1. Brekeke Product Name and Version:
SIP Server, Latest Version

2. Java version:
1.8.0

3. OS type and the version:
Windows 7

4. UA (phone), gateway or other hardware/software involved:
Various - 3CX, Yeastar Gateway, etc.

5. Your problem:

I'd like to set up a redundant/mirrored SIP server. I have the first server running. I've looked at the documentation, including the Wiki, and while it explains everything pretty well, it references using a virtual IP address on the two SIP server machines. But, I can't find any information, anywhere, on setting up a virtual IP address on a Windows 7 machine. Can anyone help?

Just add a virtual IP address as a second IP address

Or you can use "netsh" command.

That first link shows how to set a static IP in a machine. That's not a virtual IP address.

The second link shows how to add additional IP addresses to a machine's network interface card. I don't think that is a virtual IP either, as a virtual IP address is not associated with a specific machine's network interface card.

We use the term "Virtual IP Address" in our redundancy mechanism because both Primary and Secondary SIP servers share the same IP address.

Please add this IP address in Primary SIP Server's Windows OS.

Hi Mike, is that always going to be the case? The Primary and Secondary SIP servers having the same IP address.

Hi DamionH,
The same "Virtual IP Address" should not be enabled on both Primary and Secondary server at the same time.
It will be enabled on the Secondary server automatically.
