I'm using Jitsi mainly to do desktop sharing, and I seem to have a
problem on my side - I think… I’m just not capable of
identifying it clearly so far.
The situation is this: I'm using Jitsi 1.0 from an OpenSUSE Linux
11.4 computer, the other party is using 1.0 also but from a
Windows computer (I don’t know what version, I forgot to ask). We
both have accounts at Ippi, and we’re both using a version of
Jitsi downloaded a few days ago.
What happens is this: * I can't call him, but he can call me. * At first he can't seem to show me his desktop. * I try to show him mine, he doesn't receive it, I stop, he shares
his, this time I receive it.
* I can't send him a text message either. He never receives it. So far I've been able to work around the problem like that (if I
can see his desktop then I can guide him), but this isn’t very
My local network is set up like this: External router (with firewall) => Local Slackware 13.1 server
with 2 network card (external / internal) and its own firewall
=> Internal router (without firewall) => Workstations (with
their own firewalls).
I'm wondering if some ports need to be forwarded from the external
router to the server and from there to the workstations (or at
least one of them) - I know how to do it, assuming this is the
problem, I’ve done it for VLC to access the ADSL TV from my ISP…
I just don’t know which ports are concerned!
Or if I'm completely wrong with this and this isn't a firewall
problem, does anyone has an idea as to what’s going on?
Thanks. Seb. PS: When I try between my main workstation, and my laptop
connected to a VPN (so it’s technically outside my local network)
everything works perfectly fine both ways… The laptop’s using
OpenSUSE 12.1 and also Jitsi 1.0.
