How to configure Draytek 27xx and 28xx series routers for VoIP
This config guide applies to following routers:
- Draytek Vigor 2820
- Draytek Vigor 2830
Settings to change:
- Disable SIP ALG
- Allow traffic to/from the following IP addresses: 22.214.171.124/25 and 126.96.36.199/28 (VoiceHost Server IPv4 ranges), may also be ranges 188.8.131.52-254, and 184.108.40.206-206.
- Update Firmware to latest version
- Untick "Accept large fragmented UDP packets" under the firewall configuration
Issues such as one way audio, lack of incoming calls, registration issues and etc. can be due to SIP ALG
To disable SIP ALG you have to telnet into the router and enter the following commands.
1. > sys sip_alg 0 -- Disables sip alg 2. > sys commit -- Apply changes 3. > sys reboot -- Reboot router
Once the router is back online, reboot the IP phone or press re-register.
Incoming Call Problems
This is caused by a large IP SIP packet that is fragmented, but the router will not forward it. I understand that the new version will work if the checkbox under firewall -> general setup -> Accept large incoming fragmented UDP or ICMP packets is UNTICKED. This is the opposite to what you would expect.
