How do I move Freeswitch to a VIP?



  • I would very much like to move Freeswitch to a virtual IP, I need to some QoS on the outbound, as it's very low capacity, and so far the ZyXEL provided by the ISP doesn't do a good job on traffic analysis, so I would like to move the Freeswitch to it's own IP instead.
    But how do I make sure that all traffic originates and terminates at the VIP?



  • You need the IP addresses that are assigned to the internal and external profile and restart freeswitch. If you did it right the VIP ip address will show on the status tab in the information.

    Ok, so if I look in external.xml these lines needs to be changed?

    <param name="rtp-ip" value="$${local_ip_v4}">
        <param name="sip-ip" value="$${local_ip_v4}">

    To

    <param name="rtp-ip" value="217.157.new.vip">
        <param name="sip-ip" value="217.157.new.vip">

    But if I do that I get an 'invalid profile' shown in the status pages.
    But the Internal.xml setting still needs to be set to my internal IP, right?



  • Seems like that should work but I haven't tried making it listen on a VIP yet.
