I guess I need my head examined :) I have the following setup at a few
With polycom &------------------->
Cisco config files
The cisco and polycom phones basically pull the configuration files from
the asterisk server via tftp (why cisco and polycom have chosen to do
this is beyond me, but anyway). I too would prefer to use monowall over
anything else. I know there is no easy way to get tftp to work through
NAT, but can somebody please send me instructions on how to do this.
With VoIP becoming more popular every day, I can see a growing need to
allow tftp traffic through the wan interface. I would gladly pay for a
fix for this.
