Port 5061 Issue on FWSM

We are running a FWSM and have created ACL's for a new Lync install.  One of the rules needs to have port 5061 access from any source to our front edge server for communication.  When looking at the logs I see a hit on the ACL but nothing ever actually connects. 

One possible issue I see is possibly in the inspect:

policy-map global_policy

class inspection_default

  inspect ftp

  inspect h323 h225

  inspect h323 ras

  inspect rsh

  inspect sqlnet

  inspect sunrpc

  inspect xdmcp

  inspect sip

  inspect netbios

  inspect tftp

  inspect pptp

class class_sip_tcp

  inspect sip

In the inspect sip this is only for port 5060.  How do I set this up to allow port 5061?

Port 5061 Issue on FWSM

Hi Rick,

Assuming you want the inspection to process both TCP/5060 and TCP/5061, the config would look like this (otherwise adjust the 'match' command in the class-map accordingly):

class-map class_sip_tcp

   match port tcp range 5060 5061

policy-map global_policy

   class class_sip_tcp

     inspect sip

service-policy global_policy global

Keep in mind, though, that the FWSM's inspection engine cannot process encrypted traffic. So if TCP/5061 is encrypted via TLS you don't want to enable the inspection for this traffic.
