H.245 session helpers (h245I and h245O)

H.245 is a control channel protocol used for H.323 and other similar communication sessions. H.245 sessions transmit non-telephone signals. H.245 sessions carry information needed for multimedia communication, such as encryption, flow control jitter management and others.

FortiOS includes two H.245 sessions helpers, h245I which is for H.245 call in and h245O which is for H.245 call out sessions. There is no standard port for H.245. By default the H.245 sessions helpers are disabled. You can enable them as you would any other session helper. When you enable them, you should specify the port and protocol on which the FortiGate unit receives H.245 sessions.
