[jitsi-users] jit.si and other XMPP servers interconnected?


#1

Hi all,

I have been looking at Jitsi as a replacement for my current use of Skype, and I ran into the following:

I created two accounts on jit.si to see how things worked. These two accounts (on different computers) connected fine.
However, when I tried to add a contact from a different xmpp server (I used accounts at jabber.org and jabber.no-sense.net), I noticed that the authorization request from both jabber.org and no-sense.net never reached the client on the jit.si server, and neither did the authorization request from the client on the jit.si server.
The authorization requests from jabber and no-sense.net did reach each others clients.

So, my questions are:
- Is the XMPP server at jit.si interconnected with the XMPP network?
- if not: why not?
- Do both parties need to have a jit.si account to use the video bridge on jit.si?

I tried to find the answers in the mailing list archives but didn't really find anything.

cheers

Hey Maurits,

Hi all,

However, when I tried to add a contact from a different xmpp server (I used accounts at jabber.org and jabber.no-sense.net), I noticed that the authorization request from both jabber.org and no-sense.net never reached the client on the jit.si server, and neither did the authorization request from the client on the jit.si server.
The authorization requests from jabber and no-sense.net did reach each others clients.

So, my questions are:
- Is the XMPP server at jit.si interconnected with the XMPP network?

All SRV records are properly set. Personally I chat with a number of
non-jit.si accounts every day. Not sure what might have gone wrong in
this case.

- if not: why not?

Not sure, and personally don't have the time to investigate right now.
We'll look at this later if the problem persists.

- Do both parties need to have a jit.si account to use the video bridge on jit.si?

No. Only the organiser.

Hope this helps.

For the record, I'm able to chat with my wife on a non-jit.si account as
well, so federation is setup to work on non-jit.si domains.

I checked the logs of Jitsi, and it tells me the following (edited out account name):

15:20:32.104 SEVERE: [34] impl.protocol.jabber.InfoRetreiver.retrieveDetails().299 Cannot load details for contact [account]@jabber.no-sense.net : Timeout getting VCard information

anything that might cause that? Perhaps firewall settings?

cheers
