Hi Shaikh,

Given what you are looking to do, I think that implementing Asterisk  
alone should be a perfectly adequate solution to establish a basic SIP  

SER, although not that difficult, is likely overkill to implement in  
this situation.  Asterisk has a SIP registrar built-in that I would  
suggest you use instead of SER, especially if you are only  
implementing a handful of devices.

Therefore, I would recommend attempting to install Trixbox CE, an open- 
source Asterisk "turn-key" solution.  Trixbox is downloaded as an ISO  
that includes a unix OS with an Asterisk build already compiled on  
it.  In addition to Asterisk at the core, it also includes many GUI  
components that help facilitate the configuration of the system  
through a web interface.  Keep in mind this is to be installed on a  
dedicated machine as the ISO will format that system's hard drive  
prior to install.

Check it out at: http://www.trixbox.com/products/trixbox-ce

Good luck!
