Telepresence m100 - video/audio issue + connectivity issues

Situation is quite strange on my end, and I can't provide much details what is happening.
 
I have 5 different cases when I'm calling my Employer (with and without firewall turned on - on computer and router side).
 
Cases (these issues can occur one after the other - one call after the other, or can be repeated during of a period of calls):
  1. when trying to connect, Polycom says "An error occurred during connection" and is shutting down (closing it self).
  2. when trying to connect, Polycom says that the firewall is blocking inbound traffic (even when firewall is turned off)
  3. when connected my voice is transferred to the other end, but the voice from Employer is not transferred to my side
  4. when connected everything works
  5. when trying to connect, I'm waiting and waiting, and waiting for the answer on Employer side (30-60-90 and seconds) without results
 
This 5 cases can all occur in a period of 15 minutes.
 
It started to be like that in December, the only thing that has changed on my side is:
  • FLEX update from Adobe
  • Update of Telepresence to 1.0.4
 
 
Any help would be appreciated!

Re: Telepresence m100 - video/audio issue + connectivity issues

I still have the same problem, has anybody found a solution to this?  I have opened all of the suggested ports.  I have tried setting the NAT parameters in the m100 POreferences.  Neither have worked.  When I plug my laptop directly into the cable modem, it works fine.  This is not a viable solution, however.  It has to be a router setting, but what am I missing?

TVO,

 

What router do you have at home ?  Some routers struggle with H.323 video..   I assume you have tested with my test site..  If so, did you get a session ID ?  I'll look at the trace on it.

 

Good Luck,

@GaryMiyakawa

 

thats the issue, even calling on your test service i had two cases one after the other one:

  • Connected (Video, no audio, not sure if audio should be there)
  • Blocked by Firewall

These were two calls executed one after the other.

 

Cheers

JakubG,

 

Can you give me the session ID for your calls to the test site ? (it will be in the recent call list or call log and will look like callback15x-xxxxxxx)..   This will let me look at the Sniff trace for each of your calls..   While the problem is most likely in the software, there is a chance it could be in the router as there are some "learning" routers out there...

 

Cheers,

 

Gary M

Re: Telepresence m100 - video/audio issue + connectivity issues

The problem may not be your side.   Did you have the other side test with my site ?  Did it work ?

 

What was your session ID when you called my site ?

Re: Telepresence m100 - video/audio issue + connectivity issues

Hi,

 

Sorry, it took me a while to answer, but I was trying to figure out if this is an issue with firewall and router on my side, so I was testing all possible configurations.

 

I dont know where to look for the session id (my H.323 alias is: 54525239).

 

however not sure whos issue it is but even with your site I sometimes receive firewall blocking message. But with your test side I have more successful connections then with my employer. But still content sharing is not working at all - I can't see what you are sharing in test dial.

 

you can see my discussion of the router and polycom here:

http://homecommunity.cisco.com/t5/Wireless-Routers/EA6500-Polycom-Telepresence-m100-configuration/td...

 

Recently I even unistalled and installed again polycom, tried different versions too. still have that issue :(

 

cheers
