I have installed and setup Kerio Operator using VMWare image and so far so good.

So far I cannot see any way in Kerio admin in which I can specify that the server is behind a NAT router.

Of all the SIP solutions I have tried to date, only those from SwitchVox have managed to provide a straightforward and successful approach to PBX behind NAT

In previous tests of alternative distros of Asterisk (Elastix, AsteriskNow, PBX In a Flash, etc) I have always battled with setting up the PBX behind my local NAT router. Kerio has been no exception and although the required ports on my firewall have been opened (5000 thru 31000) and forwarded to the Kerio Operator server, I cannot receive any calls.

We are a long term user of Kerio Connect and are very interested in extending our usage to include Operator.

Hi,

With the SIP providers we have tested so far, we had to do no special configuration on the firewall. We were able register with the provider, place and receive calls behind NAT without problems. There was no need for port mapping.

Who is your SIP provider?

Thanks for your response.
My provider in the UK is Draytel and I am able to make SIP calls without any problem.
Receiving calls is the problem and in all previous version of Asterisk this has been addressed by a combination of port forwarding at the firewall and config settings on the PBX to identify that NAT is involved and the router's public FQDN
As mentioned, this has worked well in the case of SwitchVox PBXs but note others.
