Yes indeed. I guesstimated most decisions based on some faint background
knowledge and gut feeling. See below.

I tried to restrict the code base to what I had intended to use, hoping
for the best, as the alternatives in my situation back then were even
worse (i.e. closed-source IP phones directly in the net).

Very true. All I really needed was a replacement for ISDN back then,
which they forcibly shut down. I always wanted to try some private phone
conferencing, but never got at that.

As Bruce already mentioned: YMMV.

I'll send you the asterisk part of my last 19.07.3 config in a PM.
It worked quite well, besides the DNS problem I mentioned (above).
Moving to FreeSwitch was the right thing to do, at least for me.
