[OpenSIPS-Users] Use of socket_info and local_contact columns in the active_watcher table

Hi Surya,

The 2 columns contains the SIP and the IP coordinates of OpenSIPS (as 
end point in the subscription dialog) - the local_contact is the SIP 
contact used by OpenSIPS in the dialog, while the local_socket is the IP 
address used by OpenSIPS in the dialog.

Now, on the multi presence-servers - how do you disperse the SIP traffic 
across these servers ?
