Yippeeee! STUN works!

Nokia released a new firmware for their E61 business handsets yesterday and I went through with the free upgrade. The 3.x firmware finally adds STUN support and it also fixes the 100% table width bug with the Services browser. What a relief! Of course, their IM app still doesn’t connect to Yamigo, neither supports WiFi, so there is still room for improvement.

BTW, to get Gizmo working with the new E61 firmware, use the settings here, but use “Auto” as Transport Type instead of the suggested TCP. Now that I have VoIP working, I might actually give a serious look at using the E61 as my main handset instead of the QTek 9100.

Hello there. Where is the STUN setting in the new firmware? I could not find it. OTOH, using AUTO instead of TCP or UDP on SIP settings, I can now receive calls behind my NAT-router. Using UDP setting (my asterisk server only uses UDP) I was able to make but not receive the calls.
Unfortunatelly the two last firmwares still have the nasty bug on which you need to use the blue arrow key to get the numbers on a number only input field. And, odd enough, when numlocking (double blue key) the rest of the keyboard (including dot) becames unusable. It is a pain to input an IP address that way :-(

STUN doesn’t work. There are no STUN settings. Sipgate still requries a port opened in the firewall. How were you able to confirm that STUN works?

This is the admin speaking...

STUN exists now on the v3 firmware. But it’s hardcoded to a Nokia STUN server. You can’t change that setting, but at least exists inside the program, so SIP servers like Gizmo and VoiceBuster now work.

Plese note that some SIP servers don’t require a STUN server, but instead an outbound proxy to be defined. This is true for the FWD and Ekiga SIP services for example.

As for the port in the firewall, this is true for all SIP connections and SIP clients, not just for the E61. Port 5060 must be “port triggered” (port opened for all clients connected to your WiFi router), not “port forwarded”
in your firewall.
