux. My questions arised because I need to have a PBX/answering machinde/call redirector, etc but only with one analog line, and I need to know if I can do this with Elastix/Asterisk or if I need somthing else --and if that's so, then please suggest where to begin. More specific questions to begin are: 1- Can I use only an analog modem to implement it instead of the complex hardware always listed as required? (I'm thinking in buying a USB Modem so I can use it as such in any virtual machine like virtualbox or vmware). 2- I need Elastix to accept a set of rules defined by myself, when it reads the caller ID (analog line) and according to the number (for example if it's from a cell, or a local, or regional) redirect to a different set of pre-recorded messages (answering machine) or in case of really important predefined numbers, redirect to the actual phone connected to the output port of the modem, so I can answer the phone? 3- Maybe (depending again of the source call) record the voice of the caller in a file (lossy format as MP3 or OGG) an write me an email with the file appended. Is this doable in this scenario? In other words does Elastix and/or Asterisk and all its functions work with only an analog (preferably external USB) modem? If this is possibe but with a limited set of modems, please suggest actual makers/models and any details about it you are aware of. If not is this possible with another solution similar to Elastix? Thanks for any suggestions! KkrodD!!!
