Wow, that's helpful.

I googled a bit, and found this lost page:


So, now it's updated with FWD and IdeaSIP, and linked from "VoIP
Service Providers"

Perhaps anyone who uses them can check examples - the ${EXTEN:1} part
seems wrong.

I wonder are there any legal issues if they were included in Asterisk
sample config? Or perhaps they could even pay for advertising to get
included there ;-)
