PIX515e and Netmeeting

Cannot get audio to pass through...does anyone know of good cisco doc on passing netmeeting protocols thru a pix 515e?




Re: PIX515e and Netmeeting


NetMeeting requires several IP ports to establish the outbound connection. What need to be opened in your PIX are:

Port / Function


TCP-389 :Internet Locator Server

TCP-522: User Location Service

TCP-1503: T.120

TCP-1720: H.323 call setup

TCP-1731:Audio call control

TCP-Dynamic: H.323 call control

UDP-Dynamic: H.323 streaming (RTP over UDP)

To establish outbound NetMeeting connections through a firewall, the firewall must be configured to do the following:

- Pass through primary TCP connections on ports 389, 522, 1503, 1720, and 1731

- Pass through secondary TCP and UDP connections on dynamically assigned ports (1024-65535)

The H.323 call setup protocol (over port 1720) dynamically negotiates a TCP port for use by the H.323 call control protocol. Also, both the audio call control protocol (over port 1731) and the H.323 call setup protocol (over port 1720) dynamically negotiate UDP ports for use by the H.323 streaming protocol, called the real time protocol (RTP). In NetMeeting, two UDP ports are determined on each side of the firewall for audio and video streaming, for a total of four ports for inbound and outbound audio and video. These dynamically negotiated ports are selected arbitrarily from all ports that can be assigned dynamically.

NetMeeting directory services require either port 389 or port 522, depending on the type of server you are using. Internet Locator Servers (ILSs), which support the lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP) for NetMeeting, require port 389. The User Location Service (ULS), developed for NetMeeting 1.0, require port 522.
