The PAP2 usually comes preset with the provider's IP, and seeks it\nitself. Only after the provider gives its connection, does the dial\ntone appear on the PAP2.\n\nCan the PAP2 be hacked to seek another Asterix box for example? I'd be\ninterested in a setup where I have the two POTS ports of the PAP2\navailable, and I could dial from one to another. I'm sure the PAP2 has\nno pbx capabilities, but would be nice to get it to talk to a\nlinux-based pbx at home.... unless its communication protocol (SIP?)\nis too proprietary.\n\nI'm also not sure if the firmware of the PAP2 is located in a\ndifferent spot from the configuration, or is everything configured,\ncompiled and burned? If the config is in a different place, making it\npoint elsewhere should be trivial..\n\nIf it speaks standards-based protocols, I could even fake the IP it\nseeks, pointing to a local asterix box for the job.\n\nAny thoughts?\n\nThis also allows me to roll out my own VOIP joint... or at least\nskype-type joint where people can use their standard phones + PAP2,\nwithout the use of a computer. Legal issues in reconfiguring the PAP2\nif at all possible?
