Asterisk at Home

My sipgate basic account provides successfully a SIP trunk for my private Asterisk/FreePBX running in a KVM-virtualized environment.

I downloaded the AsteriskNOW distribution and selected FreePBX. Later I used yum to update the system including Asterisk and the FreePBX update features in the frontend.

The Asterisk-related help at sipgate basic Hilfe is not yet very detailed, but it was sufficient to get a working setup. Especially the remark about the change in type for Asterisk 1.6 is crucial and helpful.

Now it’s time to look for economical hardware running Asterisk and I am not talking about appliances, since I want to install a customized Asterisk/FreePBX on my own, recommendations are welcome.
