Quick test to check that FXO card OK?


After someone mentionned it, I installed the Pound Key distribution that comes with Asterisk, and the clone FXO card that I bought through eBay seems OK ("Found a wildcard FXO: Generic Clone").

There are plenty of books and articles on Asterisk that I'm currently reading, but... is there a quick test I can run to check that Asterisk works with this card successfully?

I'm thinking something like having connecting the phone cable to the FXO card, calling in from a regular POTS line, and having Asterisk output caller ID to its log file, or something like that.

The next step being running a soft phone on a second PC, running XP, and having the POTS phone and the soft phone connected :-)

Thank you
