Subject: google voice ICE fail with PSTN or other phone numbers

I have installed Jitsi for a friend and added a 'google talk' account. We
are trying to get it so that the application can replace gmail's talk
application.

There seem to be two subapplications within gmail:

a. chat that includes voice and video that is used for gmail users in
the list of contacts

b. calling a phone number

I don't know how these are internally connected but they are somehow since
one can have a phone number connected to the gmail account which rings
within gmail.

What works:

Jitsi shows all google contacts and allow voice communication when doing
something similar to a. above.

Can call and receive calls directly to and from gmail accounts with no phone
number involved.

What does not work:

Anything involving a phone number.

For example if I dial the gmail-related phone number that rings within the
regular gmail application (google voice is set to have it ring in gmail)

- it does rings in Jitsi and displays a pop-up:

"+XXXXXXX@google.voice.com/srvenc-PK............is calling...
<mailto:+XXXXXXX@google.voice.com/srvenc-PK............is%20calling...> " it
has a green and red phone handle

But after the green phone icon is clicked another pop-up comes that is
trying to make the connection and it says:

"Error: Could not establish connection (ICE failed)" and then hangs up.

Note that when calling to jitsi from another gmail account on a neaby
computer (using the associated phone number) even after jitsi rang, gave the
error message above and hung up the calling computer kept ringing - as if on
its end a connection was never established and it was still waiting for
someone to pick up.

This occurs whether the phone number is dialed from another gmail account or
from an outside PSTN phone.

Outbound dialing from Jitsi to a phone number even it is a google phone
number does not work either.

Any ideas?

If im reading that right it sounds as if there is no resolution and no
intention of finding one.

That's a bummer.

Take a look at this post
http://lists.jitsi.org/pipermail/users/2013-June/004172.html a follow up to
the post on link. A fellow Pablo reports that it woks via Simonics.
I am not sure what that is. Simonics website claims to somehow transform
google talk to sip.

Is that a solution? Any suggestions for me?

If they are able to do that, maybe jitsi can use whatever trick they are
using within jitsi.

Hey Joe,

If they are able to do that, maybe jitsi can use whatever trick they are
using within jitsi.

If it only were a single trick. Right now for example, I am able to make Google Voice calls with Jitsi and have no issues. Others aren't. It's exactly these inconsistencies that we aren't able to track and debug, because if we do, they'll probably stop working any way in not so long when google shut down Jingle support entirely (as far as I can tell Google Voice is the only component of Google that still uses it).

Indeed, the Simonics option works for making and receiving calls using
Google Voice. Prior to using the Simonics solution I enrolled in Google
Voice. Here is a link: http://nerdvittles.com/?p=832

Thank you Carla,
But I think everyone missed that I do NOT want to use Google anything due to their blatant privacy violations turning over people's info to the NSA.
I just want to use AN e-mail address and start a basic jitsi account.
