Cisco TelePresence Server

Setting up the TelePresence Server with a Cisco VCS

How do I set up the Cisco TelePresence Server to work with Cisco TelePresence Video Communication Server (Cisco VCS)?

The Cisco VCS can be both an H.323 gatekeeper and a SIP registrar for a TelePresence Server. You can register the TelePresence Server's H.323 ID with one Cisco VCS to and its SIP address with another, or register both with the same VCS - depending on your network setup and VCS configuration.

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

To register with the VCS acting as H.323 gatekeeper:

  1. Check the Use gatekeeper 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.

To register with the VCS acting as 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 to check the registration status. Refer to the online help for more details on the H.323 / SIP registration settings.
