We have been deploying ATA 186s using port forwarding.

Am I correct in understanding that you have been deploying with NAT but without the need for port forwarding.

Could you please describe the required settings on the ATA 

Thanks, Dinesh

    We have deployed many Cisco ATAs behind NAT devices.  In order to keep the NAT session binding alive, we enabled a feature on the ATAs that basically send a small dummy packet to SER every 90 seconds.  Everything works great.  The question is, how can I suppress the WARNING/ERRORS that these dummy packets present to the SYSLOG?  Is there a simple way to do this in the ser.cfg file? 
    These are the SYSLOG messages:
    May  1 09:20:58 maui /usr/sbin/ser[23389]: WARNING: upstream bug - 0-terminated packet
