When creating a Rhino SIP Servlet RA entity, you must also configure how it will connect to the network.

Rhino SIP Servlet’s network configuration consists of:

  • network interfaces — define the IP addresses, ports and transports that the RA entity will use for sending and receiving SIP traffic

  • network routes — specify which network interface to use for outgoing requests, when certain criteria are met.

Each RA entity must have at least one network interface. Routes are required if there is more than one network interface. Alarms are raised when attempting to activate an RA entity that has no network interfaces, or multiple interfaces and no routes.

Rhino SIP Servlet supports multihomed hosts as specified in JSR289 §14.2. Typically only one network interface is required, but multihoming can be useful in some situations. For example, Rhino SIP Servlet could proxy between clients on a public network, and some application servers on a hidden, private network.
