[jitsi-users] Question about file transfer


#1

Hi,

how does jitsi's file transfer work?

I checked the traffic with wireshark (packet sniffer) and I couldn't
understand how the file was being transfered. I saw traffic UDP only (i
was doing an audio call).

While checking the sniffer i noticed some traffic going through the
internet.. after changing the DNS resolver in the advanced options this
type of traffic stopped and the quality of the communication improved.

I noticed file transfers with jitsi in our behave a bit strangely and
are a very slow, would like to know how to improve them.

Thanks for your time

Hey Federico,

What protocol did you experience this with? Can we see your logs?

XMPP.

I didn't save the logs. How does the file transfer work? Is it UDP or
TCP? Is it P2P or not? Do we have to tweak something on the server to
improve it?

Thanks
