Configuration for Brekeke SIP Server behind NAT
Brekeke SIP Server is behind NAT (Near-End NAT), what configuration is required?
If your router supports UPnP, you can use it for Behind NAT traversal (Near-End NAT traversal). With UPnP, the Brekeke SIP Server can obtain the WAN IP address of the router and manage the port forwarding.
– If above configurations doesn’t solve the NAT issue, please try the following configuration.
- Go to Brekeke SIP Server admintool > [Configuration] > [System] > [UPnP]
- Set the following fields.
[Enable/Disable] = enable
[Default router IP address] = < blank > (if this field is blank, Brekeke SIP Server will use the default gateway’s IP address that the machine is using)
[Cache size] = number of concurrent calls that go through the router X 2
If your router doesn’t support UPnP, you need to configure interface address settings and a port forwarding manually. Please use the following settings for manual configuration:
1. In the [Configuration] page > [System], set [Network] as follows.
|Interface address 1||The WAN IP address of the router||IP address or FQDN of the router which can be reached from WAN side.|
2. Setting port forwarding at the router is required to ensure NAT traversal to work properly. With proper setting at the router, the Brekeke SIP Server’s listening ports for SIP and RTP are forwarded to the Brekeke SIP Server’s IP address.
Please set the following Brekeke SIP Server’s ports for the port forwarding at the router.
|Transport Protocol||Purpose||Set at|
|5060||UDP and TCP||SIP||[Configuration] > [SIP] > [Local Port]|
|10000-29999||UDP||RTP||[Configuration] > [RTP] > [Minimum Port] and [Maximum Port]|
