I recently gave a try to Jitsi because I wanted to be able to do
video-conferencing with my ejabberd server. I previously used Empathy,
but it wasn't that stable, and it does not run under Windows (to my
knowledge...) Jitsi does the job, and it's just great (though I can
not figure how to raise font size) ! But the location of my office
changed few weeks ago, and I work now in a more restrictive
environment. There I cannot establish any audio or video connection
with my contacts - these work perfectly from my home.
So I have a firewall issue. I'm quite a rookie in this world : I don't
know the principles behind audio- or video-conferencing over XMPP. I
thought everything passed through the server, but it's obviously not
the case. What should I do, or what should I ask the firewall's admin
to allow, to make conferencing work ? I think that putting the
ejabberd server and all of my contacts in a VPN should do the job, but
this seems rather complicated...
Thanks in advance, best regards,
