SIP redirect server configuration

A SIP redirect server accepts SIP requests, maps the addresses in the request into zero or more new addresses and returns those addresses to the client. The redirect server does not initiate SIP requests or accept calls. As shown below, SIP clients send INVITE requests to the redirect server, which then looks up the destination address. The redirect server returns the destination address to the client. The client uses this address to send the INVITE request directly to the destination SIP client.
