Not if you load the answering robot :-p

One of the features of asterisk, if I understood it well, is that it does codec
translation.
In normal VoIP, the the negotiation between two points uses a registrar, but
the conversation
itself only involves the end-points, the "phones". But with asterisk it is also
involved,
because it is used to match different codecs between bot ends. I suppose that
if both can
negotiate a common codec, they use it and free asterisk, but if not, asterisk
does the
translation.

It means that with asterisk you can converse with anybody, but you load more
the machine -
which is (one of the reasons?) why the documentation say that the machine
should not run X.


One thing I looked to see if it existed, was separate terminals for video
conferencing (with
asterisk?). You know, phone terminal with a small display. Have only seen them
in SciFi movies.
