H.323 protocol support for Asterisk

Asterisk is an Open Source PBX and telephony toolkit. This channel driver (chan_h323) provides support for the H.323 protocol for Asterisk. This is an implementation originally contributed by NuFone and nowdays maintained and distributed by Digium, Inc. Hence, it is considered the official H.323 chanel driver. This is one of many H.323 channel implementations for Asterisk with others being chan_oh323 and chan_ooh323c, distributed by Debian as asterisk-oh323 and asterisk-ooh323c, respectively. For more information about the Asterisk PBX, have a look at the Asterisk package.


More information about apt-get remove

Advanced Package Tool, or APT, is a free software user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. APT simplifies the process of managing software on Unix-like computer systems by automating the retrieval, configuration and installation of software packages, either from precompiled files or by compiling source code.

apt-get is the command-line tool for handling packages, and may be considered the user's "back-end" to other tools using the APT library.

apt-get remove is identical to install except that packages are removed instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be installed instead of removed.
