Thank you very much Sebastien,

All that information is going to be very helpful ! I will start working on it asap.

But before I get into those servers configurations, I'm asking myself if ring clients can use a ldap server like OpenLdap as name server out of the box.

Usually in institutions you try to reuse your ldap server for authentication and/or providing accounts to applications like ring or tuleap (that we are also using ;) ).

Cool. This is some different pieces we host for Ring and you will need if wanted.

1. The name server, to be able to register pseudonyms. We host ns.ring.cx on a Ethereum blockchain. But you can do whatever you need for your case, the documentation is here: https://tuleap.ring.cx/plugins/mediawiki/wiki/ring/index.php?title=Name_server_protocol (For a personal account, I just use a json hosted on my website). You will have nicknames like address@hidden.server

2. The turn server (turn.ring.cx) used for pass through the NAT and for data transfer. We use a simple coturn server and I'm currently writing this: https://tuleap.ring.cx/plugins/mediawiki/wiki/ring/index.php?title=File_transfer (incomplete). You can use a coturn server

3. Optional (and more complex): For push notifications, we host a OpenDHT proxy and a GoRUSH server to send notifications to Android and Apple devices (doc here: https://github.com/savoirfairelinux/opendht/wiki). If you want to use your own server, you will need to recompile a version for these devices with the certificate for your app.

I hope it's helping.

Have a nice day.

Hello, ring Team ! 

I met with some of you guys yesterday at your stand @UQAM  during the seminary on OSS. 

As promise I tried Ring last night and it worked successfully between a mac and a Linux computer. 

Nevertheless I have not fully achieved my use case as those clients are preconfigured to use your servers.

I need to configure equivalent servers in order to have the app working in a LAN and trough a VPN.

I'll keep you posted.
