What error are you getting? (If you don't see one, try
a higher trace level.)
If you are getting an ARJ "called party not registered",
and dialing by number (or H.323 ID), you need to define
the external endpoints in [RasSrv::PermanentEndpoints] .
Otherwise, the GK won't know where to send the call.
If you are dialing by IP address (not recommended),
that is not enabled by default, see [RoutingPolicy] .
For GK behind NAT, you need to set up e.g.
when the GK IP address is 192.168.1.123, and the
public IP on the WAN side of the firewall is 220.127.116.11 .
The above does not always work correctly in 2.2.x;
try version 2.0.9 if that meets your requirements and
you're still having trouble. In some cases you
will need to set up some port forwarding on your
Note that if the endpoint you are calling is trying
to register with your GK, but can't, it probably
won't accept the call. If it is registered with
another GK, your call will be diverted to that GK,
and you will have to meet its authentication
requirements. In some cases, your GK will have to
register as a "child" to the other GK.

Subject: [Openh323gk-users] Some basic setup questions
I am brand new to gnugk and related technologies, and am attempting to
setup an h.323 proxy in our environment. Unfortunately, I am having
some troubles, and was hoping some here could help me out.
Basically, I need to allow an h.323 device inside our network to
establish a connection to an h.323 device outside of our network. A
firewall sits in between the devices, and the gnugk server is behind the
firewall. I have turned on the routing functionality and the proxy
functionality, but I am not able to complete a call to an outside
device. The inside device (using MyPhone for testing) successfully
registers with gnugk, and the external device does not (due to the
firewall). When I attempt to make a call to the outside device, I can
see the traffic coming into gnugk, but no traffic ever leaves it -
tcpdump shows no attempt to ever make a connection to the external
My config file (I have blanked out some information for security
Can anyone help me set this up?
