Tim (krellis) is visiting. First night he's in, we decide to get the cool VoIP phone working. Networks hijinks!!
I had a DSL with all my machines NATed behind one of those magical Netgear 'router' thingys. Now, the phone talks to the controller thing, and the controller tries to talk back to the IP the phone has. In this case, the controller is trying to talk to 192.168.0.25, the internal IP. Enter network hijinks.
We setup one of my freebsd machines to do the PPPoE magic, and run NAT for me. so far so good, when we set up a IP tunnel, so that my interal 192.168.0/24 can talk to the office $something/27 directly.
Plugged in the phone, and poof. I have a Massachusetts phone at my apartment in Lansing, Michigan. I feel so l33t.
