I have a Vonnage Motorola VT100 VoIP connection.
I also have a Symantec Firewall 360.
If anyone has worked successfully with this or a similiar configuration, please let me know what you did.
When I first tried to make them work together, I put the firewall between the Motorola VoIP devide and the hub.
Symantec said I needed to be on a different network (change the third octet) for this to work.
It did work for outbound connections and direct requests to the internet.
However, it would not work for things like Remote Desktop, it wanted to connect from the outside world into my system.
I wonder, in retrospect if this was because the Motorola was still NAT enabled. It was at 192.168.102.# and the inside network was at 192.168.100.#
I then moved the firewall between my cable modem and the Motorola device. In this setup, everything is on the same network. However, we could never get the Symantec Firewall to pass an IP address to the Motorola device.
I even had Symantec and Vonnage on a conference call with me, to try and work this out.
We tried both static and DHCP addressing, but in this configuration the Motorola/Vonnage device never got an IP address.
