It's to do with ALG rules.
We have a Juniper SRX and had to relax SIP and H323 ALG rules to allow it to talk out, ours was voice but either no or one-way video.
If you need more information than this I'll try to help.

What if you try to disable H323 nat service:
no ip nat service H323
on the router.
And tell the polycom NAT is not compatible with H323?

Does the Polycom connect to a (hosted) Gateway service at all?

cciedreamerAuthor Commented:
No. Its connected to Router through Cisco Switch. The Router have ADSL internet and ISP giving DHCP public IP address and the internal clients are natted on router...same applies to Polycom HDX.

Thanks

Sorry - to clarify I meant a Polycom service gateway (effectively a service provider portal). Not your traditional "Network Gateway" as such.
Usually this will be set up in the settings.

Please can you also help how to configure them on routers ? And can also what does it mean to open bidirectional.

Thanks for your support.

kiwistagCommented:
Opening bi-directional all depends on your firewalling. It means that you must both NAT in the ports required and allow outgoing traffic on those ports too.

Off the top of my head I'm not too sure how to set up the Cisco routers via CLI as I usually work with the likes of Juniper gear for routing here (which are more advanced).
