"This article tells you how to set up your Linux box as an answering machine. Please read it carefully and modify the lines where needed. Be careful when working as root, and take care to make backup copies of any file before editing it, so that you can restore it back to the previous state in case something doesn't work."

  • A data-fax-voice modem-internal or external-working in Linux,
  • A microphone to record the greeting message, and
