Manage the VOIP and TOIP service



  • Hi

    pfSense can also manage independently the VOIP and TOIP (Telephony over IP) voice services provided by some ISPs?

    Thanks

    Bye



  • pfSense will not prevent you from using VOIP services provided by some ISPs, but some providers are

    • using a separate voice vlan
    • not giving customers their voip login credentials
    • limiting you to only use a phone connected to their modem/ONT/etc.

    So, you could recommend some appliances with 64 bit pfSense which works both as a firewall that voice gateway?

    Thanks

  • I suggest to consider all the voice devices/services completely separately from the router.

    Why?

    You could set up and use the SIP-Proxy on pfSense
    You could set up the asterisk or FreePBX packet too
    Or you install asterisk or FreePBX on an Raspberry PI 3.0 together with Linux as the VOIP appliance!

    All services running on the pfSense could be narrowing down the entire throughput and/or
    causing problems. So if this VOIP will be outside you may have enough power to run Snort
    or Suricata on the pfSense appliance.
