The Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP) organizes the communication between a Media Gateway controller, or call agent, and a Media Gateway, e.g. a Voice over IP gateway or a Network Access Server. MGCP is defined in a companion document [1]. This document explains how MGCP can be used to handle 'packet relays', such as firewalls. It contains an introduction, two example call flows, and a discussion of some open questions.
