Mike got a couple of "Digium Quad Tdm400P" PCI Phone Cards from a friend so we decided to use a spare computer that was in our apartment and turn it into a PBX.

Were running Trixobx to manage the PBX, and all of the configuration is done through a webGUI.

So far we have 3 phones up and running. Extension:

  • 111 Mike
  • 112 Dave
  • 115 Server Room

All of the phones can call each other. If a message is left on a persons voicemail it will be forwarded to their email. Each phone can also order a wake up call!
