Posted on 2012-08-21
Last Modified: 2012-09-06

I am trying to configure my sonicwall tz 105 for some remote VOIP phones, the phone company says I need to forward ports 5060 and 8000 to the phone system which I have done they are also saying the following

ports 1024-1087 should be udp ports

Not sure what they mean here or how to do it.

Any ideas on what they mean ( I am not sure they know). Or if there is anything else I coould try I would appreciate it.

    logon to your SNA > VoIP > Settings and enable "Enable consistent NAT" and try...

    if still you need to open ports you can do as follows...

    SNA >Network > Services >Add

    Name: VOIP_EXT_Phone
    Protocol:UDP (17)
    Port Range:1024-1087


    Now Create on AO for your VOIP Phones Network...logon to SNA> Network > Address Objects

    Name: VOIP Phones
    Zone Assignment: LAN
    Type: Range
    Starting IP Address:, VOIP Phones First ip
    Ending IP Address: VOIP Phones Last IP


    NOTE: Ideally you dont need to create below rule,,,, for testing purpose you can create

    create Firewall rule to allow communication from WAN to LAN...

    Dest:VOIP Phones
    test and let me know...
