Greetings everyone,

I’ve been working on a (yet another) “all-in-one” Asterisk based project. It is aimed at embedded / low power systems (but scales fine on more capable hardware) and is based on Asterisk 1.4.x and FreeBSD 6.2. Because of this, I’ve mostly been hanging out on the asterisk-bsd list as bugs rolled in and the system’s features were improved. We’re currently at public beta 10 after releasing pb1 in June and, I hope, ready to announce this to a bit larger audience.

This is not a live-cd but rather an image that must initially be written to a disk, so a dedicated machine is needed. After that, the entire system is upgradeable through the webGUI. Anyone familiar with the m0n0wall project will feel right at home as AskoziaPBX was forked from it.
Here are the quick facts from the website and a link to the page:

* ~11 MB firmware image
* PHP based GUI accessible via http(s)
* based on Asterisk 1.4 and FreeBSD 6.2
* designed for embedded / low resource systems
* images available for the following platforms:
o generic pc
o pc engines wrap

* GUI currently configures:
o SIP, IAX, ISDN and Analog phones and providers
o Conferencing
o Voicemail (forwarded as e-mail attachment)
