I am trying to set up Asterisk at home.
I think I'm having trouble configuring my firewall, so that inbound traffic is accepted, but I am not sure.

I got the idea that, perhaps, there is a service out on the Internet, where I can, though a web-browser, initiate an incoming call, an INVITE. And then see the SIP-trace that the remote-part experience.

Anyone know of such a service?

Note. I have a SIP-PSTN provider so I can generate inbound calls. But I cannot see the SIP-logs from my provider...

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

You might be able to get by using AIX or STUN/TURN/ICE. more info on the latter here: Typically it is used to bypass NAT, but bypassing inbound firewall rules should be a happy side-effect as it is based on creating outbound connections and proxying relevant data that way.
