Introduction

This document describes how to set up the Cisco TelePresence Server to work with the Cisco Video Communication Server (VCS).

Prerequisites

Requirements

Cisco recommends that you have knowledge of these topics:

  • Cisco TelePresence VCS
  • Cisco TelePresence Servers

Components Used

The information in this document is based on these software and hardware versions:

  • Cisco TelePresence VCS
  • Cisco TelePresence Servers

The information in this document was created from the devices in a specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with a cleared (default) configuration. If your network is live, make sure that you understand the potential impact of any command.

Set up the TelePresence Server to Work with the VCS

The Cisco VCS can be both a H.323 gatekeeper and a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) registrar for a TelePresence Server. You can register the TelePresence Server's H.323 ID with one Cisco VCS and its SIP address with another. It is also possible to register both with the same VCS, dependent upon your network setup and VCS configuration.

In order to configure the TelePresence Server to register with a Cisco VCS, log in to the TelePresence Server and choose Configuration > System settings and then:

Register with the VCS That Acts as a H.323 Gatekeeper

  1. Check the Use gatekeeper check box.
  2. Enter the address of the Cisco VCS in the Address field.
  3. Enter the H.323 ID of the TelePresence Server.
  4. Click Apply changes.

Register with the VCS That Acts as a SIP Registrar

  1. Enter the address of the Cisco VCS in the Outbound address field.
  2. Enter the SIP username of the TelePresence Server.
  3. Click Apply changes.

Go to the Status page in order to check the registration status.

Tip: Refer to the online help for more details on the H.323/SIP registration settings.
