[jitsi-users] IAX?


#1

(sorry for previous registration)

Dear Users, a simple question for which I could not find a clear answer.

I am trying to use Jitsi as a skype replacement with collegues - from behind NATs.
What is the proper identity/protocol to be used? In particular I am having difficulties:

- AIM login does not go through (invalid password even though it is the correct one)

- After registering a SIP identity (onsip.com <http://onsip.com/>), I can get online but no calls can be answered, only chat works. (this is consistent with SIP not working behind NAT).

So - maybe IAX does work in jitsi? What is the proper identity or way to register for it?

Thanks in advance for any help.

(And of course let me express my admiration for the great piece of software that Jitsi is.)

No - Jigasi is a Jitsi gateway for SIP, but there is no Jigaiax... :slight_smile:

Anyway "IAX" stands for Inter-Asterisk Exchange, and is very seldom encountered except when Asterisk is at both ends of the link.

There were some VOIP clients doing the IAX protocol, and had some other features.

SIP can certainly work behind NAT - so long as the remote server knows to
expect clients behind NAT, and therefore use the source IP of the packets it
sees, and not the SIP header IP contained inside the packets.

I would suggest that it is so common for SIP clients to be behind NAT that
expecting this is the default configuration for a SIP server.
