[jitsi-users] Will BOSH be supported?


#1

Hello all,

Is BOSH support on the roadmap?

It doesn't appear that it is present on the website roadmap list.

This would be great.

Thanks,

Matt

Hey Matt,

Hello all,

Is BOSH support on the roadmap?

No, not currently.

It doesn't appear that it is present on the website roadmap list.

This would be great.

Why?

The main reason is so that packets can get through layer 7 inspection
proxies.

Does this make sense? My understanding is BOSH is XMPP encapsulated within
HTTP.

Thanks,

Matt Brown

Well ... what's the advantage to using a SOCKS proxy or simply running your
server on 443?

And what is preventing your layer 7 inspector from scanning for
xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/httpbind' and blocking all those requests?

I do see a point though, as it is explained in XEP-0124 and XEP-0206 (but
not for firewall traversing):
"[...] useful in situations where a device or client is unable to maintain a
long-lived TCP connection to an XMPP server."
and
"[...] efficiently using multiple synchronous HTTP request/response pairs
without requiring the use of frequent polling or chunked responses."
