I have a user who wants to make video conferences with external companies over the Internet. Can someone give me an example on how I have to configure my PIX firewall to allow this, please?

Thank you and kind regards,

Depending what software and/or hardware you are using for the video conf. Each vendor works a little different. It also makes a difference if you are joining or hosting the conf.

We use polycom and to host a meeting we have to open about 9 ports and disable the H.323 inspection. Polycom has a document for configureing a pix.

I searched the polycom website and has failed to find a documentation for configuring the PIX. Would you mind sharing the configuration example or post a copy of the example from Polycom.

Much appreciated.

H. Wilson,
