"Using Session Initiation Protocol with IBM Lotus Sametime" introduces you to SIP and to SIMPLE, two instant messaging protocols. You can use SIP to connect two or more Lotus Sametime communities using the Sametime SIP Gateway and Connector. This white paper explains how to configure both. In addition, it shows how to secure your SIP connections with the IBM Global Security Kit (GSKit). The GSKit uses transport layer security (TLS) 1.0 to encrypt your connections. This paper also covers more advanced SIP configurations, including multi-server environments, multiple external communities, clustered environments, failover, and more. Lastly, it helps you troubleshoot common issues with Lotus Sametime SIP.
