Projects - IAXComm

Although asterisk supports other IP protocols (including SIP, and with patches, H.323), IAX's simple, lightweight nature gives it several advantages, particularly in that it can operate easily through NAT and packet firewalls, and it is easily extensible and simple to understand.

IAXComm is a open-source softphone for Linux, Windows and MacOSX written by Michael Van Donselaar, which uses Asterisk's IAX2 protocol. It is built on the IAXClient library by Steve Kann.

I am not the author of either of these fine pieces of software - for more information please visit the IAXClient website. However, these pages document work I have done to help improve it.
