[UPDATED: 03 FEB 2015]
Here’s a VMDK image to run a full featured Asterisk PaBX with FreePBX as the management UI using our default and secure install practices. No registrations, no username/password, no signing up for newsletter.
Get it from Sourceforge: https://sourceforge.net/projects/debianasterisk/[Select SWSterisk11 folder, then download the zip file therein]
After extracting, You either need VirtualBox or VMPlayer/VMWare or any Virtualization products that supports VMDK files or if you’re using Hypervisor, convert the image to VHD using MVMC from here. This is to give you a feel of Asterisk with FreePBX without worrying about installation etc., its plug and play, literally. Just start up to your VirtualBox/VMplayer nd get it up and running in seconds. Go in to FreePBX and start creating extensions and enable other features. This image is free from any lockdowns or customizations that you cannot reverse or disable or enable as you wish. It is completely FREE from any personal restrictions. This image does not trace usage, or “dials home” or anything strange like that. Totally clean, totally lean and totally fast. It is functional and you can hook it up to a real production environment and you almost have a full fledge PBX, just add a Digium VoIP Gateway or another IP based PSTN.
- While it is enterprise ready, it should rather be used for “playing” or “testing”….
- DISCLAIMER: By using this VIRTUAL MACHINE IMAGE, i disclaim any sorts of liability whatsoever. What you do with this image is purely your choice/actions.
- This is not "another disto", nothing proprietary, i don't claim any copyrights, just make it look and feel like its mine for fun, but of course any of those customizations can be reversed. All other trademarks are properties of their respective owners. All rights reserved.
- It’s in ZIP compression, just get WinRAR or 7-ZIP to extract. After extracting, there should be one vmdk just mount the vmdk into VMWare/VMPlayer or Virtualbox and start the image

- The interface, extX, is set to use DHCP, so be sure to hook up DHCP or manually. In case you can’t bring the interface up, run #ifconfig –a . Then edit the file in /etc/network/interfaces and set all values to correspond to the interface shown when you run ifconfig –a (not loopback of course)
