Application to test STUN + broadband?

I was wondering if someone knew of an application that could check
that the user has a firewall and a broadband connection that will work
OK with Asterisk and VoIP.
The app would first perform some bandwith + jitter tests, and will
then call a STUN server to check that the firewall isn’t symetric.

BTW, is Asterisk now STUN-capable, or is it still to map ports
manually on the firewall to connect it to a VOSP trunk?

Thank you.

  • Hi!

    Until Asterisk 1.8 STUN support was faulty, and in 1.8 it has been corrected (?) and strongly
    limited. Search the asterisk-dev mailing list archive for STUN and do the same in the Asterisk
    bug tracker for more details. I think the essence was that in 1.8 STUN support will help to
    discover the own dynamic IP address, but not anything beyond that.
