Table 134: SCCP ALG Configuration Options





Enables or disables the SCCP ALG.

Click the check box.

Inactive Media Timeout

Indicates the maximum length of time (in seconds) a call can remain active without any media (RTP or RTCP) traffic within a group. Each time an RTP or RTCP packet occurs within a call, this timeout resets. When the period of inactivity exceeds this setting, the Skinny Client Control Protocol (SCCP) ALG the gates opened for media are closed.

Select a value from 10 to 600 seconds.

Call Flood Threshold

Protect Skinny Client Control Protocol (SCCP) ALG clients from flood attacks by limiting the number of calls they attempt to process.

Select a value from 2 to 1,000.

Permit NAT Applied Unknown Message

Specifies how unidentified SCCP messages are handled by the router. The default is to drop unknown (unsupported) messages. Permitting unknown messages can compromise security and is not recommended. However, in a secure test or production environment, this statement can be useful for resolving interoperability issues with disparate vendor equipment. By permitting unknown SCCP (unsupported) messages, you can get your network operational and later analyze your VoIP traffic to determine why some messages were being dropped.

This statement applies only to received packets identified as supported VoIP packets. If a packet cannot be identified, it is always dropped. If a packet is identified as a supported protocol, the message is forwarded without processing.

Click the check box.

Permit Routed Unknown Message

Specifies that unknown messages be allowed to pass if the session is in Route mode. (Sessions in Transparent mode are treated as Route mode.)

Click the check box.
