The title more or less says it. I have the
turn STUN server running and am experiencing strange network traffic. Not understanding STUN, I was thinking perhaps that server is being used by others than my users. So:
Do I need STUN at all when I have disabled p2p / peer-to-peer connections anyway?
turn STUN server is running, can I limit its use to users of my Jitsi Meet server?
I suppose if I do not need it (
reply==false) the second question becomes less relevant. However, if someone could answer that it would also be good for completeness and when I need it in the future.
If you are talking about
coturn, it is not only a
STUN server, it is also a
TURNS server which is used when a client cannot connect to
OK, thanks for the clarification. So, does that mean I need it? Can I find out if anyone used it in the past days for my JM meetings?
Also, if you have a hint for question 2 please let me know.
The TURNS service has a secret key which is shared only with your meeting participants.
OK, thanks. Can you confirm that I do not need the STUN functionality when disabling P2P? That was not 100% clear to me.
coturn be configured to disable STUN and just leave the TURNS functionality? Perhaps even block the STUN incoming TCP/UDP port if TURNS uses a different one?
Which ports do they use by default?
You can stop your
STUN service but
JVB needs a
STUN service which is
meet-jit-si-turnrelay.jitsi.net by default. So stopping your own
coturn doesn’t affect your system.
Thanks. What is STUN used for without P2P please?
Do STUN and TURNS functionalities use the same port
