my internet service provider will not let me recive or send any audio files. Is there any software that I can download or buy that hides the phone modem being used with the broadband connection?

here is the deal. I moved to a caribbean island. The phone companies have a monopoly over all voice communications to and from the island. the broadband internet providers here have software that blocks my Vonage phone, u can't use instant messager with video/audio. I am trying to find a way to hide the use of my broadband phone from the internet provider.

Sweet!

No can do with Vonage, you'll have to use something that will let you select what port the packets route to and from. Either that or go satellite and tell that provider to kiss your you-know-what.

Depending on how well they're watching those packets, just using "stealthy" ports may not do any good. Besides port filtering they may be inspecting the packets and just dropping anything that isn't on their approved list.

Yeah, just what are the consequences for going around their service? Is this worth jail time?

The ISPs (broadband providers you say) probably don't exactly block the packets, but rather block any IP traffic to / from certain Vonage IP addresses (doesn't anyone else more technical agree with me... that would be easiest wouldn't it? -- just maintain a list of 20 or so Vonage IPs you can't live without).

So I would say this is as simple as a cat and mouse game. Find an off the run, not well known Voip solution that they haven't blocked yet. Don't disclose your location and go on over to the Voip forum at DSLReports.com

Then pick the most obscure Voip company you can find that might work and make sure you get a 30 day money back guarantee.

I don't know any of the technical ins and outs, but would putting the ATA behind a router do any good or conceal anything?
I also live on a Caribbean Island and am interested in any developments as our telco is also a monopoly and screaming about Voip.
Thanks

Probably not. There are various ways of blocking traffic and none of them would likely make any difference if a router is used or not. They could block ports ("mini-addresses" for each IP address), IP addresses themselves, and the types of packets used to transmit the voice data or session renewals.

Yes... there are various ways, but we're talking about some half-a$$ed attempts of an ISP that may not even be controlled by the phone monopoply to defeat a technology they may not fully understand. I would asssume they are doing the easiest and cheapest thing possible (blocking entire IP addresses) and I would also assume that their information is not up to date!

But as far as working with Vonage.. fugetabutit.

What Caribbean Islands are we talking about? I'm thinking about getting the softphone to give to my girlfriend who is going to Ross Univ. School of Vet. Med. on St. Kitts and I'm wondering if she'll have any problems? I know she can use Net2Phone and Yahoo but those aren't ideal.

Just wondering your thoughts.
