JVB, websockets and SSL

I’ve started a totally fresh install of Jitsi-meet (using the latest guide here: https://jitsi.github.io/handbook/docs/devops-guide/devops-guide-quickstart ) , and on a separate server, JVB2 (following this https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-videobridge/blob/master/doc/web-sockets.md).
I’ve been struggling all day with websocket connection errors on the separate JVB machine, but now seem to have solved it by:
1 - setting the videobridge jvb.conf to include this:

videobridge {
    http-servers {
        public {
            tls-port = 443

and 2 - creating a java-compatible keystore using certbot, openssl and keytool, and saving it in the above specified location ssl.store.

Now Websocket can connect successfully to the separate JVB machine. Yay.

So now…
a) Is this really the way I’m supposed to do it? If this is what’s needed on a dedicated JVB instance, then why is the default set to non-ssl port 9090?

b) Could someone please update the documentation to be clearer about this? It seems pretty important that the default setup will not work for a dedicated JVB machine, and you have to setup a DNS/SSL/keystore configuration to make it work…

c) how is this supposed to work with auto-scaling? If I have to generate a unique keystore/ssl config for each JVB, how can I dynamically add-remove machines conveniently?

Thanks for any help or ideas in this area.

I working on moving to websockets and have run into the same concerns you have. What I have done is set a pre-hook script with certbot that creates an A-record in route53 based on the hostname and then a post-hook script that converts the cert into a keystore. I haven’t fully tested it but the theory is that auto-scaled servers will create a new fqdn and then generate a cert for that jvb and apply it. I am not entirely sure this is how it should be done but documentation on this is pretty scarce.

@David_Robert_Hoare hello you find solution for this? I no see any information anywhere

Hi Ryan - sadly no. It worked for the one machine, but I didn’t end up getting it working in any autoscaling setup. Sorry I don’t have better news. This seems a pretty big missing ingredient in the docs for any larger setup…

Thank you for your respond David. I look everywhere no information. How to do autoscale with this? No information
