I've got a Cisco 877 router connecting to FTTC. The 877 is currently doing NAT overload for devices on the network. I've tried and failed to get a SIP trunk working with NAT in this configuration, but always get one way audio on incoming calls. Outgoing calls are working fine. I was thinking that I could make use of an ASA 5505 that I have and configure the 877 in bridge mode and assign a public IP's to the ASA, then let the ASA peform the NAT overload for devices and hopefully get incoming SIP calls working.
I haven't worked at all with an ASA, so its all going to be new to me. I've been reading around, but can't find a clear example of how I would set this up.
Would I be assinging a second public IP to the ASA and doing 1:1 static NAT to an internal IP on the CME? If I did it this way, will the ASA 5505 re-write the SIP headers correctly?
Do I need to place the CME in a DMZ?
Or would I put the public IP on CME 4.1 device and then protect with the ASA (somehow - I told you the ASA was new to me!)
Either way, I need to put an ACL on to only allow 3 IP's from my ITSP to ever be allowed to talk to the CME.
I'm just after pointers on how to get the equipment I've got working
