here is the sample config:

hostnames: cme1, cme2

cme1 (gwgk):

----gk config------

gatekeeper

zone local cme1 domain.com

zone local cme2 domain.com

zone prefix cme1 1...

zone prefix cme2 2...

bandwidth total zone cme1 64 (4x16kbps per call)

bandwidth total zone cme2 64

gw-type-prefix 1#* technology

arq reject-unknown-prefix

-----gw config------

interface loopback 1

ip add

h323-gateway voip interface

h323-gateway voip id cme1 ipaddr

h323-gateway voip h323-id [email protected]

h323-gateway voip tech-prefix 1#

h323-gateway voip bind srcaddr

!

gateway

!

(pointing all voip call to gatekeeper)

dial-peer voice 10 voip

destination-pattern 2...

session target ras

----------------------------------

Then configure the same gateway config at cme2. replace the following:

id = cme2

h323-id = [email protected]

session target = 1...

Hi,

You can do that but I think is really not necessary to configure GK for two sites. Just configure max-conn to 4 under dial-peer.

Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!

Yes. Best practice means doing the most with simplest configuration.

Thanks for the nice rating and good luck!

I need to set up a CME to CME system with one CME as GK as well. However, I will only be working with ip addresses and will not have DNS available. Do you know what i must do in such a case?

Thanks,

This is meant for a lab just to get the concept down. Down the road may use it for larger systems.
