I am trying to establish a video conferencing session over H323 protocol over ISA 2006 with SP1. The connection gets established and suddenly disconnects within seconds. Both Audio and Video are available during the connection. How to avoid the sudden disconnection and extend the VC session?

Thanks

Create a rule with the following properties.
 
 Action - Allow
 Protocols - H.323 Protocol
 From - External
 To - Internal
 Users - All Users
 
 This rule is a bit to open to use but if you can get a connection with it you should then secure it a bit more by allowing only certain users etc.

I have checked with all the people I know and no one seems to have an answer for this.

Are their any other devices in the chain? Router, Firewall, etc?

That is your issue. I have read all over the web that ISA don't handle double NATing well. Especially for high bandwidth applications.
