TCP for video connections on videbridge2

Hi,

I’m testing this with a seperate jvb server and udp streams work perfectly using videobridge2.

According to the documentation the videobridge should listen to port 443 or 4443 as a fallback for tcp connections in case udp is not available. If udp port 10000 is blocked on the test machine there won’t be a video/audio stream. If I look with netstat what ports are listening there is nothing on ports 443 or 4443.

Installed and configured authport and tried to add
org.jitsi.videobridge.TCP_HARVESTER_PORT=443
org.jitsi.videobridge.TCP_MAPPED_PORT=443
But doesn’t seem to do anything.

Setting up a TURN server seemed to connect the tcp connections if I remember correctly as tested some time ago. I’m worried however having to scale not only the jvb servers but TURN as well.

Did you read the tcp documentation for jvb ? here are the relevant points:


# Warning
ICE/TCP is not the recommended way to deal with clients connecting
from networks where UDP traffic is restricted
(...)
### *org.jitsi.videobridge.DISABLE_TCP_HARVESTER*
Type: boolean

Default: true

Thought I read it or at least searched trough it, but guess not well enough.

Thank you very much!
