Exclusive Asterisk P2P network allows free long-distance VoIP callsFriday, November 03, 2006
The goal: Free long-distance calls by joining an exclusive P2P network of Asterisk boxes using DUNDi. Once you're set up, you'll be able to use your standard telephone to make local calls in any area code represented by a member of the network.
What you'll need:
- Free copy of Asterisk
- Sipura SPA-3000 PSTN / VoIP Gateway
- Broadband Internet connection
- Second phone line (optional but recommended)
- Degree in Geek-ology, or the ability to follow instructions
Warning: Be mindful of local laws when you set this up, or you too may end up on the crime page of your country's newspaper.
Conclusion: It's admittedly not the most practical system ever, but this DIY project is guaranteed to satisfy your inner geek. Have fun!
