Vonage Reviews

Vonage I searched the groups to find answers to my questions, but didn't quite find what



I searched the groups to find answers to my questions, but didn't quite find what I was looking for, so I appologize if this has been beaten to death...

I have a Cisco PIX 501 running a small home network. I am fairly new to the PIX, but understand the basics. My current configuration is:

[Internet]

[Cable Modem]

[PIX 501]

{ [MOTOROLA VT1005V] [PC] [PC] [PC] }

Basically the devices between the { } are in my private NAT network.

I have had pretty good success with Vonage; my cable connection is seems very fast and is rarely (if ever) congested, however I tend to use the Internet via my PCs a lot, which can dramatically affect call quality.

I started reading about QoS and it sounds like the recommended approach (from Vonage mind you), is to put the [VT1005] between the [PIX 501] and the [Cable Modem] . I am not too comfortable with this only because from a security standpoint, I have no idea what that opens up. I am comfortable with everything behind the PIX.

As I said things _work_ and I didn't have to change anything on the PIX, but is there a way I can take advantage of QoS, however? Does the PIX support this? I have read about opening ports, but not sure what the best approach is.

I don't know what fixup is, so if that is a suggestion, could someone please explain it to me.

I have the [VT1005] with a hard-coded IP on my local LAN. Should I open up ports 5060-5063 (incoming) to that device? UDP or TCP? What about ports 10000 - 10011 (as the Motorola doc recommends)? Are all these forwarding rules inbound rules?

This mainly stems from a review I just read about the new Linksys Router/Firewall/Wireless/VOIP device (from Cisco). It sounds like it does a lot-more importantly, the reviewer said since all of this is in one device, it handles QoS seamlessly and calls always sound great, even while downloading a lot from the internal network.

Also when I try to add a translation rule (via the PDM) to forward UDP 5061 to my [VT1005] , I get the following warning:



I have no idea what this means, but I did notice that there is a rule in the list for port 5061-I know I didn't add it and I am the only one using the PIX. It's a dynamic mapping too, which I am not sure what that is either.

Any help would be appreciated.
