Re: not H.323-aware NAT on pix 515 firewall with ios version 7.2
The two major functions of H.323 inspection are as follows:
1)NAT the necessary embedded IPv4 addresses in the H.225 and H.245 messages. Because H.323 messages are encoded in PER encoding format, the security appliance uses an ASN.1 decoder to decode the H.323 messages.
2)Dynamically allocate the negotiated H.245 and RTP/RTCP connections.
Refer the following url for more information on the "inspect H323" command:
