best current version and motherboard/CPU compatibilities

Report
Question

I've been away from asterisk for a while since 1.4.16 and only installed
1.6 once to run a test... can someone recommend what the best version to
install is and the recommended CPU/motherboard for an * box these days?

select...

Asterisk server. 'sip show peer' shows their IP address, port, and
useragent.
- The ATA is connected directly to the internet (no NAT, but the sip
configuration has nat=always) and logs in to our server, which is also

the call from the DAHDI…

DBusing over AGI Just realised that this can better be described another way: What we're essentially trying to do is be able to do any one of these a) stream an audio/video file stored in the DB via AGI into the current
