[jitsi-users] DHCP Provisioning


#1

​Hi,

yes, provisioning over DHCP is activated. On a wireshark sniff i can see
the messages on port 6767, but the dnsmasq does not answer.

I deactivate the firewall on the test system to ensure that the service
will get the request.

Is there a way to use the default port 67 ?

Regards,
Benedikt

I'm not aware of any changes, but I doubt anyone has used this in the last
few years.

You did enable provisioning over DHCP, right? Jitsi doesn't try
provisioning out of the box.

No this is not configurable. May I ask why you want to use DHCP instead of simply specifying the provisioning URI? I've never really seen a practical use case for the DHCP thing.

If you had 200 computers on your network you wouldn't want your users to
have to configure every one of those computers.

The more you automate the user experience the better.

Of course not, but instead of pre-configuring the option to use DHCP-provisioning you could just as well pre-configure a URL. You never mentioned your platform, but the Windows MSI even supports that as an installation parameter (https://jitsi.org/Documentation/MSIParameters). On other platforms you can manually pre-configure the prov-url in <jitsi-dir>/lib/jitsi-default-overrides.properties with whatever software deployment you're using.

Agreed that this is an option for Windows, but DHCP method works easily
across different OS platforms and is used for hardware phones (option 160
or 66 for polycom phones) and other softphones (cough... bria) as well.
