About This Document
This document contains information about how to configure the Cisco Unified SIP Proxy system using the CLI. Use it in conjunction with the CLI Command Reference for Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Release 8.5, which lists all the CLI commands.
Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Release 8.5 utilizes both a command-line interface (CLI) and a graphical user interface (GUI).
•Graphical User Interface
The CLI is a text-based interface accessed through a Telnet session to the router hosting Cisco Unified SIP Proxy. Those familiar with Cisco IOS command structure and routers will see similarities.
The Cisco Unified SIP Proxy commands are structured much like the Cisco IOS CLI commands. However, the Cisco Unified SIP Proxy CLI commands do not affect Cisco IOS configurations. After you log in to Cisco Unified SIP Proxy, the command environment is no longer the Cisco IOS environment.
The CLI is accessible from a PC or server anywhere in the IP network.
Graphical User Interface
Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Release 8.5 introduces a GUI that is used to configure and operate the Cisco Unified SIP Proxy system.
For information on using the GUI, see the online help in the application or the GUI Administration Guide for Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Release 8.5.
GUI information is not within the scope of this document.
