Mitel IP Phone Over VPN

Mitel IP Phone Over VPN

Mitel IP Phone Over VPN

Our current setup is as follows:

In China office - IP Phone (Static IP -> switch -> 1010 -> modem -> vpn tunnel into 1100 in Brisbane office

The 1010 is set up with a branch office connectio(initiator)
End points (LAN) and (remote ip address OF 1100).

Local network netmask
Remote network netmask
Remote network netmask

In Brisbane office - 1100 VPN/ROUTER/FIREWALL
The 1100 is set up with branch office connection (responder)

Local network netmask
Remote network netmask

The plan is to get the ip phone to connect over the VPN onto our local network and be able to communicate with the IP Phone controller 3300 to allow us to make calls between sites. The phone network is -
The controller configuration is

Host Name:
System IP Address:
Subnet Mask:
Gateway IP Address:
Layer 2 (L2) Switch IP Address:
E2T Card IP Address: /

802.1Q Setting (for QoS go to LAN Policy form)
Voice VLAN ID [1-4094]: 1

I cannot ping the controller from any host on the network which suggest that this is
not only a problem for the phone. The strange thing is I can ping anything on the -
(apart from firewall from host ( This suggest the VPN is good (which has already beeen verified)and I can connect to the local network. Something is just stopping me from reaching the .44 network even though Im connecting to the local network over VPN. The local nework can reach the .44 network which suggests there is a static route configured.
On the local network we have a netmask of which wont allow me to reach the network.

(I have opened up a rule in the 1100 firewall to allow the network to access the phone network)

Anybody any ideas how I can get the IP Phone to reach the network over the VPN.
