I downloaded the source and am running jitsi-meet on 127.0.0.1:8080, and I’m assuming that is only the meet application and a basic web server (when looking at the architecture diagram: Architecture | Jitsi Meet).
I’m assuming it is using a remote prosody server, but I’m wondering if that’s hard-coded and/or what ports it is running over. I assumed port 5280 (based on Self-Hosting Guide - Manual installation | Jitsi Meet), but looking at tcpdump for that port didn’t show any outbound traffic.
If the development instance is running xmpp/jicofo/vb locally, that’s fine, I just didn’t think that’s how it would work.
The make dev just runs a proxy server locally so you can use the local UI code and everything else is used from a remote server. It works by default with a server we have setup with limited capabilities, but you can always setup and use yours:
If my project actually gets to a point where I want to go live with a new frontend app, but I don’t want to deal with hosting any of the backend components, I’m assuming I can just point the app to an 8x8 Proxy Server (paid solution)? Or am I oversimplifying that?
