As far as I know these cards have to be BABT approved. The Digium ones only have approval for the ISDN 30 (although a customer told me today that ISDN 2 is approved ?). The analogue cards are not approved. With unapproved cards you have a different issue ie do they work. When I googled for it about three months it said that they do work but that you get echo. There is another problem which is that on analogue the voice can be quiet in switching environments. (I built a switching platform on Dialogic and it was workable but quiet) I don't know if there are issues with this. A further problem is that you can't tell when the call started so it causes problems if you are selling services. 
 
I could go on - but all of these put me off bothering trying to get it working. I just wanted to set up a SIP server and bounce the calls through and then go straight for ISDN 30 (Q.931)
 
I don't know how far we will get with this - its just for the doing of it at the moment, but I would look at Quicknet cards to see if they work.

I was under the impression that the FXO card is just a modem, which is why
you can buy them (x100p compatible||oem||clone) on ebay for peanuts.

I also believe quicknet cards (LineJack/PhoneJack) are supported on
FreeBSD (ixj in ports.)

Roger Hardiman, where are you?
