What is the use of " set external enable" ?

Hello everybody. As I was having some spare-time, I did a " get" while configuring an interface and among other parameters, I found one like this: FWF60C (wan1) # set external disable clear external indicator enable set interface as external Does anybody know, what this parameter should be for? Thanks and regards, F.

from the CLI manual: " Enable to indicate that an interface is an external interface connected to an external network. This option is used for SIP NAT when the config VoIP profile SIP contact-fixup option is disabled."
