Introduction

SIP ALG is used to try and avoid configuring Static NAT on a router. Its implementation, however, varies from one router to another, often making it difficult to inter-operate a router with SIP ALG enabled with a PBX. In general, you would want to disable SIP ALG and configure one to one port mapping on the router.

In this article, we will show you how to disable SIP ALG on a Netgear router. SIP ALG on this router is known to cause problems with VoIP calls.
