Hi, I installed Trixbox and looking for information about the settings and found Tony's guide which point to another site which is dead. Is anybody have a copy of it or where I can find?

Was going to relocate my blog, changed location of some articles, which are probably a bit out of date by now, but I will recover and re-post them here somewhere.

Many thanks Tony. As I'm new in this one, I need this article very much. May I ask you a question. I already did install Trixbox, but nothing else. Where I have to put the Trixbox?

1. TCL modem -> Trixbox -> Linksys WRT54G -> home network

OR

2. TCL modem -> Linksys WRT54G -> Trixbox/home network

What I want from my Trixbox is to use our Nokia wi-fi mobiles to get the landline(vfx voip) calls, instead of landline phones. I hope I explained clear.

trixbox machine just connects to your router like example 2.

Just we aware that if you plan on using your Nokia outside your home network (ie from a WiFi hotspot somewhere) you will have to make a few simple changes to your trixbox settings to get around the NAT issues that will result.

Thank you. Outside my home network I will use Nokia as a normal mobile (Vodafone connection). But your suggestion is very interesting. I'll keep it in mind

You can connect from WiFi or 3G. I've used WiFi hotspots in Australia quite regularly to make phonecalls. VoIP over 3G can be a bit hit and miss, if you're stationary on a site with good capacity call quality is fine, start moving around and you start to get some packet loss which isn't good.

To be honest I'm newbye in this subject and have no idea what means "VoIP over 3G". My understanding is that mobile has wi-fi which connects to Access Point? Why mobile will use 3G connections?

VoIP can connect over 3G or WLAN connections.

This is what I thought but was not sure for 100%. I think in my condition it will use WLAN(my Linksys WRT-54G). I hope I'm correct.
