Sunrocket gizmo port forwarding

Discussion in 'VOIP' started by Sergio Fernandez, May 7, 2005.

  1. I got the sunrocket gizmo, works great,

    one problem, I have a web server and when it gets connected past the gizmo,
    the site is not reachable?

    I can use a router before the gizmo to route it, but for performance of the
    voip box, I think it ould be best to have it as teh first device....


    I tried doing a port forwarding on the gizmo on port 80 to the web server
    put does nto seem to work... has anyone been able to route port requests
    from the gizmo to the corresponding machine?

  2. The gizmo can function either in front of or behind the router. it
    shouldn't make much of a difference where it is placed. Wherver it
    works best for you is where you should put it. With regards to the
    port, you should ask a Sunrocket customer support rep. They are really
    friendly and do a good job of answering questions in a timely manner.
    Give them a shout and see if they can help you.

  3. I spoke with sun rocket, I will have to put the gizmo behind the router.
    and, yeah so far they have been great.

    only one issue, currently I'm only able to make outgoing calls, don't have
    incomming calls yet active... I hope that feautre does not take long.

  4. If I remember correctly, it took between 6-8 days for my incoming calls
    to start working. I hardly even think about that now after having been
    with SunRocket for awhile. All the benefits have FAR outweighed any
    wait I had at the beginning. I hope you have as good an experience as
    I have.

  5. 6- 8 days... lucky you... I'm still waiting... but again
    can't complain... its a great deal.

    but, if its not resolved by early next week, it will start to go on for
    about 3 weeks and no incoming.
    but agina, once its resolved it will be great.

  6. You get the incoming calls yet? I figured you would be pretty close to
    getting it all setup by now. How do you like the overall service so
    ukcats4218016, May 17, 2005
  7. no incoming yet......

    the service is great, unlimited calls for a great price.....
    but the incoming is taking to long to get set up, I'm looking into other
    just in case this week goes by and I still have no incoming.

  8. Well, I hope you get your incoming calls sometime soon. Once you get
    them, you'll be glad you waited. I've saved almost $500 since I
    started using Sunrocket instead of my old landline. It's amazing how
    fast the savings start adding up. let me know when you get up and
    ukcats4218016, May 18, 2005
  9. If I don't have incoming by tomorrow, I'm swiching to vonage.
    I rather pay more than wait any longer.

    what good is saving $500 if no one can call you. outgoing only line has its
    uses, however
    its more imporntant for me to get incoming.

  10. someday someone will have to explain why it takes so long to get things
    it just does not make any sense.
    sergio Fernandez, May 19, 2005
  11. I just change to a different providers.

    to bad, the price for sunrocket made it a great deal.
    but, thats more of a service for someone who has way to much time to spend
    waiting for incoming.

    if things go well ,with vonage, I will just get a few more number with them

  13. Did you at least wait until your incoming calls were working with
    SunRocket? I just heard over the weekend of a way to speed up the
    incoming call process. I hope you haven't toally given up on them yet.
    ukcats4218016, May 23, 2005
  14. switched to vonage, I will probably try sunrocket in the future again, but I
    just cant wait almost a month for

    the should have number ready at least for the bigger cities like New York,
    I've never had to wait this long to get
    a phone line setup in the city, its just does not make sense given what the
    process to get incoming must be.

    I feel sorry for how long you've had to wait. I signed up for SunRocket
    last Tuesday, received the equipment on Friday. Hooked everything up
    and within a minute had incoming and outgoing calls. Couldn't have been
    easier. I paid a year in advance @ $199 making it a great deal @ $16.58
    a month.

  16. Like I said, the people were friendly and the deal ... can't be beat.
    but, I would not wait any longer,and I know I'm not the only one.
    after time had passed, I did a search on the net for "sunrocket and no
    and I found other people had to wait also for more than 3 weeks.

    today I got my vonage voip box, and as soon as I connected the Voip router,
    and run the setup wizard,
    I was all set.

    the price of sun rocket is great. I think since I did not take the year I
    took the month to month, I was probably pushed back.
    but, since I had never used voip before I did not want to commit to a year
    without testing the sound quality of voip.
    but now since I see that its as good as non voip phone lines, I'm going to
    get a few more lines... so, Sunrocket might
    still get an order form me soon, since I got incoming for my main line, I
    can wait for the other lines.

  17. If you sign up with SunRocket again, try setting up your voicemail once
    you hook the gizmo up. Apparently, setting up your voicemail expedites
    the process of receiving incoming calls. Hopefully, that will help if
    you give them another shot.

    That may be why I had incoming calls as soon as I hooked the gizmo up
    as I setup my voicemail right after I signed up.
    Todd, May 24, 2005
  19. why would setting up voice mail make a differenece?
    anyway, I had my own voice mail equipment. I would not use their voicemail.
    Sergio Fernandez, May 24, 2005
  20. Why would that make a difference, what about if you don't plan on using
    their voice mail?
    it just does not make sense.
