Obviously the software itself is not 'for sale', its freely downloadable.

I want to upgrade to a new box to run my Trixbox PBX setup. The old one is fine, its just a bit ugly, and though it does the Trixbox side of things well, I also want to run other extra non-telephony services on the system. I figured I would help fund the excercise by selling the old box off

I figured someone who wants to get into Trixbox, but is a bit scared of the whole Linux thing, and getting it set up right, might like to buy a preconfigured, fully working system?

The old unit:

An AMD Duron 850MHz with 256MB of SDRAM, 32x CDROM, network card, and a 6GB Seagate HDD. Cost me $50 with 128MB, and the extra RAM cost me $10. The case is really ugly - beige, with bad yellow sun discoloration.

Also included is a clone X100P card, that has had very little use. I have two identical cards, and they work very well for me, though some people report echo issues with them. X100P cards are not recommended for production use / mission critical use (but for the price, are irressistable for home use! The card cost me $70 I think.

A brand new PAP2T $119 - I would buy this on your behalf, and unlock it

Cables $10 or so to cover power, network and phone cables.

Latest version of Trixbox 2.2 with all packages installed and updated, and default passwords (with instructions how to change).

If you pay for the freight (about $20), and what the gear cost me ($130), I will pre-configure the box to do the following:

Have whatever extensions you want
Plug into your normal Telecom phone line
Configure any SIP trunks (VFX, iTalk, GizmoProject,, MyNetPhone, etc)
Configure your inbound and outbound routes as you want (or I can suggest/implement suitable ones)
Networking settings to fit in with your existing network
Voicemail setup (Even so you can dial 083210 if you want it to be easy to remember!)
Give you settings for softphones/PAP2Ts/etc

So all you have to do, is plug the box into a powerpoint, and your network, and your telephone line (all cables included).

Whats not included

An ATA - you need one of these to plug your nomal telephone into the Trixbox system. If you dont have one, I will supply a PAP2T, or you can buy your own. A Linksys PAP2T will give you two extensions. You can put as many PAP2Ts on the system as you like (I have 2, which gives me four extensions, plus softphones on my PCs).

Does this float anyones boat? You are getting gear good enough to run Trixbox well enough for a home setup at the price I paid for it +freight, and an hour or two of my time and expertise configuring the darn thing.


$279 with everything including a 2 extension ATA, all cables, all hardware, simply plug in and start calling.
$160 without an ATA (supply your own standard SIP ATA)

Any takers?

I'd just like to remind anyone who may be interested in Tony's Trixbox rig, that I have an unlocked PAP2T available for sale @ $80 here:

It will give you the complete package at a very reasonable price compared to buying a new PAP2T @ $119 Cool
