Hi

I cannot connect to https://meet.jit.si/ .
I cannot use my jit.si account, either.

The jit.si XMPP server is down after an electricity maintenance
operation at the University of Strasbourg.

meet.jit.si seems to be working fine. Could it have been a local issue for you?

OK.

Would that mean I should rather get an account at another provider and
tell my partner to also use another provider in case the jit.si xmpp
server is down? I find that a bit problematic. I understand that all is
free and people are probably working in there spare time on any issues,
but still.

Well, my life doesn't depend on the jit.si xmpp server, but you probably
understand that it's uncomfortable if one cannot reach the person one
wanted to reach (in particular if there is no other channel).

Yes, it's working now. Thanks.

Ralf

PS: I still like jitsi. Thank you for this software.

Thanks for your response Emil. I had searched for an annoucement or info but hadn't found anything. Next time a little more transparency should be hopefully possible, >without< asking first several times. I don't know how many users are using your jit.si server, but I guess quite a lot of people are using it, without any other XMPP accounts. I'm going to assume that downtimes are rare, aren't they? I hope this doesn't sound like a whine post, I'm thankful for all your work!

I agree with you Ralf. I'm doing the same now, I'm adding an additional XMPP account from an other provider. That's hopefully fool-proof for 99% of the time, because I can't imagine that both servers would go down the same time. Personally I have choosen the provider jabber.de, the test at xmpp.net was really impressive, I guess it's a nice choice for other people as well (not only Germans). But I'm still stuck on waiting for the people to contact me somewhere else (until they come online).

If you have another provider that you believe will be better at providing
what you need you should abaolutely get an account there.

I would advise you make sure they provide a jingle node relay.

Better yet you could consider running your own server.

As a side note, we are not particularly thrilled by what happened today and
are going to move the server elsewhere in an effort to avoid this issue in
the future.

That doesn't change anything about what I said above. Do get an account
elsewhere! XMPP is all about NOT having the entire world on the same
server. It's all about federation.

Thanks for your answer again Emil! Sorry if my text was too harsh. I agree with you, and also thanks a ton that you are trying to avoid this in the future. You are also right with XMPP, but there is the problem that not every server isn't good configured for Jitsis features (for example video bridge), that's also one reason why I was so frightened by the outtage, because I believe that your server is very probably the best one for Jitsi. You are also right that I could host my own one, but that's probably not very advisable with the huge amount of other servers on the internet. My test with jabber.de is still pending, I wasn't able to test if audio or video calls are working. If not, I guess it's still a great option for emergency chats.

Once again thanks for all your hard work, I'm sure hundreds of other people appreciate your work without even noticing it.

And a big sorry if my English sounds gruel!
