More Asterisk Apps

  • Setup a softphone for your use with Asterisk
  • Try out the “Dial” application both through the Dialplan and with “call files”. (Be responsible)


  • Zoiper (the sofphone software I’m using) doesn’t seem to happy with SIP; it will not play the audio or accept any extension. IAX on the other hand, works like a charm.
  • I can finally record & playback phone calls, which is pretty exciting in it self.
