    I started with the latest trixbox install and spent far too many hours fixing many critical bugs. Just for kicks I tried Elastix and everything I needed just worked. Will not be looking back.

    The system is now in production. Being my first time installing an IP phone system there were a few challenges:

    - The Grandstream gateway is working but required some tuning to get the parameters right for Costa Rica.
    - I learned too late that the Aastra scripts for Elastix only works in 32bit systems (my Dell is 64bit). So I had to do some manual setup in the files created by the Endpoint Configuration in tftpboot to get all the features I wanted working (buttons and time zone).

    I have one remaining mystery. Every once in awhile the IVR answers and one hears a brief buzz/rattle for about a second and then continues without a problem. The buzzing does NOT correspond to a particular incoming line. It does not affect anything -- its just annoying.
