PostPosted: Mon Nov 13, 2006 11:44 am    Post subject: 3COM Firewall Port for Vonage Linksys Adapter Reply with quote Back to top

I have a small 3COM Firewall (3CR870-95-US) that comes in handy to occasionally block my kids from accessing the Internet when they should be doing their homework.

However, I need to insert a policy allowing my Vonage-supplied Linksys router to keep working when the rest of the network is locked down. As it stands now, when I block Internet traffic - everything is blocked except for the few PCs for which I have hard-coded 'exception rules'.

Is there a standard port or port range that the Linksys routers operate on that I can enter into my firewall settings so the phones will continue to connect regardless of the locked/unlocked state of the network?

From Vonage's website, outbound only:



DNS: Port 53 UDP

TFTP: Port 21, 69, 2400 UDP

HTTP: Port 80 UDP

NTP: Port 123 UDP

SIP: Port 5061 UDP (used for older Vonage devices provisioned before 2005)

RTP (Voice) Traffic: Ports 10000-20000 UDP.

The exceptions GUI that I can use to enter ports that are to be kept open is very limited, so I don't have places to enter all of the data you specified. Here are my choices:

Trigger Port: (I can enter a single port or a range)

Specify Protocol: (must choose either TCP or UDP)

Multiple Hosts Allowed: (default is an unchecked checkbox)

Session Chaining: (dropdown with these options...)
- disabled
- on TCP Sessions Only
- on both TCP and UDP Sessions

Any advice you can provide to work within those settings would be appreciated.

Can you just add your Vonage router's IP address to your existing policy's exceptions and allow everything outbound from that device?

I'm not certain how to ascertain the router's IP address - it is issued by DHCP from the 3COM firewall and unlike some DHCP-issuing routers, it doesn't maintain a list of active/issued DHCP licenses. The one time I connected my laptop directly to the Vonage/Linksys router was when the settings mysteriously vanished and I had to reconfig the unit while working with Vonage support in India. I don't recall the router's login at this point.

Hmm, well, if you can get back on the Vonage router's via it's web interface, set it up to use a static address instead of using DHCP.
