Ooma Telo as a NAT router?

Post by Bear207 » Wed Sep 19, 2012 12:14 pm

I'm looking for details about the capabilities of the router in the Ooma Telo since it does appear to have basic functionality to operate as a small home office NAT rounter.

I've been using port forwarding for some time with a seperate router (it died) so am rearranging my entire network with the thuoght of using the Ooma as my router.

Cable modem > Telo > 24-port switch > too many toys (Roku, PS3, 3 PCs, NAS, multiple IP CCTV, security / access control system, home automation....).

Making sure the Ooma Telo is up to the task and ensuring it can manage the security necessary to protect a private network using NAT.

Thank you from a long time satisfied customer in Maine.

Why not. It works just fine here. See a previous post of mine;


As far as security goes it seems just fine. I have had both port scans and full security scans done without issues. I do tend to concentrate on application security and not rely on something else. i.e. I run mostly Macs and a Linux box in the network. My sole Windows box is well locked down.
