Web resources
Asterisk can be a tough nut to crack, but there is plenty of good advice on the Web. Following is a sample of Asterisk sites eWEEK Labs has found particularly useful:

www.digium.com Binaries, installation guides, configuration examples and a helpful forum from the creators of Asterisk

www.voip-info.org/wiki-Asterisk+config+files Not all SIP devices are created equal (or configured equally); check here for interoperability configuration tips

asteriskvoip.blogspot.com Asterisk and VOIP news

asteriskathome.sourceforge.net Cool project to get home users up and running with a complete, manageable Asterisk environment

www.signate.com Business-oriented Asterisk distro, with a handy graphical interface to streamline management

www.asteriskguru.com/tutorials More tools, tips and tutorials
