Firmware: R77.20.87 (990173004)
Good day. I have a scenario where two remote sites have multiple SIP devices (phones and softphones) behind a Verizon FiOS modem. The issue is that for some reason the modem takes the device_LAN_IP1:5060 becomes device_WAN_IP:random (i.e. 173.X.X.X:35011 and 173.X.X.X:1026 and 173.X.X.X:1034). The devices SIP register but RTP does not work because to odd port cannot be reached.
After reading the manual I understand that a sip_dynamic_ports service can be made to fix this issue. With the odd port numbers does one has to make an outgoing and incoming rule for each device. For example
SIP SERVER is PBX with external IP Address and NAT to internal (LAN) PBX IP (This rule already exists)
Source Destination Service Action
(inbound rule) Phone IP address SIP Server Address udp_sip Accept
(outbound rule) SIP Server address SIP Phone Address sip_dynamic_port1 Accept
Get the impression that a rule has to be made for each odd Port number,
So for three devices I would have to add sip_dynamic_port1 (35011), sip_dynamic_port2 (port1026), sip_dynamic_port3 (1034), etc
Am I on the right trail or going down the rabbit hole? Is there another way that one can fix this quirky port numbering problem.
The GW setup for VOIP interface has been setup IAW the CheckPoint SK113573. Other remote phones connected over VPN tunnel function as expected. Just the remote FiOS phones are the prime headache.
