Asterisk 101

What is Asterisk:

Asterisk is an open source PBX (private branch exchange) that provides all the functionality of high-end business telephone systems, and much more. The "much more" is what we are interested in. We will be pushing Asterisk to its limits to create interactive projects that involve good old-fashined telephones. Asterisk can speak to PHP, so it can speak to basically to anything. Use your phone as a controller for your pcomp project. Create a website where people share stories that they record from their phone. There are lots of possibilities.

Example projects:

Botanicalls

The Popularity Dialer

Megaphone

Voice from the Past

Tugg of War

 Asterisk resources:

Shawn Van Every's Redial Class. If you go through these notes, you will learn how to use Asterisk.

Marc Covitz's Notes

Voip Info: extensive reference for Asterisk (especially a complete list of all of asterisk's applications)

 

The following notes borrow heavily (and sometimes directly) from Shawn and Marc's notes as well as the Asterisk book:Asterisk The Future of Telephony:

How do I start using Asterisk?

In order to use asterisk, you need to have an account created for you on ITP's Asterisk server. To get an account, you can email me (kaciekinzer@gmail.com) with your net ID and I will create an account for you.

Have an account? Great, let's start by logging in to the Asterisk server via an FTP program.

 

1. Logging onto the Asterisk server

First, understand that by having an account on the Asterisk server, you have special folders created for you. These folders are where you will upload your code, sound files, etc. Let's log in and take a look at those folders.

Get your favorite FTP program (Fugu, Fetch, Cyberduck) and create a new SFTP account.

 

server: asterisk.itp.tsoa.nyu.edu
username: netid
password: typical ITP password that goes with your netid

 
Log it and you will see several folders:
