Changing the default external access ports

SIP communication commonly uses TCP or UDP port 5060 and/or 5061. Port 5060 is used for nonencrypted SIP signaling sessions and port 5061 is typically used for SIP sessions encrypted with Transport Layer Security (TLS).

Note

Avoid changing any of the protocol ports to four digit numbers, such as 5065 or 5070, as those are used by other brands and are commonly scanned port numbers.

  1. Go to System > Advanced > External Access.
  2. You have the option to change the following SIP transport protocol ports:
    • UDP: This is the default signaling port used for external extensions, VoIP trunking, and office peers. Choose a five digit number.
    • TCP: This is the default signaling port used for the FortiFone softclient. Choose a five digit number.
    • TLS: This is the default port for SIP sessions encrypted with Transport Layer Security (TLS). Choose a five digit number.
    • WSS: WebSocket Secure is used to support the FortiFone desktop application. Choose a five digit number.
  3. Additionally, you can configure the service external ports. Click Apply when finished.
