Don't know if this applies to the Telo, but this is from their knowledgebase in August, 2009:wasiftoor wrote:Which ports will be used by the Ooma system? does it utilize standard sip ports like 5060?
ooma uses the following application ports for outbound data and voice traffic:
UDP 53, UDP 123, UDP 514, UDP 1194,UDP 3386, UDP 3480, UDP 10000-20000, TCP 53 and TCP 443.
This port information can be useful if you have a special network configuration with a firewall device upstream of the ooma Hub that restricts application ports on the inside or "private side" of your network for outbound traffic. Firewalls are typically on by default for inbound traffic and no special modifications are required to allow that traffic through.
If you are installing the ooma Hub for the first time and find the line 1 and line 2 buttons are illuminated, you may have a firewall on your router or modem preventing certain ooma traffic from going through as shown in the example diagram below:
To verify you are running into this problem, connect a computer to the "HOME" port of the ooma Hub. Using this computer, verify you can reach http://setup.ooma.com in a web browser. Next, try browsing to a public website (such as http://www.google.com or http://www.yahoo.com). If the web connection to the public website is successful, you may have a firewall blocking ooma's service ports and will need to configure firewall policies to allow ooma's data and voice ports. For more information on configuring firewall policies, please refer to your modem/router user manual.
All service traffic (including voice traffic) to and from ooma's central servers is securely encrypted. Note for ooma systems used with landlines: local calls are typically forwarded through your existing landline connection.
Hope this helps.

Thank you very much for the info. This will go a long way forward in my decision. Offcourse i want to know about Mr_clean's question as well.
Also is the new Telos device avaialble if i get a new account or do i have to go with the old device?
Is the new device well tested or is it better to go with the HUB at this stage?
