SIP LOAD BALANCING



  • Hello everyone.

    I need to be able to have two SIP servers in the LAN and be able to load balance them, that way if one of then fails the other one will still work, my main concern is that this load balancer has to be a UDP Load balancer. Is there a way to do this with pfsense.

    Thanks in advance for your response.



  • sip phones are on lan too?

    If so try to configure a heartbit on your sip servers.

    Depends on what kind of SIP servers he has on the network. Not all have heartbeat feature.

    I recommend using DNS server for load balancing. Use round robin feature.. you can add both SIP servers in DNS and the request goes in a round robin fashion. You can have multiple SIP servers in load balancing this way.
