Exclusive Asterisk P2P network allows free long-distance VoIP calls

Friday, 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
How to join: Details for installing Asterisk, configuring DUNDi to become a peer, and hooking everything together can be found at VoIP Syndicate.

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!

Is this like skype? Where everyone joins using the same software and connects like limewire, but using a phone?
