Configuring VidyoRouter General Settings

Follow

Your VidyoRouter transports video and audio streams between endpoints. It also intelligently identifies and adjusts to bandwidth and network constraints.

 To configure VidyoRouter general settings:

  1. Log in to the Super Admin portal using your Super Admin account.

    For more information, see Logging in to the Super Admin Portal.

    The Components page displays by default.

  2. Double-click on the blue link in the Name column for the VidyoRouter component.

    The VidyoRouter pop-up displays.

  3. Enter the following information:

    The ID shows your VidyoRouter ID, which is automatically created and set by the system. This value cannot be changed.

    a. Enter a display name or label for your VidyoRouter in the Name field.

    The Management URL shows the address the VidyoManager uses to communicate with the VidyoPortal.

    This is the minimum required to authorize a VidyoRouter. It’s a good idea to give your routers names that help you remember their locations, such as NYC VidyoRouter 1 and NYC VidyoRouter 2.


    Don’t change this address unless required for NAT traversal or enabling Security.

Configuring VidyoRouter SCIP settings

Before editing SCIP settings, see the Firewall and Network Address Translations (NAT) Deployments and Security sections.

To configure VidyoRouter SCIP settings:

  1. Log in to the Super Admin portal using your Super Admin account.

    For more information, see Logging in to the Super Admin Portal.

    The Components page displays by default.

  2. Double-click on the blue link in the Name column for the VidyoRouter component.

    The VidyoRouter pop-up displays.

  3. Enter a FQDN and Port in the SCIP section.

    These FQDN and Port values are then used by VidyoDesktop, VidyoRoom, and VidyoGateway clients to communicate with your VidyoRouter using Vidyo’s proprietary network protocol. This is the listening address of the VidyoRouter.

To configure VidyoRouter media port range settings:

  1. Log in to the Super Admin portal using your Super Admin account.

    For more information, see Logging in to the Super Admin Portal.

    The Components page displays by default.

  2. Double-click on the blue link in the Name column for the VidyoRouter component.

    The VidyoRouter pop-up displays.

  3. Enter a value in the Start and End fields in the Media Port Range section.

Configuring VidyoRouter Quality of Service (QoS)

This page allows you to set differentiated services code point (DSCP) values for audio, video, and content coming from your VidyoRouter to various endpoints. Audio, video, and content data coming from your VidyoRouter is assigned corresponding values you set on this screen.

With these specified values assigned to media types coming from your VidyoRouter, you can then configure your network router or switch to prioritize the packets as desired.

To configure Quality of Service values in your VidyoRouter:

  1. Log in to the Super Admin portal using your Super Admin account.

    For more information, see Logging in to the Super Admin Portal.

    The Components page displays by default.

  2. Double-click on the blue link in the Name column for the VidyoRouter component.

    The VidyoRouter pop-up displays.

  3. Select Video, Audio, Content, and Signaling DSCP values as desired and provide corresponding decimal values.

    If no values are provided, they all default to zero.

    We recommend setting QoS policies on the network equipment using IP policies rather than here.


    For more information about setting DSCP for endpoints on your tenants, see Configuring endpoint network settings on your tenant.

Configuring VidyoRouter NAT Firewall Settings

This page is used for traversal of a NAT when the VidyoPortal and VidyoRouter are hosted behind a NAT. For more information, see the Firewall and Network Address Translations (NAT) Deployments section.

To configure VidyoRouter NAT Firewall settings:

  1. Log in to the Super Admin portal using your Super Admin account.

    For more information, see Logging in to the Super Admin Portal.

    The Components page displays by default.

  2. Double-click on the blue link in the Name column for the VidyoRouter component.

    The VidyoRouter pop-up displays.

  3. Enter the following information:

    The Media Address Map feature is the preferred configuration option. Only enter values for NAT Firewall fields or Media Address Map fields. Enabling both options and by entering values for each causes the system to malfunction.


    • Enter an IP and port of a STUN server in the NAT Firewall fields.

      A STUN server generally uses port 3478.

      If the system is NATed without a 1:1 port mapping, you must configure the VidyoRouter to use a STUN server residing on the WAN side for network traversal.

    • Enter an IP and port in the Media Address Map fields.

      If the system is NATed with a 1:1 port mapping, hence no port translation, you can define local <-> public address mappings.

      The remote IP address is the IP address that the system is NATed to from the side that users connect from.

    • Select the Media Port Range checkbox and provide Start and End port numbers.

      If only one port is available, enter the same port number in each Start and End field.

      This allows you to define a range of ports available in your firewall.
