[jitsi-users] Strange issue I observed


#1

Hi Folks,
I am newto jitsi and recently i managed to integrate it with openfire
3.8.1. However what I noticed when two parties chatting is only one user
can share his desktop and if othere tries to do the same a blank black
screen gets displayed. Any clue why?

Also, the othere query I had was since openfire deployed for my
organisation do we still need internet for every user to share the desktop?
Though currently I have added srv record on internet and users are able to
access or chat but what if the internet is not available for certain users?
Will it not work? Will it always query to internet srv record and is
ddesktop sharing happened between peer to peer or it routed through
internet based server like teamviewer?

Please help.

I'm noticing the same issue and am hoping for an answer. In my case,
it's always the same side who can't share their desktop. I assume it has
something to do with the way the party who can't share is connecting to
the Internet.

It depends: try resolving your servers dns name from inside your
network. if it delivers a private ip (10.x.x.x|192.168.x.x|�) then
clients will not need to connect to the rest of the internet to talk
to the server (and chat, as chat is allways routed over the server).
Before any kind of jingle connection (usaly voice/video) is used it
needs to be established, jitsi uses ICE (interactive connection
establishment) for that which usualy tries to connect to the private
ips so yes: they will use the LAN for desktop sharing.

So per you lets say I built openfire server for example.com. Added srv
records on my private dns servers and later I downloaded jitsi, given
internal dns servers so users can login to xmpp using JID in jitsi.

In the above scenario desktop sharing, voice and video chat completely be
routed through openfire server or will it happen between user to user?

Again if this is the case rather than diverting a traffic over the
internet, traffic over intranet would be faster...

Please correct me if I am wrong.

It depends. If ICE can establish a direct connection between the two users,
then it uses that connection. If not, the traffic will be routed through a
relay.

Again if this is the case rather than diverting a traffic over the

internet,

traffic over intranet would be faster...

You'd need to have a relay on your intranet (e.g. OpenFire with Jingle
Nodes).

Please correct me if I am wrong.

Again: i do not think that this is needed as ICE should find a local
connection between those two
