ToS/QoS/Traffic Shaping

Current residential internet services have low upload bandwidth, so conflict can easily occur between VoIP calls and other network traffic. The traffic shaping features can eliminate the conflict when properly configured.

  1. Determine your upload bandwidth. One way is to run a Speed Test at http://www.dslreports.com/stest.
  2. Set the Uplink Bit Rate on the SIP QoS Settings page. For example, on a Comcast cable modem with 350kbps upload, set the Uplink Bit Rate to 350.
  3. On the RESET page, choose Reset and execute Main Application.

Miscellaneous

Incoming PPTP VPN works with port 1723 forwarded to an internal VPN server.

If you plan to dial this device directly, make sure it isn't behind a firewall using NAT (like a broadband router). The lack of STUN support means it can't deal with NAT.

To use a SIP server on the LAN side of the UIP1868:
  1. Tell your server to listen on a port other than 5060-5061 and 10000-10015. In Asterisk this is bindport in sip.conf
  2. Forward the server port through the UIP1868 on the LAN Port Forwarding page
  3. Set the UIP1868 SIP Outbound Proxy and Registrar the WAN IP of the UIP and the port forwarded above


UIP1868 and Asterisk

  1. Set SIP Server and Outbound Proxy and Registrar to Asterisk server
  2. Set Phone Number to Asterisk SIP devicename (can be numbers, letters, and symbols)
  3. Set Password
  4. On the RESET page, choose Reset and execute Main Application. Do this anytime you change SIP settings.
  5. After the reset, look for Line 1 Status: Register Success on the SIP Status page. The call agent light should be steady. A short ring indicates successful registration, and Incoming Call is displayed on the base unit.

UIP1868 and VoiceMeUp.com
