Overview

The SBC sends ENUM queries and receive responses, using the Signaling Interface. The user can configure the Signaling Interface for sending ENUM queries and receive responses, using the packet interface port 988 to 1023. The packets from the Signaling Interface are prioritized over the packets from the Management Interface.

The default behavior of the SBC is to use the Management Interface for sending ENUM queries and receiving responses. The ports used for this purpose are in the range of 49152 to 65535.

Note

The addressContext and ipInterfaceGroup parameters are available when the type is set to ip. The ip interface uses ports 988 to 1023 to send and receive the ENUM queries.

The addressContextzone, sipSigPort, and ipInterfaceGroupName parameters are available when the type is set to signalingIp.

Configure the servers lwresdProfile type with the following options for ENUM queries:

  • mgmt: For management interface (default).
  • ip: For packet interface.
  • signalingIp: For signaling interface using sipSigPort IP address.

Note

IPv4 and IPv6 IP addresses can be configured for ENUM queries.

The addressContext adds the staticRoute parameter for the ENUM server. Static routes are configured between the ENUM server and the signaling interface in order to provide a gateway to the destination ENUM server.

The SBC uses the Management Interface as default for handling ENUM queries. There are two ways to handle ENUM queries:

Handling the ENUM Queries Using the Pkt Interface

To configure the SBC for sending the ENUM queries and receive responses using the Pkt Interface, perform the following steps:

  1. Checking Static Routes Currently Configured for an ENUM Server [optional]

    % show addressContext default staticRoute

    Sample Output for IPV4

    staticRoute 10.54.78.21 32 10.54.24.1 LIG001 LIF1_v4 {
    preference 100;
    }
    

    Sample Output for IPV6

    staticRoute fd00:10:6b50:44e0::15 60 fd00:10:6b50:4180::1 LIG001 LIF1_v4 {
    preference 100;
    }
  2. Adding a Static Route for an ENUM Server

    Note:

    It is not necessary to add a Static Route for an ENUM server, if it is already configured and shown in the output of the command "show addressContext <addressContext_Name> staticRoute".

    For example, if the ENUM server IP 10.128.254.116 is already added as a static route, then the output of the "show addressContext default staticRoute" command displays the following information:

    staticRoute 10.128.254.116 32 10.54.4.1 LIG001 LIF1_v4 {

        preference 120;

    }

    For IPV4

     % set addressContext default staticRoute 10.128.254.116 32 10.54.4.1 LIG001 LIF1_v4 preference 120
    commit

    For IPV6

    % set addressContext DEFAULT staticRoute fd00:10:6b50:44e0::15 60 fd00:10:6b50:4180::1 LIG001 LIF1_v4 preference 177
    commit
  3. Configuring ENUM Domain Name

    set global servers enumDomainName somevaliddomain.com forwardersData 0 eDNSType yes
    commit
    set global servers enumDomainName somevaliddomain.com forwardersData 0 eDNSBufferSize 517
    commit
  4. Setting lwresdProfile to ip

    % set global servers lwresdProfile DEFAULT type ip addressContext default ipInterfaceGroup LIG001 
    commit

    The following is an example of how to set the eDnsGlobalBufferSize parameter.

    set global servers lwresdProfile DEFAULT eDnsGlobalBufferSize 524
    commit

    The following is an example of how to set the eDnsMonitorInterval parameter.

    set global servers lwresdProfile DEFAULT eDnsMonitorInterval 66
    commit
  5. Viewing the lwresdProfile [optional]

    % show global servers lwresdProfile DEFAULT

    Sample Output

       description DEFAULT;
       enumDomainNameLabel DEFAULT_ZONE_LABEL;
       enableLwresdLog disable;
       type mgmt;
       eDnsGlobalBufferSize 524;
       eDnsMonitorInterval 66;

    Note:

    The parameters addressContext and ipInterfaceGroup appears in the results of the command "show global servers lwresdProfile DEFAULT", only if the parameter lwresdProfile type is set to ip.

