Vid Con Ports

Vid Con Ports

Vid Con Ports

Hi all

I've got some Polycom HDX9002XL codec's I'm setting up to be directly accessible from external locations for point to point calls.

I've configured a public IP on our Cisco PIX to NAT to the internal IP of the codec's all traffic on ports 1718 (H.323), 1719 (UDP), 1720 (TCP, H.323), 3230-3235 (TCP), 3230-3253 (UDP)...

... but I still can't connect.

Has anyone had experience configuring routing for direct external connectivity with VC condec's (preferably Polycom) before?  Can you give me any pointers on what I might be missing??


RE: Vid Con Ports


I run a Watchguard x750e.

I ended up just putting the 9001 on the outside ( public network) directly.

Now with the latest release of the WG firmware, they have a dedicated proxy just for VC.  I haven't tested it yet but I plan on it.

Can't really help as I dumped h323 a few years ago. Why? Becuase it's an absoloute pig to get through firewalls!
