I have two offices and a VPN-tunnel between them (Kerio Control 8.6).
In office1 i have SIP-PBX, in office2 i have SIP-phone.
In "Bandwidth Management and QoS" i set rule with Traffic Type = SIP VoIP, reserve 512 kbit/s, and check Chart.

But, when i call from phone to PBX, rule don't work!

I believe this is because your traffic is perceived as VPN traffic rather than SIP in this case. You can test this by doing the following:

1. Status-->Active Hosts-->[Choose your VPN user]
2. View the "Connections" tab
3. Place a test phone call from office 2 SIP phone
4. Observe the entry in "Bandwidth Management Rule" column (display it if it's not already). It's likely to be blank/empty.

If your SIP QoS rule is not being applied, then add VPN to the Traffic Type in your QoS rule and then repeat the 4 steps above. You should now see that QoS rule being applied during your phone call.

You might, ultimately, decide to simply prioritize VPN traffic within QoS as a matter of practice.

I want to point out this is not a bug.
QoS for SIP is mentioned on WAN ports.
VPN tunnel is NOT a WAN port. So use the VPN QoS like Ken has mentioned.

If you take a good look at the QoS management you can see you can't select other interfaces the only the WAN interfaces.
