Quote from: Fabius on January 28, 2015, 11:27:08 AMI am now on C-NET. My numbers are1-821-9905 and 1-821-9906. Those of you on C-NERT fell free to call me so I can make sure incoming call function.(at reasonable times). Right now I have a desktop payphone on one line and a modern TT phone on the other. The payphone receives calls but can't call out because it is only programed for 7 digit dialing. I plan to hook up both lines to my Panasonic 616 but I've run out of line cords. Eventually I'd like to hook up something "cool" to one of the lines, such as a recording or a live feed of some kind.

Quote from: compubit on January 31, 2015, 04:42:16 PMWell, it's time for me to get started.So far: I have built an Asterisk/FreePBX server on a Raspberry Pi (no cost to me, as I had them already, but new would have been about $35 for the Pi, $5 for the memory card, $5 for the power supply, and $10 for the case. Any SD card over 4GB will work (I had an 8GB, but are fairly cheap at the local MicroCenter), using an old cell phone charger for the power supply (but can often find 1A chargers on sale for $5), case can be as extravagant as desired, or very basic (or none at all). Software is downloaded from the web, did the configuration over two evenings and for ~$50 and a couple of hours, Ihave a PBX on my networkI just received the Grandstream HT702 ATA off of Amazon today, and have it connected to the Asterisk Server and am able to call the other extensions I have setup (2 softphones - free apps - and 2 landline phones). Note that the HT702 does NOT support rotary dialing, even though advertised on Amazon as supporting it (guess I should have double checked before purchasing). Regardless, it should easily work with my Panasonic KX-TA624 system (which does the Pulse to Touch Tone conversion).Now I need to get connected to C*Net - have my block reserves, just not quite sure what to do next...Jim
Quote from: Daniël Oosterhuis on October 22, 2015, 08:01:54 AMI find C*NET to be really intriguing! I do Network Administration at college, so this fits right in with it. I could document everything too, as my college allows us to present things we do ourselves if it is related to our studies. Add a good presentation and I should be able to score up some extra study points!
