h323-gateway voip interface

I've read Cisco IOS command reference, but I'm still not sure about the purpose of "h323-gateway voip interface" command.

Moreover, I was trying to understand the difference between "h323-gateway voip interface" and "h323-gateway voip bind srcaddr".

Here's my config on the gateway router:

interface Fa0/0

  ip address 192.168.1.254 255.255.255.0
  h323-gateway voip bind srcaddr 192.168.1.254

interface loopback0

  ip address 10.1.1.254 255.255.255.0

  h323-gateway voip interface
  h323-gateway voip id GK ipaddr 10.2.2.254
  h323-gateway voip h323-id CUCME
  h323-gateway voip tech-prefix 408


From my understanding, the "h323-gateway voip interface" command should dictate the source address that being used to communicate with gatekeeper.  i.e. it should be 10.1.1.254 (loopback0)

However, when I do a "show gatekeeper endpoint" command on the gatekeeper router, it's showing the RAS address as 192.168.1.1.254 (Fa0/0).  How can I make the gateway router to use loopback0 communicate with GK, while using the Fa0/0 interface communicate with other H323 peers (such as CUCM)?

GK#show gatekeeper endpoint
                    GATEKEEPER ENDPOINT REGISTRATION
                    ================================
CallSignalAddr  Port  RASSignalAddr   Port  Zone Name         Type    Flags
--------------- ----- --------------- ----- ---------         ----    -----
192.168.1.254  1720  192.168.1.254  60745 GK                VOIP-GW
    H323-ID: CUCME
    Voice Capacity Max.=  Avail.=  Current.= 0
Total number of active registrations = 1

P.S.

  • IOS image being used is c3825-adventerprisek9_ivs-mz.124-24.T4.bin
  • I also tried making the gateway router a "H323-GW" instead of "VOIP-GW" by adding "allow h323 to h323" command.  Same behavior.

Thanks!

I cant remove it, since this router acting as cme is connected with othwe cme too.

You don't need this cmd if call is coming from another CME. You don't registered this as h323 GW to CME.

Just to add, I always thought the "h323-gateway voip bind srcaddr X.X.X.X" commend was to tell the destination where the IP packets came from particular if you have loopback address otherwise you can have one way transmission , loss of packets etc
