Quick start

  • Users who want a quick start with VoIP are encouraged to start by installing a SIP proxy before installing a soft-PBX. The Real-time communications (RTC) quick start guide provides step-by-step instructions.

    • after installing the proxy, the phones, softphones and Asterisk all connect to each other through the proxy
    • the proxy can also be connected to the public Internet to enable federated calling between domains. It is not recommended to have Asterisk connected directly to the Internet without a proxy and/or TLS.

There is a separate page regarding sound quality for prompts at AsteriskSoundQuality.

Why not use packages?

This not seems be true anymore. Since Lucid, I was able to use the asterisk and asterisk related packages with success. The only problem was about the asterisk-mysql package, that needs to be rebuild (easy steps), as mentioned on the Current Page. - Duda Nogueira

Since these are scripts and recipes, the question naturally arises -- why not use packages for these installations? A very good question. In general, the existing packages (as of 17 March 2009) have not worked well to produce a working version. Hopefully one of the gurus with more knowledge of packaging may produce a set based on the script which will work.
