It has been disabled lately by our major Internet Provider.
Is there any hack?

I'm not trying to go off topic but if Skype is NOT blocked that may be a workaround (or backup) alternative for you to consider if you are really stuck.

With Skype you at least have some flexibility to program the ports that are used and that makes it a bit trickier to block.

For more details on using your magicJack USB dongle with Skype see this other thread: http://www.phoneservicesupport.com/skyjack-software-plugin-adds-skype-calling-t7980.html

Good Luck !!!

Try http://www.hotspotshield.com/

Being in Canada, there are US network videos I cannot watch but if I run http://www.hotspotshield.com/, I can watch them.

See if it will work for you with your MagicJack.

You may want to pose your question at a few more general internet voip websites (like dslreports.com or voxilla.com). Your problem is not unique to MagicJack but applies to all VOIP traffic your country.

You may also want to check knowkedgeable folks in your country who are dealing with the same issue.

Good luck

Best way would be using a VPN service.

My favorite one is: http://www.vpnmaster.com

Use a sip (not http) proxy service. These are starting to spring up because of the exact problem you are faced with. I can't endorse one as an example because I haven't had the need to use one, but perhaps this steers you in the right direction. A VPN service could work but is overkill in lieu of a proxy service designed to solve this problem, and may introduce some noticeable latency. Good Luck.

BTW, MJ uses port 5070 for sip (not 5060, the standard). The proxies I mention should let you choose suitable ports for your needs, and may (probable) require some software to be installed to translate the sip port locally. Sounds like a pitb, but thank your internet provider for that!

A possible hack might be available in your local router. Here in the United States many big providers use either ipchains or iptables written into the custom firmware on the routers they provide.

For example, Verizon FIOS uses an ipchains firewall in the router they provide (the ones I've handled), and simply by dumping and modifying their firmware you can modify the portion of the ipchains that the http maintenance interface can't modify. This allows you to enable incoming port 80 for example. The http interface seemingly allows this port to be enabled but since it is disabled at a higher level in the ipchains, it is still unusable without modifying the firmware.

This method has become common because port blocking anywhere other than on the consumers end is undesirable because of the problem with providing commercial service and residential service on the same physical segment. So much easier for them this way.
