[jitsi-dev] using router and gateway


#1

Good Afternoon Developers,

I am using red hat linux and when I connect two machines together directly,
I can make calls using jitsi. But, when I put in a router and gateway, and
click call on jitsi the calls never get started. As soon as I get rid of
the gateway, all of the calls are activated. I looked for any errors when
that happens but there are none. Please advice. Thank you very much for
your help.

Thanks,

Leo

Good Evening Developers,

Below is some more information about my issue:

My ip address is 129.86.81.41
My gateway is 129.86.81.254 that doesnt let me make calls. If I use
129.86.81.255, this ip address lets me make calls.

Also, attached is a log file. Thank you very much for your help.

This is not much information... A "router" only routes subnets, but a "gateway" can mean damn near anything from a firewall to a NAT box, and more.

OK, assumming that your subnet mask is 255.255.255.0 or a /24, you are actually connecting to the boradcast address, so I am not sure how that is working...

So, what is this "gateway" exactly. What networks are involved? What are the IPs involved? And for security do something like "a.b.81.41" to obfuscate the IP, but leave it clear what is changed. Unless it is a 192.168.x.x or a 10.x.x.x, or a 169.x.x.x which all have special meaning, and are not routable over the Internet.
