Method/Event Routing


Use method-based or event-based routing to configure the SIP proxy server to route SIP messages on the basis of their content.

Finding Method/Event Routes

Because you might have several method-based or event-based routes in your network, Cisco Unified Presence Server lets you locate specific method-based or event-based routes on the basis of specific criteria. Use the following procedure to locate method/event routes.
