OK, but they need to fix documentation and directions, if they have not already. If special provision is needed for firewalls and routers, then they need to give concise and clear directions on what is required. Currently there is a long, rambling section on use with firewalls and routers. Maybe that section in the wiki needs to be deleted or updated.
If the correct procedure is to do nothing because it's done already, then (1) that's how the program _should_ work, and (2) that section is an irrelevant diversion--one more complication out of many, many problems with getting VOIP working.

Arghh. Thanks. Thanks, maybe I'll try that. It might apply to other programs. If that is the problem, they need to display an error message instead of displaying nothing. And it would be preferable still if the program would simply handle the problem automatically.
