I dont use STUN server. I just map the 5060 with static-port
and all works perfectly.
Indeed, the IAX conf is way easier, but not that many hw
phones use the IAX protocol.
I was just replying cause I hear a lot of ppl yell "DONT use
SIP when doing NAT, it will BREAK things". And that's just
plain crap. ok, it takes 2 different pf.conf lines.

agreed. Dont want to upgrade everytime you get a new
customer right ? To be honest I never tested beyond 50
concurrent calls. I do know those 50 calls went smoothly
thru a cheap Realtek based card plugged into our good old
Pentium 133 MMX.
