Since days im now trying to get the jitsi server working. No luck at all…everytime the same problem thats why i want to ask the community about this.
Here is my problem:
Jitsi server running - ports opened in ufw
Ppl can connect to the conference room but every user gets a message that he/she is is allone in the room. No group conference possible. They just see themselfs.
After rebooting the server the connected clients are inserted in the room (if the software was still running and the script tried to reconnect itself).
But if im going out of the conference…the same again…only user…no group at all.
I hope somebody has had the same issue and can help me getting this great serverproject running.
I would recommend you to only follow the quick guide, it is the most tested guide.
since you are behind a NAT you need to do the advanced configuration
Personally I started just like you by having my jitsi installation on a server behind a NAT router.
But in order to address some bottlenecks, actually caused by my router, I moved my jitsi installation to be the router on my network, and I live happily after that. A modern machine running debian/ubuntu with two network cards can process packets much faster compared to having a small office router. Not only did it make my jitsi installation configuration easier, it also allowed me to fully use my internet connection.
