What is Jitsi Gateway to SIP? a server-side application that allows regular SIP clients to join Jitsi Meet conferences hosted by Jitsi Videobridge.

Install Jigasi

Jigasi is a server-side application acting as a gateway to Jitsi Meet conferences. It allows regular SIP clients to join meetings and provides transcription capabilities.

sudo apt install jigasi

During the installation, you will be asked to enter your SIP account and password. This account will be used to invite the other SIP participants.

Configure a muc component in your XMPP server that will be used for the brewery rooms. If your server is Prosody: edit /etc/prosody/prosody.cfg.lua or the appropriate file in /etc/prosody/conf.d and append following lines to your config.

Component "internal.auth.[your_domain_name]" "muc"
   storage = "memory"
   modules_enabled = {
   admins = { "focus@auth.[your_domain_name]", "jigasi@auth.[your_domain_name]" }
   muc_room_locking = false
   muc_room_default_public_jids = true
