[jitsi-users] Zeroconf


#1

What is the situation with Zeroconf? I found Jitsi because I was looking for SIP clients that auto-discover either SIP servers or SIP user agents using Zeroconf. But it looks as though it was removed in a November release. So what is the situation and the plan?

Hi Craig,

Indeed, we've disabled the Zeroconf protocol, because of the lack of support. You could still enable it manually (in the build.xml and felix.client.run.properties) if you want to try it out.

We're now planning on revisiting the current implementation and adding support for it more as a contact source (i.e. search everyone else on your network who’s reachable by VoIP). This is actually one of Jitsi's Google Summer of Code project ideas for this year, so hopefully if we're accepted and if students are interested in this project we could come up with something by the end of the summer.

Cheers,
Yana

Yes, I can't see much out there. But, for example I'm using Avahi to advertise an Asterisk _sip._udp service on the local network. I was hoping there might be a client out there that can spot that, but none seems to.

I couldn't figure out how to do that (not a Java programmer).

Sounds good. I found Blink which can do that.
