Calls takes long to get stablished on a jitsi set up using docker Docker in a LAN environment (intranet) with no internet

Hi all,

I achieved to have jitsi running using docker containers following the quickstart guide.. I have everything properly set up and running with certificates that I manually copied in the config folder.

My .env file looks like this:

# shellcheck disable=SC2034

# Set these to strong passwords to avoid intruders from impersonating a service account

# DO NOT reuse passwords

Everything works fine, but the only problem is it takes around 30 seconds to establish every call. Once it is established it works fine. Perhaps jitsi is looking for something in the internet and since it has no internet connection it gets stuck there for a while?

Any clues? I can provide more logs if needed.

Thanks,

Sergio

What do you mean by getting the call established? Can you please detail the steps you are following and where you are observing the delay?

Cheers,

Sorry for the “established” confusion. I mean that once a video/audio meeting starts, I can see the other user instantly joining. However, I can’t see/listen the other(s) person(s) till it passes some time (like 30 secs usually). Once the time passes, the call starts perfectly.

Can you reproduce this in meet.jit.si ?

Check for errors in the js console of the browser. Are websockets to the bridge working correctly?
