Voip problem in Juniper
Posted on 2009-05-07
After 6 months, we've finally finished setting up our Juniper SSG firewall. VPN and routes, etc are finally working. All except one thing: VOIP.
I have a VOIP server running on asterisk. I also have an IM server on a separate box. Both are connected to the DMZ with internal IP of IP 53.0.0.x. So we've set the required ports on Juniper so that it can pass traffic through VIP to the specific computer.
Now, the IM server works great (causing me to believe that the policy & routing in SSG is fine for the IM Server).
But the VOIP part is not working (the VOIP vendor blames it on the SSG, but I find it 80% unlikely because it was setup teh same way as IM routing was set up)
Now the question is, how do we know for sure that the port requested by the VOIP guy has been opened correctly by my network guy? (I'm working with 2 vendors). I tried telnet 126.96.36.199 1234 (port 1234) but it failed to connect
The connection to these servers uses a public IP (say 188.8.131.52), to which we've assigned VIP on SSG so that it will direct traffic from some ports to different computers.
Btw, the voip guy use x-lite software to test the connection.
