Ive been asked to disable the protocol; SIP ALG on our firewall, from what I can see it cannot be done by ticking a box within the interface so looks like its done by the CLI?

Any advice would be great.

So they are the commands I enter into the CLI?

Is there a way I can see what the setting is currently set at?

When I checked to see if the protocol is on using the above command, I get the following result.

Unknown Action 0

What does that mean?

When I entereed the commands to disable the sip alg, these were accepted by the CLI.

So once I can work out how to display what status the sip alg, I should be all sorted.
