Thanks guys, I ran the following test with testyourvoip.com and here is the answer I got from my 56k modem at home. As follows:

The test agent could not connect to London using the standard SIP port (5060), but was able to connect and run a test to another location via an alternate port (6000). This indicates that one of the following may be true:

* If you have a Voip Service, your VoIP/Phone Adaptor may have reserved the standard SIP port and is filtering out our SIP packets. Consider temporarily removing the Adaptor from your configuration and re-running the test.
* Your Personal Firewall, if you are using Windows XP, may be filtering the SIP port used for communication.
* Either your home firewall or your broadband provider's firewall is blocking the SIP port used for communication.



You should consider investigating these settings and trying the test again.


What do you recomend I do now?


punt. Vonage doesn't use udp 5060, but Omantel is probably blocking both udp 5060 and 5061, which is what Vonage uses for SIP.

I read this post on a thread about a similiar problem they had in qatar, but I dont really understand it. Can anyone explain what I would have to do to do this?

All -

I have been using a non-Vonage service for 2 years. I use Vonage at another office outside Qatar. When SIP was blocked, we did some investigation, and realized that the Qtel is causing significant packet loss on UDC traffic along with blocking common SIP ports.

The solution was to tunnel Voip via TCP (which causes an extremely small voice quality loss at times), with the help of another smaller provider. Life have been good since this was put in place (although the PC needs to be up and running the tunneling software while calls are being made or recieved). Using the G729a codec which needs very little bandwidth, the quality is fine even with tunneling.

That's what I was talking about in an earlier post. Encapsulating IPSec in tcp. You'llhave to locate a provider that will do that for you.

So I keep my Vonage account and have a second account via a different firm that routes through to Vonage?

Does anyone know what would be a good suggestion?

Can we assume that all Voip is blocked here or just Vonage? Do other companies use different ports? Or do all providors use the same ports for SIP?

Because I could get another company phone system and have all my Vonage calls redirected. THoughts?

You might (no guarantees) be able to get Vonage to change your SIP ports... the adapter supports it, but not sure if their servers will. As far as tunneling goes, maybe one of the people in Qatar could hook you up with the same company they're using.

thank you for all your help everyone.

Does anyone know a service providor that allows changes of ports? I cant see how to do it with Vonage.

Vonage customer support shows zero indications that they are going to help me so I need to get another service providor and then reroute the calls from Vonage lines.

Anyone?

You might want to head over to VoIP Forum for discussions regarding other Voip providers, as that is against our rules.

Tom keating has a nice forum going on over there.

I too noticed that Omantel has blocked all Voip activity. However, they appear to be doing something clever. The Vonage site is not being blocked. However, when the calls are coming in or going out, the voice from Oman can be heard very well at the other side. The phone also rings when a call is coming in. From what I can see, you can make the first call on Vonage or skype. However, when you the second call is attempted, this happens. So, to me it looks like they have some means of monitoring the activity, (in some kind of offline activity) and this is being fed back into their equipment which kind of degrades the quality of the incoming voice. Omantel is a monopoly operator and also provides the phone services in Oman. So, this is their way of "protecting their revenue for the international calls".

Recently there was a news item in one of the other countries in the Gulf that some company has been awarded a contract to supply equipment to stop Voip, where the situation is a similar monopoly operator controlling both Internet and telephones.

I am pretty sure that this must be some kind of unfair trade practice and the only way it is going to stop is when the WTO and other organizations where these countries are signatories will get wind of monopoly practices. That is part of the reason why the opening up of the telco business has been going so slow in this part of the world.
