G'day Guy,

H.323 is almost impossible to get working through a firewall, even more so if there's a firewall at
each end.  There are some "H.323 Gatekeepers" that are available for some firewall/router platforms,
however I'd flick the old H.323 gear and use SIP instead as that's a lot easier to get working.

This has been an issue right from the start with H.323 due to poor design of the protocol with
respect to NATting.

War doesn't determine who is right.  War determines who is left.
