Static Routes


Use static routes to configure a static route that the SIP proxy server uses. A dynamic route represents a path through the network that gets automatically calculated according to routing protocols and routing update messages. A static route represents a fixed path through the network that you explicitly configure. Static routes take precedence over dynamic routes.

Finding Static Routes

Because you might have several static routes in your network, Cisco Unified Presence Server lets you locate specific static routes on the basis of specific criteria. Use the following procedure to locate static routes.


Note During your work in a browser session, the cookies on the client machine store your find/list search preferences. If you navigate to other menu items and return to this menu item, or if you close the browser and then open a new browser window, the system retains your Cisco Unified Presence Server search preferences until you modify your search.


Procedure


Step 1 Choose Unified Presence Server > Proxy Server > Static Routes.

The Find and List Static Routes window displays. Use the two drop-down list boxes to search for capabilities assignments.

Step 2 From the first Find Static Routes window drop-down list box, choose one of the following criteria:

Destination Pattern

Description

Next Hop

Priority

Weight

From the second Find Servers window drop-down list box, choose one of the following criteria:

begins with

contains

is exactly

ends with

is empty

is not empty

Step 3 Specify the appropriate search text, if applicable, and click Find.


Tip To find all static routes that are registered in the database, click Find without entering any search text.

Step 4 From the list of records, click the static route that matches your search criteria.

The window displays the static route that you choose.

Deleting a Static Route

This section describes how to delete a static route.
