Hi Marco
Asterisk will do exactly what you want, as long as your line is point to 
multipoint.  I did my initial experimentation with Asterisk exactly as 
you describe.  You just need to specifiy in your extensions.conf which 
MSN numbers you want asterisk to respond to.  It will ignore all others.

Best and cheapest option would be to try a zaphfc card for 20 euros or 
so.(Billion, Asustek, etc)  Make sure it is on its own IRQ or you will 
have real problems.  Use bri-stuff-0.0.2 from www.junghanns.net.

When you have played a bit, you can use a second card in NT mode to 
connect to your other ISDN equipment, and you can use * as the main 
switch.  Magic!

And by the  way, your English is much better than my German!

Good luck!
