Hello

we are using Polycom 320 VOIP telephones through Coms.com and would like to add a phone to our Dubai office.

Normally we would just set up an account, send the phone over and they would connect it to the broadband at their end.

However the ISP blocks SIP traffic and i was just wondering if anyone knew of any kind of workaround for this situation.  they currently use VPN to connect to otherwise restricted web sites.

any help would be greatly appreciated

Are the phone trying to connect back to your office? How is the Dubai office connected to yours? Can't you put the voice traffic through a vpn?

sorry i had posted yesterday but it appears that it didn't update.

anyway the office in dubai is not connected to ours, but they do use a VPN service on their pc to view ISP blocked content.

the problem being that we cannot share the PC's VPN connection as it only has a single ethernet port.  i was wondering if their is a router or some similar device that could be used to connect the VPN and then just plug the phone and computer into it.

is there a device that could do this?

Site to Site VPN router/firewall would accomplish your request.  I have used Sonicwall TZ series with much success for an office with a handful of users.

Sonicwall offers larger units if you have a larger user groups.
