I have a strong interest in Jami since the beginning because of its protocol design which make it as difficult to censor as bitTorrent &co is.
It turns out that I’m traveling in China regularly and out there it is Wechat or nothing, and that’s make me pretty uncomfortable because it might me requesting the persons that I want to stay in touch outside of China to install Wechat.
Anyway, I used to test Jami in China 2 years ago and it didn’t make it. So before going back to China I wanted to try it thought a VPN to simulate a long distance call. I connected my pc to a Jami account A and my phone to an account B then connect my phone to VPN in Asia. The text messages kind of work even if it takes time (maybe DHT update ?) but I’m not able to make a call.
- voice and video
- from phone to pc and reverse
- multiple Asian location: Japan and Korea
- wait 1h to be sure the DHT is well updated
It stays in “search” (ie: the other device never ring).
Can someone try a long distance call and tell us if it works ?
