And now almost an hour later, I feel like an assterisk :)
Works, had to install all the module associated with pbx/* Looks like I'll
have a phone going in a few minutes. Oh an I was trying to use the ip of
logging&monitoring box. *beats head on desk*

But if you really want to know what I did that helped me alot, I'll tell
you.... I walked away for 10 minutes, had cold water and a cigarette.
Walking away for a few minutes helps alot.

Still a few small issues but nothing big like i thought.
I promise not to write emails  in a schitzo way in the middle of the night
anymore. :)
