The idea with open source is that the coding is free, and the money is earned by providing support. The business case for a VOIP solution usually is positive, even after including those costs.

I could use some help configuring Asterisk. I have installed Asterisk 1.8 on a desktop running Ubuntu 11.04 but don't know how to set it up. All of the directions that I can find, including the ones that I used to install Asterisk (http://letitknow.wordpress.com/2011/...-server-11-04/), don't make much sense to me.I would like to setup the browser interface so that I can configure the system from there. How do I do that? Once I do, will I be able to do all of my configuration from there?The computer has a static IP of 10.10.10.151.I'd like to setup several users with usernames like 101, 102, 102, 201, 202, 203, etc., some listen only and some listen and talk. The users will also have passwords.I'd like to allow multiple users to be able to dial 1 to get to one conversation, dial 2 to get to a separate conversation, etc.Can anyone help me with this?
Thanks so much.
