VPN - Connect issues

Answered

Hi all, 

 

The Telstra supplied Netgear router does no allow VPN traffic. Telstra finally admitted there is an issue with the Netgear routers today after a week of frustration.

So i have purchased a TP link router which just fine with the VPN (hooray). The problem is my telephone does not work now. 

Does anyone know the:

SIP Proxy and

Outbound Proxy

settings to put into the advanced settings. 

Is the registrar address connect.telstra.com

Is there anything else i need - i have the authentication number an PW. 

 

I have wasted days of my life on this.

The only way to get phone working on a Telstra NBN service using a third party modem is to connect the Telstra modem's WAN port to a LAN port on the TP link modem. The VOIP service only works with a Telstra modem.
