Hi, Thanks for the great work!

All the following sugestions are a result of lack of knowledge towards Linux but could proof interesting for everybody.

My server is also the firewall/router, and is located on one side direct to internet, and the lan on the other side.

Therefore, for me, I would be pleased with a choice to or (not to) install a second lan card and a dhcp server.

or command line install as Trixbox is doing for the dhcp server.

We'll include a DHCP server in Elastix 0.9.1.

Good suggestion

I've a second ethernet card installed on my elastix box and it works perfectly. I've only modified the /etc/sysconfig/network-script/ifcfg-eth1.
So, now, i've all my phones working in lan (192.168.x.0) and the router atttched to the other ethernet card (192.168.y.0)

The only thing you have to modify is the ONBOOT value.
If you edit the file (ifcfg-eth1) you'll see a string like this one:

Code:
ONBOOT=no
just change in:

Code:
ONBOOT=yes
and do a
Code:
service network restart
from the command prompt (or restart your box).

After that, start your browser, point it to the bx IP address, enter the admin user and password, go in System -> Network and you'll see the new card. Then you've to configure the gateway correctly and that's all...

Hope this helps.

Bye:)
