Are you sure the range is always 12000-16000? I got this reply from the 
Vivox gateway during testing:


Not sure if that port range is for the server or the client or both, or 
if it is even used, but SIP/RTP are definitely going to be using a 
couple different ports here and there.

This is incorrect. It looks like the SLVoice.exe does the initial handshake over 5060/5062 but then establishes the voip connections themselves over UDP ports which afaict are picked at random within the 12000-16000 range. If you firewall does not have this range open by default for outgoing messages, not only does VOIP not work but you get spammed with "Connecting to inworld voice..." every few minutes in the chat history log).