  6. Adding an ACL Rule

    For IPV4

    % set addressContext default ipAccessControlList rule DNS1 precedence 9 ipInterfaceGroup LIG2 ipInterface LIF2_v4 sourceIpAddress 10.128.254.1 sourceAddressPrefixLength 24 state enabled
    commit

    For IPV6

    % set addressContext DEFAULT ipAccessControlList rule DNS1 precedence 11 ipInterfaceGroup LIG001 ipInterface LIF1_v4 sourceIpAddress fd00:10:6b50:4020::99 sourceAddressPrefixLength 60 state enabled
    commit

Handling the ENUM Queries Using the Management Interface

To configure the SBC for sending the ENUM queries and receive responses using the Management Interface, perform the following steps:

  1. Deleting the Existing Static Routes for an ENUM Server

    Note:

    The SBC selects the interface based on priority of the static route configured for interface. To enable the Management Interface for handling ENUM queries, delete static routes configured for the ENUM server.


    For IPV4

    % delete addressContext default staticRoute 10.128.254.116 32 10.54.4.1 LIG001 LIF1_v4
    commit

    For IPV6

    % delete addressContext default staticRoute fd00:10:6b50:44e0::15 60 fd00:10:6b50:4180::1 LIG001 LIF1_v4
    commit
  2. Configuring ENUM Domain Name

    set global servers enumDomainName somevaliddomain.com forwardersData 0 eDNSType yes
    commit
    set global servers enumDomainName somevaliddomain.com forwardersData 0 eDNSBufferSize 517
    commit
  3. Setting lwresdProfile to mgmt

    % set global servers lwresdProfile DEFAULT type mgmt
    commit

    The following is an example of how to set the eDnsGlobalBufferSize parameter.

    set global servers lwresdProfile DEFAULT eDnsGlobalBufferSize 524
    commit

    The following is an example of how to set the eDnsMonitorInterval parameter.

    set global servers lwresdProfile DEFAULT eDnsMonitorInterval 66
    commit
  4. Viewing the Settings of lwresdProfile [optional]

    % show global servers lwresdProfile DEFAULT

    Sample output:

    description                       DEFAULT;
    ENUMDomainNameLabel               DEFAULT_ZONE_LABEL;
    enableLwresdLog                   disable;
    type                              mgmt;
    
  5. Adding an ACL Rule

    For IPV4

    % set addressContext default ipAccessControlList rule DNS1 precedence 9 sourceIpAddress 10.54.92.180 sourceAddressPrefixLength 24 state enabled
    commit

    For IPV6

    % set addressContext DEFAULT ipAccessControlList rule DNS1 precedence 11 sourceIpAddress fd00:10:6b50:4020::99 sourceAddressPrefixLength 60 state enabled
    commit

    commit

ENUM ARS Profile

The Address Reachability Service (ARS) profile applies to ENUM servers when attached to the LWRESD profile, and provides device failover to the secondary or backup server. The servers lwresdProfile configuration adds the enumArsProfileId parameter.

The ENUM ARS profile is applicable to the following interfaces to handle the ENUM queries:

  • mgmt: For management interface (default).
  • ip: For packet interface.
  • signalingIp: For signaling interface using sipSigPort IP address.

Configure the enumArsProfileId in the enumArsProfile parameter, which is added to the global servers configuration and determines the behavior of the blacklisting and whitelisting parameters.

To check if an ENUM server is reachable or not, you must whitelist or blacklist the ENUM ARS Profile.

The following is an example of how to attach the enumArsProfileId to the lwresdProfile.

Example
set global servers lwresdProfile DEFAULT enumArsProfileId Test

The following is an example of how to configure the enumArsProfile for black listing.

Example
set global servers enumArsProfile Test blackListing numberOfFailures 5 duration 60

The following is an example of how to configure the enumArsProfile for white listing.

Example
set global servers enumArsProfile Test whiteListing numberOfResponses 1 pingInterval 5 highWaterMarkTimer 86000
