All this Asterisk talk has piqued my interest!
At my home/business, I have a needed for two or more intercom stations.
The station sites are ~2000' apart, but are on my LAN. I used to use
some unusual telephones that gave intercom service when two telephone
lines were attached. At one time, I had 6 or 8 of those telephones;
they have all died and seem to be not replaceable. Especially if I can
get voip working on my satellite (net2dish/dirceway) broadband, I would
like to drop one of my phone lines. Or both. Alas, my experiments
with Skype indicate that the latency is insufferable.
So, here are my questions:
1) Can Asterisk give me intercom service over my LAN. I'm almost sure
the answer to that is "yes"; if so, what hardware do I need?
2) I assume I can use regular ole telephone handsets for the intercom?
3) Once I have the intercom service setup, is it trivial to then use
the intercom stations to access my telephone line?
It seems attractive to find preconfigured and tested boxes to provide
the above capabilities. Comments? Recommendations?
