1) Logon to the Draytek via it’s web interface (usually, under ‘Management’ ensure that ‘Telnet’ is enabled.
2) Use Telnet via the Windows Command Prompt, or Putty to establish a command session with the router.
3) Issue the following commands:
sys sip_alg ?
Checks if SIP ALG is enabled or not, if it is:
sys sip_alg 0
sys commit
sys reboot
Saves changes to the router and restarts the device.
