    Hi all,
    I am going to be using 3CX for our VOIP. What specification do you recommend for a server?

    For the operating system do you recommend as well I can use one of the following:
    Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional
    Microsoft Windows Server 2000
    Microsoft Windows Advanced Server 2000
    Microsoft Windows XP Professional
    Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Standard
    Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition
    Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Standard R2
    Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition R2
    Microsoft Windows Vista Business Edition

    But I don't think it matters to much about the operating system, I would like to used Microsoft Windows Server R2. More so i would like to know what specification the server is to be.

    Thank You

    And I quote
    Now, remember, the actual hardware specs are not anywhere as important as the network vs installation size, which is why I suggested the first link. I am running it on an old P3 766Mhz 300+MB RAM for my small business and have no complaints.

    Go for it. I have W2K Server as OS with a 60GB HD that has only 11GB used, and that includes six or so web sites since I keep this machine as a backup web server also. You will do much better.
