Greetings,

Welcome to my user page. I'll keep it short and sweet.

Im a recent convert to linux, mainly because of linuxMCE. Im hoping to help add some organization to the community and maybe eventually a little more. Im currently a licensed General building contractor in Ca and technology is my passion in my spare time. Since receiving my license, i've had more time to focus on my hobbies and start picking up on the technical thread I started on while in the Navy.

Anyways, thats a little about me. Have a nice Day

My Hardware

List of my hardware


  • Media Director
    • Motherboard - ASUS_M2NPV-VM
    • Processor -MD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 3800+ 2.0 GHz Processor with 89-Watt Power

    • 1 x ir transmitter running off of USB_UIRT in another room via a headphone extension cord.

Telcom Hardware

Besides this hardware, i have softphones installed on all of the windows machines in the house using Zoiper. The setup was easy.

  • I added a 'Generic SIP Softphone' from the phones page in the webadmin.
  • The Username and password to set up the account are the extension number.
  • The proxy is the ip of your core.
    • Note, my network setup is such that all machines are on the lmce subnet.
  • The softphones register and work fine.

Voip

I have one line with Broadvoice that is currently setup with linuxmce. I set it up with no problems via the webadmin.

I also have one landline. Getting this to work with linuxmce has been a bit of a chore and its still a work in progress.

  • I connected it with a Linksys spa-3102
  • I can recieve and route calls within the house from this line.
  • The is no caller ID on this line
