We've never gotten the phone/VPN to work at this particular site. I was just trying to explain that it DOES appear to be successfully connecting to the TFTP server that provisions the phones. The TFTP server is sitting right next to the Asterisk server so if it can connect to one it should be able to connect to the other - basic connectivity, it appears, is working between the sites.

If it does then the problem must be somewhere in the connection and not with the handset itself. If it doesn't work in the other location either then the problem is probably with the phone and/or it's configuration.

I have seen when trying to provision a Polycom phone over the WAN using
tftp the phone lock up. Usually this is cause the TFTP transfer is
crashing in the middle of one of the file transfers due the the nature
(UDP). What I did to fix was use ftp or http over the WAN (TCP) or fire
up a tftp server on the local LAN to do the initial provisioning of the
phone, then point it back to the provisioning server across the WAN.
Could be a problem with the link to. Never hurts to give it a try if you
have another office so close.
