    I have 2 x Vigor 2600Vs, one in my office and one in my home/office. I have
    a handset connected to both in the FXS1 socket, I have a dynamic DNS set up
    and working (as I am using it for a VPN and it works) I have QoS turned

    I have the DDNS alias in the dial plan setup.. as entry 1 I have an entry
    in the name section, is that a problem or only an issue for SIP calls ?

    I dial 1# and the phone at the other end does not ring.... or they dial 9#
    to try and ring me here at home and that does not work either. I have the
    router on that end set up to dial me here at home with an entry for 9 in
    the dial plan setup, with a similar DDNS set up etc . I use homedns.org for
    the DDNS.

    Anything else I need to do ? I presume a standard Telstra type handset
    works ?

    I know absolutely nothing about the Vigor routers or the VOIP protocol they
    are using.
    However I was interested enough to do a little research.
    I discovered the following, Paste below for your info.....Which leads me to
    believe you have to dial the IP number of the called router. I believe it can
    be setup in the phonebook as a quickdial number anyway.

    Saying all of that you may have to look at how you are currently connected
    and may even have to go for a static IP, Alternative is to use the DDNS to
    check the IP of the called computer prior to dialing.

    Using the Voice-over-IP facility is simple. You connect any standard
    telephone to one of the two phone ports on the unit. In the simplest usage
    mode, you lift the handset and dial the IP address of the remote unit ( * is
    used in place of the normal dot). The router then contacts the remote router
    and the phone connected at the other site then rings - the Vigor2600V
    provides ring current and call progress tones to the handset (dialtone, ring
    tone etc.). The remote user lifts his handset and the two parties can then
    talk to each other. More conveniently, you use the phone book to dial remote
    users with a short code and a SIP registar/proxy to locate users
    automatically without needing to know their IP address.

    It is.... using DDNS.
    Should not have to. This is what the DDNS is for.

    Alternative is to
    I have ... I can use the VPN which uses the same DDNS and I can access
    the router via the WWW using the DDNS.

    I will try a directly dialing the IP dial as a method of isolating that
    as the problem. ie if directly dialing the IP still does not work,
    somethgn werrd is up..It could be a problem with the oruter firmware...
    shrug.. Have to wait until Monday and my Ops Manager is back at work for
    some more testing.

    If you can ping the DDNS hostname, then you know there is no problem with
    your Dynamic DNS provider, or your router.

    It sounds like you need some ports opened or forwarded to an internal
