Asterisk Basics (Lab - 1)

Here we'll setup our very basic Asterisk lab.

What we should already have :
A LINUX Server (preferably CentOS: see previous posts), LAN env, Asterisk installed and running.

What we'll do:
Create a SIP user account Register a softphone with Asterisk server, Create a Basic call flow a.k.a Dialplan and make test calls to our dial plan. We'll also learn some issues any beginner might face while associating a dialplan context to a SIP user.
