Gatekeeper and blast and seq

Unanswered Question
Dec 14th, 2007

we have two gks(gk1 and gk2). a 3rd gw is going to setup as remote zone. The idea is call through the 3rd gk to gk1 and gk2 will share the use of gk1 and gk2. What command can achieve?

I found the statement:

remote zone gk1 7* blast/seq

remote zone gk2 7* blast/seq.

blast or seq will help?

I have this problem too.

The blast and seq are for redundancy purposes, in seq you would always use the first gk and then the second while in blast you will send an lrq to both and the first one to answer will be the selected one.

What do you mean by the 'sharing' functionality, is that for load balancing or for redundancy? Have you considered gatekeeper cluster?

HTH, Avner.

Dear Pros

If I need for loadbalancing via 02 GKs (my 02 providers) and they use non-Cisco device, so what can I do from my IOS GK?

Clustering is only for Cisco-based device to form a cluster, am I right?
