I have spent the past 9 years working at a small ISP, where I manage E-mail, DNS, Web, and Voip servers for a couple thousand clients.

comment ISC-DHCPD: why does it cease to work when the internet is down?
The DNS server specified in the DHCP configuration was a hostname, not an IP address, which doesn't work when the internet is down, because the DHCP server only hands out IP addresses to clients for DNS servers!

comment ISC-DHCPD: why does it cease to work when the internet is down?
@Tim: I suppose the domain-name and domain-name-servers options are external resources, but shouldn't that just be what should be assigned to the client, and then let the client figure it out from there? Oh wait, the domain-name-servers are hostnames, not IPs...

comment I need to create a network for a call center
Yes, I second this. As the systems administrator for a VoIP provider, I can definitely tell you that without the knowledge you'd need to answer the easy networking questions, you'll be hopelessly lost when tackling Asterisk. Give up now and find someone who has past experience doing this.
