How to: Setup Asterisk PBX Easily with AsteriskNOW in 30 minutes

    Use another PBX instead of Asterisk. Linux operating system is much more difficult than windows. Use Ozeki Phone System XE rather than Asterisk.
    Here is a link that may help those who have problems in this topic: ozekiphone.com/what-is-asterisk-341.html

      You do realize this is a website dedicated to linux right? PS:windows will always be a little less secure then linux if done right.
