Most B2B alarms, the alarm company monitors whether or not the the line is "open" (ie, cut or otherwise interrupted), and this raises a flag for it to be investigated. So cutting the phone line, generally is the same as setting off the alarm. Only in a commercial installations where they can spend ...

I dont see how a phone line as an easy attack point for a intruder, they would need to break through walls to cut the wire. Not in my street. Many houses have a white pipe exposed to the nature strip - rather than digging below a brick wall the pipe goes up the outside and then through the wall. A ...

If you have a B2B alarm then Naked ADSL2+ isnt for you, big deal you can still get ADSL2+ Inc Phone from Exetel which is perfect for B2B alarms. Absolutely correct. My motivation for investigating this is that I consider the landline as an easy attack point for a burglar, it is easily accessible an...

As an aside, surely the real benefit in having an alarm system is the deterent aspect of the stickers and the visible alarm box on the exterior of the house. Does having B2B really make your house any more secure? Go Naked and ditch the B2B - you'll save even more money! You obviously don't see the...

It seems the solution is as simple as plugging it into an ATA of which wireless versions exist. I don't think it will be that simple. The fax service uses the standard T.38 that is specifically designed to carry fax streams over voip. Your ATA and the carrier must be able to support it. It does not...

Thanks for a fast reply. I thought the VoIP number was a different thing from a home phone (10 digit?) number and thus not able to use your original number for VoIP. No they are the same, 10 digits also. When you get an in dial VOIP number it looks like a standard telephone number, so people call t...

We have had our current home phone number for 15 years and my mother doesn't want to change it unless incoming calls on the old number can be forwarded to our VoIP number. Will this be possible? I tried searching the telstra website, but came apon nothing mentioning redirection for VoIP. Assuming t...

I currently have VOIP with Pennytel, but I am an Exetel Net user...my question is that I'd love to switch to Voip only, but so far after using it for 6 months I often find the quality very poor. I have spent days trying to tweak my Linksy SPA as well as researching how to improve the voice quality,...

Re: Do I need email hosting?

My question is: can I achieve #2 with just the domain registration/hosting and the standard email services? Or do I need order email hosting services as well? The answer is yes but you need a few things. When you buy your your domain name you need to point your domain to a DNS. Some registrars thro...

It is? That is surprising. Is that mentioned somewhere as I didn't think that using a cloaked redirection would be against any Acceptable Use Policy.

Re: can i use my own domain name on exetel free host?

HI, can i use my own domain name on exetel free host? thanks You can do it indirectly by using a cloaked redirection facility, so that when a user types in www.yourdomain.com it actually displays whatever is in http://home.exetel.com.au/myaccount, and leaves the URL as www.yourdomain.com in the bro...

Excellent. Will you post here if there is a change to this tariff? It saves me from looking at the tariff table in the website every now and then.
