I'm quite new in Asterisk and voIP. I'm trying to implement a

I'm planning to install Asterisk on a server, and install GnomeMeeting
on every user's PC.

Is it possible? Any similiar experience? Thank you very much.

I've literally just done exactly the same system in my office.

I've set up a small Mandriva based nfs-root, Asterisk server with three FXO interfaces.

We're self contained in the office, so currently no connection to external VoIP systems (just our incomming land lines).

As far as softphones, we've got Windows clients and Linux clients in the office. I've fiddled with kphone, sflphone and various others.

kphone = functional but lacking features.
slfphone = crashed all the time and cvs=highly unstable at the mo'

So far gnomemeeting-opal has been the most stable and featureful. I've not tried video or instant messaging tho'. But as far as calls go it's been fine.

I had to upgrade my Mandriva shipped libalsa for it to work properly tho' (just used the cooker versions).

If by chance you do use Mandriva/Mandrake, I have SRPMS etc. If anyone wants to host them on the CVS rpms page, please contact me.

Feel free to discuss your Asterisk setup with me too if you like Thomas.

All the best
