[asterisk-users] VMware and Digium TDM400P card

VMWare specifically states that it doesn't provide guest access to any 
non-standard devices.  The guest operating systems only have access to 
the disks, network, sound card, and USB ports (if they are not already 
being used by another guest or host OS).  As such, VMWare is not a good 
solution for Asterisk if you need access to any Digium boards.  The 
trixbox configuration assumes that you are using only SIP and/or IAX 
connections to Asterisk.
