Sadly this world isn't perfect, and I've been tested it some time ago.
There are theoretically four possibilities:
1) neither rings
2) the phone rings where on the machine that registered the first time
3) the phone rings where on the machine that registered the second time
4) both phone rings
Unfortunately, the last option I never saw.
All other three (1,2,3) did occur, but in an unpredictable way.
Delays (network) were not responsible, as I used local machine to login to.

Ideally it should ring on both machines and whoever answers first gets

When I call from outside - the call ends up at the wrong machine.
Everything in Jitsi is configured out of the box - I didn't change any
As it looks to me, it is possible to answer a text chat to the machine
the incoming message originates. But when I decide to "upgrade" the
text conversation to a audio/video call then the wrong machine rings.
What to do in such a case (appart from ssh'ing and shuting down Jitsi
at the wrong end)? Is there a logic behind where a call goes to when
more than one client is online with the same Jabber account? Maybe one
can even control which one should ring?
Thank you for help
