    How do i realease the port 5060 & 6080 from my firewall to enable the ciso ATA 186 tomake calls


    I’ve been using a Cisco ATA 186 quite successfully however I have a problem which I cannot make head or tail of. Sometimes one of the phones attached to the ATA 186 will not permit calls to get through to their destination and a busy tone is heard. The problem gets worse sometimes and will not let calls get through from both phones, the only solution so far that I’ve come up with is to remove the power supply for a few seconds and reattach it and then it works again. However the problem is becoming more persistent now and this unplugging and replugging in necessary after almost every call. Has nayone experienced this same problem ?
    Does anyone have any solutions please?


    I solve my problem with the default configuration on ATA 186.

    Thanks a lot


    Hi Everybody

    Has anyone configured Sip Gatekeepers Like Partysip , i want my cisco atas 186 to work with sip proxy server

    any help will be highly appreciated .



    I bought a new ATA 186 but It is not working. My configuration table (http://IP/dev) does not have
    Gatekepeer or Proxy field( is missing ).
    Another problem is that I cannot get a dial tone on both telephone ports.

    How could I solve this problem ? Do I need a good firmware to solve the problem ? Please advise me where I can get the firmware or how I can solve this problem.


    Using the indications from DUAL talk, setup your ATA 186 as described on thei page.
    You should get dial tone once you are done.

    Dial 123 # You should hear a test message.

    Dial any number plus a pound at the end.

    You should hear a diferent message.

    After that, open an account with them and send me $10 dollars for the tip.

    I should be running for governor of California…….


    Hi Noname (who are you by the way??),

    I think Fred’s problem is with the firmware he is running. I am not an expert on these boxes; perhaps someone else will be able to help. Is he running the MGCP firmware?


    I am one of your undercover sell agents.
    Just kidding, I have nothing to do with DUAL TALK.

    But we have echanged e-mails on the past , when you were trying the ATA 186 fro the first time on your switch.

    I just liked the way that you responded to the questions that I send you, even when I never bought anything from your company.
    The guilty feeling makes me try to send bussines you way. I think that you deserve it.


    I understand. But, don’t feel guilty.
