Gnomemeeting and Smoothwall

I’ve been using Gnomemeeting to talk to Jono, and it rocks a bollock. Took a little while to set up, though. Things you should check:

  • Does your sound work? I’m using kernel 2.6, so it had ALSA in it and the mic worked fine without me having to do any work.
  • Have you got the mic volume turned up? Use alsamixer to check.
  • Port forward all the ports mentioned in the Gnomemeeting FAQ to your machine (you have to do them all individually; SW1.0 doesn’t support port ranges).
  • Make sure those ports are also available in the “services/external service access” section in your smoothwall configuration.
  • Turn on “Enable IP translation” in the H.323 advanced section of the Gnomemeeting preferences.

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
