3COM NBX 3000, Pix 506e, remote phone without using VPN
Posted on 2006-04-14
I need the ability to connect remote phones to my NBX 3000 that resides withing my LAN (LAN1) behind a PIX 506e.
Steps that have been taken:
NBX configured with external IP address
PIX configured for...
port 2093-2096 UDP
port 1040-1044 TCP
Fixup protocol h323 h225 1720
I have plugged in the phone within LAN1 and let the Auto discovery do its thing. Meaning it is in the NBX database and has been assigned an extension. The phone was then taken to the offsite location (LAN2) and the LUI (local user interface) was used to assign the IP, subnet, and gateway for LAN1.
I plugged in the phone within LAN2, and the display shows "Connect to Phone Port".
LAN2 is a home address using a cable modem and a linksys WRT54G router. I assume I have to set the router to port foward 2093-2096 - correct? If this hasn't been done though, is that why the phone doesn't detect a phone port?
