Re: [Efw-user] Help! SIP proxy issue Kevin Murphy Thu Mar 17 17:01:20 2011

I agree that upgrading is probably a good idea but I am not sure this will 
solve your issue.  The whole point of the SIP proxy is to help with SIP 
firewall transversal.  I have used endian on a lot of sites now with asterisk 
VoIP boxes behind them and it works really well once you have a good config.  
From your original description, I would guess that probably the endian firewall 
isn't to blame in this situation - just because it works again when you reboot 
doesn't have to mean that the firewall was causing the issue.  Try just 
disconnecting your WAN port then reconnecting, so see if this makes a 
difference.  I take it that when you have problems with the phones registering 
with the SIP server, the rest of the services on the endian are unaffected?  ie 
web surfing, mail etc?  
If you can provide a bit more info about your setup I maybe able to offer you 
some more detailed help
