I agree that NAT traversal is a huge issue in the SOHO/Small office
environment. If the Verbiage (sp?) IAX capable phone is a good product
then it will become my preference over the Snom 200. I have several
Snom 200s and I like them very much. However, the simplicity of IAX2
installation is too good to pass up.
