Hey AussieWISP – I hope I didn’t add to the confusion, and atheling will be able to clear us up.
I’m not sure of the patch status but I read the same thing, and am still on b12 (not the vitamin).
Asterisk in the downloads section is to install (barebones) asterisk right on your zeroshell box.
My next question is the same as yours. If successful next is to bond/balance/failover my 2 connections, and it seems rules are put into the section to control the behavior?
If that’s successful I’ll then try MLPPP(as our ISP does, and must support it) with 4 or 5 connections bonded.
If you can get MLPPP working that would handle failover and load balancing a lot better than multiple links with different end point IP addresses. Neither your Asterisk server nor your VoIP provider(s) would need to be fooled about changing IP addresses on failover.
However I don’t have experience in that area so will be unable to assist.
