IPFire People

people.ipfire.org is the name of the central communication server that is operated by the IPFire project. It is used to make calls and conferences and it supports instant messaging.
A developer account is required to use these services.

The primary protocol we use for telephony is SIP (wp>Session Initiation Protocol).

Please use the following credentials to register:

Registrar: ipfire.org
Caller name: your real name
Username: your UID - 900
Password: your password
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.

Secure communication

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


Instant messaging can be done via Jabber (wp>XMPP). Use the following login credentials:

Username: first name.last name@ipfire.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.
