    I'm trying to set up an extension from home. I have a site to site VPN set up between two Sonicwall TZ-170's with no rules blocking any ports so NAT shouldn't be a problem.

    When setting up the 3cx softphone I get this repeatedly in the log:

    20:47:28,517: T:
    REGISTER sip: SIP/2.0
    Via: SIP/2.0/UDP;branch=z9hG4bK002381dcdc7ddc1191d300c049f44662
    From: 3CX Phone <sip:105@>;tag=10092
    To: <sip:105@>
    Call-ID: 80006294-DC7D-DC11-91D3-00C049F44662@

    Max-Forwards: 70
    User-Agent: SIPPER for 3CX Phone
    Expires: 900
    Content-Length: 0

    The 3cx server is and the local IP is I can ping back and forth with no problem.

    I tried with the external extension checkbox both checked and un-checked.

    I have the 3cx phone configured as per the screenshots, I've also tried X-Lite and a SNOM 360 softphone, all with no luck.

    I see no activity in the 3cx server logs that show anything trying to connect.

    Any ideas?

    It should be firewall issue. I'm hit this issue before. For Netscreen NS25 (Screen OS 5.0.0r8) to Draytek (LAN to LAN). I need to upgrade the Screen OS to 5.4.0r6 for solved this issue. If you are now using 3CX softphone. I suggested that to change X-Lite instead. Its a freeware. It may be help to solve your registration issue via your VPN. If still not help. Please try to use Wireshark to capture the NIC activities for communication between your phone and 3cx box for future investigate.
    e.g - 3CX BOX at Office - Eyebeam at Home
