[jitsi-users] Fwd: Re: jit.si


#1

The reason it doesn't open as a URL is because it's *NOT* a website!
It's a XMPP server! Use your Jitsi client to attach to the server and
you're good to go! I have several new subscribers now and it's working
well. Again the site chat.jpunix.net is *NOT* a website.

Hello Crypto and many thanks for your message!
As now jit.si is AGAIN DOWN (being also down on one evening during the week!!),
I have decided to try the server, which you sent me. Unfortunately, the URL
chat.jpunix.net doesn't open at all, I have also tried to open just jpunix.net, which
gave some website for weather forecast and nothing about chat...
So, if there is really no server with a higher uptime, which also has this jingle bells
installed, which enable audio calls, I'm gonna have to drop Jitsi !!
I have been nice 4 weeks of illusion, that there is a cool replacement for Skype !!!

Thanks...

Dear Jitsi users,

as jit.si is now for the second day DOWN and I am unable to use the jitsi services, kindly
advise about alternative XMPP services. I came to know, that there is an additional requirement:
the server needs to support jingle.
I signed up to at least 5-6 servers, like duck duck go, talkr.im, jabber.de, but while adding the
account, I am getting a certificate warning, that jitsi cannot guarantee the server's authenticity.
Kindly advise about that warning and whether it is a security concern, if using ZRTP.

Many many thanks in advance!

chat.jpunix.net is also available. It's running Prosody. Please be
advised that the certificate is self-signed and is used only to provide
a secure connection.

Hello Crypto, thanks for your willingness to offer us an alternative XMPP service! :slight_smile: But I have a few questions just because I'm curious: How long do you want to run your service? Are you going to open a website or some kind of forum in case there are problems or announcements from yourself? Are you completely fine with file transfers or long audio / video calls (>bandwidth<)? And why the name jpunix? Again, I'm only curious, don't worry! :smiley: Thanks!

1. I plan on running the service for as long as possible. The
intention is for it to be a permanent fixture. I have several
contingency plans in the event that I can't host it at it's current
location.

2. I don't have any plans for opening an website or forum. It's a
service just like SMTP, POP3, or IMAP. I wouldn't open a website for
IMAP or the others because it's just not needed. As far as notifying
me about issues, you are welcome to email me.

3. I'm fine with long audio/video calls as well as file transfers.
That's what the service is for.

4. JPUnix has been my domain name for over a decade. It was created
back in the days when I was a UNIX consultant. You can always "Google"
it for more information. You will see that I've had my hand in a fair
number of projects including some "creations" of my own (i.e. I
conceptualized and modeled the very first "middleman" remailer)

Those seem to be private messages sent to you and they don't seem to be
related to Jitsi so there is no reason for them to be forwarded here.

I'd encourage you to open a public forum or mailing list related to your
service and have these discussions there.

My apologies. My thinking was that it was Jitsi related because the
original message was referring to the fact that jit.si was down. I won't
continue the thread. Again my apologies.
