One-way Audio when Calling by SIP Trunk - Caused by Drop All Rule in Firewall


  • Firmware version: Any
  • Model: U-Series
Problem Description

When users makes call by SIP trunk, they have the One-way audion problem that the internal user could not hear the voice. If they register the SIP on the IP phone, the calls would be working fine. Therefore the issue is the PBX.


The PCAP log show the Call flow is complete, and the voice flow is normal. But the provider indicates that their media server IP address is different with the SIP server.


Finally we find the user had enabled the Drop All option in the Firewall menu. And only the SIP server IP address has been configured with accept rules.

One thing we should note is the firewall takes effect after the network capture. Network capture is done by the network layer. 


Add the accept rule for the media server IP address.
