About Configuring the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace H.323/SIP IP Gateway for Use With Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing

You can install Release 5.3 on either the same or separate server as Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing. Release 5.3 uses the primary address, and you must configure Web Conferencing to use the secondary address. If Release 5.3 is installed on a server with more than one IP address, you must define a gateway for each IP address either in Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Cisco SIP Proxy server, or H.323 Gatekeeper for outdials to work.


Note: Before you install multiple Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system integration applications on the same server, ensure that your system meets the requirements for integration. For additional information, see Important Information About Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Products and Cisco Media Convergence Servers at the following URL: http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/conf/mtgplace/mpmcs.htm

How to Configure Cisco Unified Communications Manager for Use With Cisco Unified MeetingPlace H.323/SIP IP Gateway

When a caller dials a number from an IP phone, the call is first directed to Cisco Unified Communications Manager; from there, Cisco Unified Communications Manager associates the dialed number with a route pattern that points to the appropriate IP-gateway server.


Note: Traffic must be allowed to pass through ports 1024-65535 because the IP-gateway server uses these ports to send dynamic TCP and UDP traffic to Cisco Unified Communications Manager.


Before you can install and configure Cisco Unified MeetingPlace H.323/SIP IP Gateway, you must configure Cisco Unified Communications Manager to route calls to the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace H.323/SIP IP Gateway.
