The primary protocol we use for telephony is SIP (wp>Session Initiation Protocol).
Please use the following credentials to register:
|Caller name:||your real name|
|Username:||your UID - 900|
|Protocol:||TLS or TCP|
Your client should automatically find the server to which to connect to by using DNS SRV and NAPTR records. Make sure that this feature is enabled. When you have trouble with your client, you may optionally use sip.ipfire.org as a SIP proxy.
You may register multiple clients at a time, which will all ring when you are called.
For secure communication with the server, you can use SIP over TLS (TCP/5061) to encrypt the SIP messages and SRTP for encrypting the RTP streams. Only very few clients support these features at this time.
Instant messaging can be done via Jabber (wp>XMPP). Use the following login credentials:
|Username:||first name.last firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Password:||your account password|
The server requires your client to use SSL/TLS and is of course connected to the global Jabber network.
Since Feb 23rd, 2014, the Jabber server requires SSL/TLS connections for server-to-server connections as well.
Conferences are available at conference.ipfire.org.
