thanks for reply.

trixbox looks like a great system as it derives from asterisk@home.

pbx style system is way too much over kill for what i would like to use
for a home system with just 2 phones.

may be wanting 'voice mail' is going too far, and cutting back to just
answering and recording when i need it.

i have an auto answering system with 2 wireless sets. problem is that
playback at base unit has died, but i can still playback from wireless
sets.

any other suggestions with less features of trixbox???

thanks for your reply.

You could get a voice modem and use mgetty-voice. I answer four telephone
lines and a fax line with that setup and old USR modems.

You can even do thing like random outgoing messages, or messages
based on caller ID. (I had an interesting one for blocked caller
ID.) If you really get fancy, you can generate a web page that
displays the caller ID and information on the message, and has a
link you click to play it, or delete it.

I think if you google around, you will find a lot of PO'd people at
trixbox because of back doors they put in the software.

Also, I was under the impression that you wanted to use POTS stuff and
trixbox, asterisk, etc. is all VOIP which requires a whole new
investment in hardware.

did not look for such. but very interesting. will go back later and add
'back door' to search. [i do enjoy google]

most true. pots is what i am after.

i guess some missed what i was after and i did check them first. i read
about asterisk when it first came out, but was not familiar with trixbox
as to it being able to do pots also.

anyway, i did pull vocp and will have a go at it later tonight. will
get back with you when i have it installed and played with for a while.

thanks again.
