PostPosted: Fri Feb 17, 2006 10:06 pm    Post subject: VPN to make call Reply with quote Back to top

have tryed looking and have not seen this..

Here it goes I just got Vonage ( still waiting on the adaptor I had it sent over night ) but here is what i wish to try or do..

If I am on the road and I am alot I went to beable to VPN in to my network and use a USB softphone to make the call over my VPN.

Bandwidth in not a problem I am on a 10mb x 10mb fiber line. but i do not see anything on using a softphone from with in your home Vonage network with hardwired lines.

I can think of one way to do this but i dont really wish to go that route. and that in to use a VNC client to my server box and have a phone line hooked up to the box and make a call that way.. I dont like the idea. I just want to be able to VPN to my network and make a call using a USB phone or softphone.

I dont know if anyone will understand what i am try to do. But if you do please let me know of any other was to do this.

It will look like this

1) VPN ---> W2K ---> RTP300 ---> WRT54GS (Custom) ---->Internet backbone

or i guess i can do this as well but its the long way

2) VPN --> PBX IP Phone server ---> RTP300 ---> WRT54GS --> Internet

I really dont feel like making a PBX Box or buying a few IP Phone for in the house.


Thanks
William

If I understand correctly you want to leave your Vonage device at home (or work), and access it over the VPN connection. I have not tried something like that, but I do use a VPN connection to encrypt my conversations.

This is the way I have it setup. I use OpenVPN to set up a layer 2 tunnel between a Linux box I have at my University Apartment and a Linux server I have at a co-location in New York. They provide ~86mbit/s (this is the speed I got when I tested it). The Linux server at my apartment has two ethernet ports. One is connected to the University network; the other my private network. With the tunnel open to my server in New York, all the computers see it as part of the local network on the same subnet. Essentially the second port on my Linux box becomes a wire that runs all the way to New York. The tunnel is transparent, all i have to do is hook up a computer to my switch, and its traffic goes over the tunnel. All traffic goes though the tunnel encrypted, and out to New York. I do this to keep people from eavesdropping on my connection. Ive had this happen before.

The difference in what I have and what you are trying to do is the location of the Voip device. On my network the device is with me hooked up to the switch. If I read your post correctly, I think you are trying to use the device remotely. Please correct me if I am wrong.

If you are trying to set up something similar to what I have I might be able to help you out.

You are right.
I am going to try at hit the box remotely.

I have been doing alot of reading on this matter and seems no one has posted anything about the matter.

I am still waitting for the box. ( I had them send it over night ) but i have not gotten the BOX DHL will not get it to me untill monday ( over night take 4 days Hmmmmm ) anyways.

I will be tring it but i dont think it will work. I may have to setup my own Voip server with voange as the backend.. But that seems like alot of work when VPN will be much easyer to setup..

But if i do a Voip server for my self it will look like this:

Me remotely -- > My Voip Server --> Router --- > Vonage Box -- > Internet Back Bone -- > Whom I am calling..

But with that type of setup alot can go wrong and leave more holes in the setup then swiss chease..

If anyone out there has setup Vonage with VPN for remote calling please let me know before I send a few hours building a BOX.

Thanks
Will

You could technically connect the rtp300 to a server that has an FXO card with Asterisk. Then just setup your Voip software to connect to Asterisk, which should drop you onto your Vonage line. The only problem I see with this is the latency and possible packet loss. I personally would not do this without that server on a teir 1 connection. The server I am connected to, has a latency of about 6ms from Vonage's gateway. My Linux server at the University has a latency average of about 33 ms from the server in New York. Which makes it about 39 ms from Vonage. Anything over 200 ms and there is going to be a lot of talking over each other on the phone.

Well I am on a 10 x 10 Fiber line so I have the bandwidth.

I just hate to setup a PBX when i can just use a softphone over VPN.. or a USB Softphone over VPN..

Guess the bottom line is I have to just wait for the Vonage box to get here
