The port is the port that is detected using the STUN test. STUN is there
to determine what port the gateway will use for your traffic. It can not
be 5060, because if it was 5060, then you could only have one SIP client
running at a time in your private network. If the NAT is symmetric, it
is impossible to guess the port that will be used on the router.
