I dont know why I didnt think of this before...

Surely a connected and working pap2t ($98 at DSE), could just have its PHONE1 port connected directly to an FXO port on an Asterisk box? Then the pap2t would give dialtone, the asterisk box would think it was just another POTS line, and pretty much everything would be plain sailing?

Wouldnt get any multiple connections on the line (but that doesnt bother me).

Is this so obvious that everyones doing it and im a noob for not thinking of it earlier, or is there some issues with doing this.

My first FXO card arrives next week, so i cant test this yet.

You're onto it Tony Laughing

That's exactly what I've been doing since Monday when we cut our Internet Telephony boxes over from physical Telecom lines to VFX.  Our telephony boxes don't use Asterisk, but they do have FXO and FXS ports and many of the same functions you have been talking about in your blog this afternoon (Hunt Groups, IVR, Dial Plans etc, etc).

In fact the system works so well, that I can send a fax through our telephony box at home, to the telephony box at the office and then out an FXO port into VFX and that works perfectly.

There's no reason I can think of why you shouldn't be able to connect your Asterisk FXO lines into your PAP2T Smile

wooohooo so now i need another FXO card... (so i have 1 for PSTN and 1 for WxC).

So i will use one port on my new Linksys WAG54gp2v2, the other as my main extension phone, then the pap2t can probably go in the ceiling, and have an extension going to the bedroom, and one to the garage...

Cheers!

Do your FXO cards only have one port?

Ours have four, which is kind of handy.

How much does a single-port FXO card cost for Asterisk?

I just paid $70 for one brand new x100p single port card. I cant seem to find another at that price though...

$70 is pretty cheap I would say Laughing

Does it plug into a PCI slot or how else do you connect it to your PC?
