[jitsi-users] Jitsi and the Cisco Call Manager


#1

Hello,
we would like to use the Jitsi Desktop with Opensuse Linux.

We´re testing Jitsi Desktop and have some problems with video calls and desktop sharing between Cisco Jabber and Jitsi over SIP.

Another calls are working good and call forwarding also works.
Very well is the integration of the global address book.

But we have functions that we would still need.
For example the hunt- and pickup- group funktion.

Our first rest would is, can you provide a rpm package for Opensuse Linux?
And can you develop the funktions we would like need?

Thank you for your efforts.

Kind regards

Jürgen Schmidt

we would like to use the Jitsi Desktop with Opensuse Linux.

We´re testing Jitsi Desktop and have some problems with video calls and
desktop sharing between Cisco Jabber and Jitsi over SIP.

First of all, could you please tell which version you tried?

Jabber: There's a known issue in Cisco's server that prevents the roster (the buddy list) from working properly. Jitsi has a workaround in place since build 2.11.5581.

Video calls: H.264 was broken in most 2.11 builds, but should be working again since 2.11.5583. However, I don't think video ever worked with Cisco devices. Since I don't have access to such devices/appliances, it's very hard to debug. At the very least, I'd need logs [1].

Another calls are working good and call forwarding also works.
Very well is the integration of the global address book.

But we have functions that we would still need.
For example the hunt- and pickup- group funktion.

Call pickup can often be done with a special phone number, e.g. *8. If you use provisioning, you could also use the BLF plugin [2] to monitor an extension and simplify pickup.

Our first rest would is, can you provide a rpm package for Opensuse Linux?

We have an rpm package on our download server [3], however I understand there's a problem with it on Suse (because they use non-standard package names) [4].

And can you develop the funktions we would like need?

Everything that goes beyond fixing bugs: no. However, Lindeas [5] might be able to help you out with consulting and custom development services.

Thank you for your efforts.

Kind regards
