In addition to opening ports 10000-20000, as per this page,
you also need to open these ports for outgoing connections:

DNS: Port 53 UDP (Domain Name Server - for resolving server IP addresses)
TFTP: Port 69 UDP (for profile upgrades/downgrades)
HTTP: Port 80 UDP (for firmware upgrades/downgrades)
NTP: Port 123 UDP (Network Time Protocol - so the device can sync to the 
proper time for Caller ID)
SIP: Port 5061 UDP is used for older Vonage devices (devices provisioned 
before 2005) Also, BSP Proxy Groups 1-8, and a.voncp.com communicate on 
port 5061.

Adding firewall rules to do all of that worked successfully for a vonage 
connection I had inside a m0n0wall-protected network.
