[jitsi-users] Simultaneous login over multiple devices


#1

I have Jitsi installed on my desktop and Gibberbot on my phone and was
wondering if the gmail and/or Jabber protocols can cope with my being
logged in on both simultaneously?

For example even if I'm at home, depending on what I'm doing/which
room I'm in, it can be convenient to be able to receive notification
of messages and reply on my phone using Gibberbot but if I'm at my
desk, use Jitsi on the PC instead, which also has the advantage of
letting me make/receive voice calls (although I'm not sure if this
still works with gmail accounts).

It's obviously inconvenient to have to keep signing out of one and
into the other, so for chat I'd probably prefer to use the phone if I
had to choose, as if I'm not at my desk I'm unlikely to notice an
incoming message but I would prefer not to have to choose if possible.

Hi,

I am using the same setup. On generic XMPP server, you can connect from
multiple clients simultaneously. You will usually get notification on
the client with the highest priority. I have set my desktop Jitsi
priority to 30, on my mobile client it is 5, so I get notification on my
desktop, if I am there, on mobile otherwise. See e.g.
http://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Jabber_Resources for details.
With google talk, this does not work, I believe the priorities are
ignored. You will usually get notification on all connected devices or
on a device where you have shortest idle time, based on some timeout.
After this timeout, the message will arrive to all connected clients.
YMMV. See e.g.
http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/chat/TjBebqXIkls for
interesting discussion on this topic.

Hope this helps.

Tomas

Hi Tomas

Thanks, that helps a lot. Even if Google ignores the priority and I
get notification on all devices that's OK for me. XMPP sounds more
configurable though, so I'll look to move myself and my friends to use
that instead perhaps.

Regards

Derek

FYI, we are currently working on making resource priority dependent on the presence status (so that an online account, can always be more prioritary than an away one).

Cheers,
