we have a problem internally which limits the ability to talk with external servers for login and client connection creation. Can't login.
The company would like to use JabberVideo for communication with users who are working out of their home office for whatever reason and need to take part in conferences taking place at one of our many locations. To do this we would be required to open additional ports or external IP addresses in our FW. This is not acceptable to the people in the data protection department. We could however achieve a solution if we were able to insert the company's proxy settings in the program. These settings are in-place for all users, no exceptions.
Is there a version available where proxy server entries can be put in-place or can we do this using a configuration file?
Better yet, we would like a document from cisco which describes the communication to the outside source www.jabber.com boot.ciscojabbervideo.com. Which ports need to be opened to this address, which addresses need to be opened to contact the many servers supporting this service?
Our FW works well with IP Addresses and not doamin names.
Using IP addresses is not an option since we use GeoDNS for media traffic. I do not believe the proxy settings for the client will work as when configured on the client means that to login via the client those credentials go through a proxy, which is not the case for our service.
