Vonage There are two ways to bypass blocking of ports by your ISP. One way is to set

There are two ways to bypass blocking of ports by your ISP.

One way is to set up a tunnel between where you are and the remote server. For example, using IPsec (the VPN standard) you would have an encrypted tunnel through port 500 between you and a remote server or network that would make your PC appear as if it was located on the remote LAN.

However, you would need Vonage to cooperate because it always takes two ends to build a tunnel. Now, if you had a friend with a broadband connection in a place where the ports Vonage use is not blocked, then you could send your Vonage adapter there and build a tunnel between you and your friend, then from there the packets would go to Vonage the normal way.

The other way is to use a Voip service other than Vonage, a service which uses ports that your ISP doesn't block. This may be a lot easier to do and you can check it out using a software phone on your PC before you buy any adapter or IP phone.

If you use a Voip provider which uses the SIP protocol, this would use port 5060. So if your ISP doesn't block port 5060, then this could be an option for you.

However, if your ISP blocks Vonage, then they probably block other, SIP based services, too.

In this case, it might be a good idea to use a service that supports the IAX protocol which is less well known yet and the chance that your ISP knows about it is small. IAX uses port 4569 by default. An additional benefit is that IAX is absolutely NAT friendly. No workarounds are needed to make it work through NAT. IAX just goes through NAT since it only uses a single port.

Many providers support IAX now. The most well known are probably NuFone, Voicepulse and VoipJet but there are many many more.

In order to connect to an IAX service, you will need an IP phone or adapter that supports IAX. The most popular IAX adapter is called IAXy from You can also use a software phone. Firefly is a popular softphone that supports both SIP and IAX.

Finally, it is possible to run your own Voip switch using a software called Asterisk. This is open source and free. It is developed on Linux, but also runs on BSD, MacOS X and, using a Unix compatibility API called Cygwin, it can also be run on Windows.

Asterisk allows you to tweak Voip in ways that you cannot do with a Voip adapter. You can run multiple phones off your Asterisk server and bridge between Voip and the tradtitional phone network. You can also change the port settings for Voip protocols which can help to work around port blocking by ISPs.
