Nextcloud Talk have been around for some time now. Maybe you’ve already tested it, maybe you didn’t. In any case now would be a great time to try it out.
We just added the full blown Signaling Server in the mix, meaning that the limitations when running the the default TURN server are now gone!
In a co-effort with @morph027 and @szaimen we’ve been working for two days to get the new code in master. When the default TURN server is installed, you will now be asked to install the Talk Signaling Server as well, which is what makes the magic happen.
How it works
The Signaling server is proxied in Apache, so you need a second domain for it to work, e.g: talk.yourdomain.com and make it a CNAME of your already existing nextcloud.yourdomain.com. When that’s done, the only thing left is to open port 80 and 443 (if not already open), and run the script.
I’m very pleased with the result, and hope that it will help many organizations, home users, and SME’s to a more privacy oriented way of dealing with remote meetings, chats, and work – instead of using something like Skype or similar.
Yup, it’s your turn
We work hard so that you can play hard, and now it’s your turn to try it out and watch the magic in front of your eyes.
To run it you basically need one command:
sudo bash /var/scripts/menu.sh
Then just choose Additional Apps –> Talk
If you don’t have the menu script available to you, just run:
sudo bash /var/scripts/update.sh
