I would like to simulate SCTP mutihoming with mobicents and simulator.I joined the slide to be more accurate.
the mobicents initiate the connection sctp, and the simulator is server.
first i configured the sctp server on mobicents like this => sctp server create TestServer ipA,ip B 2905
in the documentation it explaines that " if the primary ip address becomes unavailable it will automatically fall back to secondary address."
if the primary IP A will not be available, ( for the server side it seems that mobicents server canno't bind it and then switch ?).
Then i configure the association client like this
sctp association create asspls041 CLIENT IPC 2905 IPA,IPB 2905
AFAIK the association will start with IPA and IPC but if there is a problem, the mobicents server will switch to IPB but will try to IPC and not IPD (IPA=>IPC, IPB=>IPC)
I would like to know if i need to create two associations ?
to do thi IPA => IPC and then IPB=>IPD.
I would like to know also => how to configure a sctp association client with an IP which mobicents doesn't bind on it at the start ? or shall I defines all 0.0.0.0 when i started the jboss ?
and is iptable the best tools to simulate a problem and to see if the multihoming is well configured ?
Thanks in advance.
