FreePBX External Extension Oddball Port

Hi everyone, my FreePBX system has been working great for quite a while, but I’ve always have been curious why it uses a oddball port 1024 for one of my remote extensions.

The remote office has a Linksys 3102 with both the Line (111) and PSTN trunk connected along with a Linksys phone extension (112). All extensions work fine at this location.

Maybe I missed a configuration setting somewhere but I did a quick review and all seemed to be ok. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Its because its natted and where that phone resides is telling asterisk if you want to talk with me you need to use this port. Usually done when NAT involved. Its the whole point of NAT>
