WhatsApp Calling not working

Any suggestion how to get WhatsApp Calling working through the firewall?


  • For the record, what firewall model & Fireware version are you running?

    What do you see in Traffic Monitor when this connection is tried?

  • In my Fireware v12.7.x Https-Proxy , I selected predefined content to exclude: *.whatsapp.net and *.web.whatsapp.com
    I can make calls through WG just fine.

  • OP wants to know how to get WhatsApp to work and you tell us how to block it. Amazing.

    @morpheus27 I stand corrected, no need to be snarky.

    @JulieWok If it's not working, it's likely that there is a proxy action or application control rule blocking it. Do you see any deny lines in your firewall's traffic monitor when you try and initiate a call. That should help point you in the right direction on what needs to be modified.
    I'd suggest determining why it's being blocked before making rule changes.
