No, you did not.  This is _supposed_ to be the best place to get the most 
competent answer to a well-formulated question about GNU Jami.

Alas, this is far from reality.  If anyone casts a rare glance at what is going 
on here, thatʼs rather not a member of Jami team but some passers-by like me, 
who regards Jami as another obscure nonstandard communication network, that is 
of course better than, say, Skype by being freedom-friendly, but better be not 
advertised much nevertheless.

Feel free to do that, if you do not mind to narrow your audience ever more.

Looks like turn.jami.net does not provide you a good service.  Try another 
relay, if you have one at hand.

Thatʼs a good question.  Indeed, the current UI provide a switch to _enable_ 
STUN independently from TURN, which does not make much sense to me.  The only 
explanation, I could surmise, about why there is such a switch, is that it is 
to _force_ some specific STUN-only server.
