[asterisk-users] SIP trunk down. Wireshark shows ICMP Communication administratively filtered

Sounds like a firewall setting to me. If you can ping, then Internet
Control Message Protocol (ICMP) packets are allowed, but if SIP traffic is
returning the ICMP Type 3 (code 13) response, then your SIP ports are
blocked (at least the firewall admin was nice enough to leave the reason
code messaging enabled).
Get in touch with your firewall admin and have them forward TCP/UDP 5060,
4569, 5036, and UPD 10000:20000 and 2727 to your Asterisk box IP address.
Make sure they white-list the traffic they pass, so get the IP adress(es)
of your ITSP and only have the firewall accept traffic on those ports from
that(those) address(es). That's your first line of defence on toll fraud.
If the firewall has a VoIP helper function that opens up UDP ports as
needed during a session start, that should reduce your attack surface too.
