You need a layer 2 tunnel that can pass multicast.

No .

 

Your IP settings will have to be set for the network . 

 

We do not support what is called NAT routing over the network ( Router to Router ) So the audio will nto work . You must set up a tunnel like the previous post suggests , but it has to be a hardware , not a software VPN . Multicast will have to be set up as a GRE tunnel in order to pass it back and forth on your tunnel  , lites , time and date display for 2 examples ....

 

Just an FYI :  PCXSet will work across a software VPN with no tunnel ( hardware solution ) needed . A hard phone needs the tunnel due tot he restrictions listed above . it is not recommended to put your whole NBX outside of the Network either as you want some sort of protection against hacking etc .
