Thanks. Your setup is exactly the design setup we're shooting for with the new image installs. If you can't get this up and running with extensions, IVR, and a trunk to make and receive calls in under an hour, please let us hear about it. We've now included trunk setups for ten major providers so that's as easy as plugging in credentials. It's just a matter of routing the trunks in and out of your PBX, and everything should "just work."The preconfigured stuff will definitely help, but the complaint is valid.
As an Asterisk/FreePBX virgin, after more than a decade away from phone systems, I had a working FreePBX distro system with voip.ms (make/receive calls, a few of extension, a rudimentary IVR, etc) within a couple hours from booting the ISO. There was minimal head scratching and only provider FAQ based help on setting up trunks. I can't say the same for XiVO, even with the IPBX tutorials it is still a more difficult product to get going.
