NEC Aspire IP Phones



  • I have a client who has an Aspire NEC phone system setup at their office, and they'd like to have their NEC IP phones connect to the main office phone system. The requirements are either a static IPsec or PPTP connection on the remote offices to the main office. I've tried both IPsec and PPTP and both make the tunnel so I can view and navigate the local network, but ONLY the ASPIRE box at the main office I can't ping even. Is there any compatibility issues with PF and IP phone systems?

    I search for IP phones in the forums, but it only brought up questions about vonage the those types of P2P IP phone systems.

    Thanks!



  • This is the list of ports I got from another forum that should be open on both the main and remote sites… Does any of these ring a bell that may strike an issue in PFSense?

    DtermIP (Receive Port on Aspire PBX Side – System IP Phone)
    IP Phone DRS (Registration)/DRS Mate Port UDP 3456 84-03-02
    IP Phone Signalling/PROTIMS Self Port UDP 3458 84-03-01
    IP Phone Display Updates UDP 3459 Fixed
    IP Phone H.245 TCP 10100-10131
    (enter the first port – this is
    the first port in a range of
    32 ports used)
    84-06-03
    IP Phone Ready/Answer Port UDP 4000 84-06-11
    RTP UDP 10020-10082
    (even ports)
    84-06-01
    RTCP UDP 10021-10083
    (odd ports)
    84-06-02
    –---------------------------------------------------------------------
    DtermIP (Receive Port at IP Phone Side)
    DRS Self Port UDP 3455 Defined in IP Phone Programming
    IP Phone Signalling/PROTIMS Self Port UDP 3458 Defined in IP Phone Programming
    IP Phone Display Updates UDP 3459 Fixed
    RTP Self Port UDP 3462 Defined in IP Phone Programming
    RTCP UDP 3463 Fixed
    IP Phone Ready/Answer Port UDP 4000 84-06-11
    H.245 Port “any port” Uses any available port from 1024+.
    Set in IP phone program to 1024 for a
    Constant port number

    I'm going to open all these and give it a try… But I'm doubt full.
    I've opened ALL ports on both sides temporarily to see if it wa a port issue, but I still wasn't able to connect.
    Perhaps, being more specific will solve the problem...?

    The impression I'm getting is that PFSense is a great solution for the average user and soho business, but if you start venturing into really technical stuff, issues and compatibility arise. For a small business I was hoping this "enterprise like" firewall/router PF may of been the answer.

    Thanks for any input or clarification!



  • when you did all of this under nat did you turn off Advance outbound Nat and then set static ports to on?

    that is what i had to do to get linksys and cisco phones to work with my Voip
