The company I work for is interested in setting up a new phone system using the UC540. We will have 11-15 phones. I have been tasked with setting up the system. How will I set it up to have the phone system sit behind our Watchguard xtm26 firewall. Do we need any extra equipment besides the UC540 and the watchguard xtm26 to accomplish this?
I do not have much knowledge in phone systems, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
As long the firewall is not in between UC and phones, there is no problem in doing that.
Please note, unless you have considerable experience in telephony and networking, it is extremely advisable that you do not try to do the installation and configuration by yourself, if you want sure and fast results, engage a reputable consultant, or UC certified Cisco Partner.
