pfSense and FreePBX


#1

How do you have your pfSense Firewall Optimization setup ?
Normal or Conservative ?
What other setting have you changed in pfSense for FreePBX to work properly ?


#2
  1. We have FreePBX setup so to use NAT so there are NO ports open on the pfsense.
    2)in pfsense, we just have CodelQ https://youtu.be/iXqExAALzR8

Thx

Tom, what you are saying is, By setting NAT like on this photo. I dont have to open SIP and RTP ports on pfSense ? i’m new to FreePBX just want to make sure.

That looks right, watch my video on it to make sure.

Tom. When i disabled my NAT rules to forward 5060 and 10000:20000 to my freepbx. i lost my audio. I had to reenable it to get audio back.

We are using https://www.vitelity.com/ I am not sure if every sip provider supports that config.


#7

understood. thank you.


#8

Last question regarding NAT. You have it set up as NAT 1:1 on your pfsense ?


#9

nope, we do not. As I said, it may not be something that your SIP provider can do. Crosstalk Solutions knows much more about that https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVS6ejD9NLZvjsvhcbiDzjw

Thanks. I watched all Chris’s videos about FreePBX 14 and most of yours.
You are doing great job! Thanks again

They are most likely using a STUN or TURN server that holds open a port translation started by the FreePBX server.
