Set up Heartbeat on Primary Brekeke SIP Server

Note:
From version 3.9.1.0 of Brekeke SIP Server Advanced Editon, the mirroring function of the Advanced Editon has been further improved. The basic heartbeat and switchover functions are integrated with the mirroring function and thus can be configured all at the [Mirroring] page. There is no need to make changes at the [Hearbeat] settings if you are using a standard heartbeat setup.
