Voice Chat Server


I would like to host a Voice/Video Chat System in My House...

Mainly I would like to use it as an Intercom System between different rooms.

My main file server is a Linux Box, and thats where I would like to install the server sofware that the various room PC's will connect to.

Anyone have any suggestions as to what Client/Server software solution I could use with a Linux Server, and Linux/Windows Clients?

yes TEAMPSPEAK is a very good solution
but no video so we are using teamspeak for audio with a TS server
and openmcu server and gnomemeeting clients for video
like that the traffic is dispatched on two differents servers placed on two different machines

and we have always the audio to debug video problems

I use TeamSpeak myself. There is a client for Windows and Linux, so it will work no matter what you are running on the LAN.

I decided to go with plain old Netmeeting...

It has most of the features I need... just nothing for Linux... I dont need to go through a server either... its just point to point.

Teamspeak is for groups of people being able to talk to one another at once... I just want to be able to intercom between rooms....

Actually I think there may even be Linux clients that work with Netmeeting.

You can have just 2 people connect to a TeamSpeak server you know.

What exactly do you mean by "intercom"?

Isn't two people talking an intercom?

No.... 2 people talking is not an intercom in and of itself.


An intercom implies Person A at Point 1 wants to talk to and/or hear either room 1 or Room 2, etc. Person A can say.... I want to talk to room 1... or room 2


With Netmeeting this is possible. I havent figured out how to broadcast to all rooms yet though...

With Teamspeak... users log in and join a room. They can speak to anyone in the room, however, 1st of all they had to join the room in the 1st place. Netmeeting doesnt know rooms.... only endpoints. 2nd of all how do you talk one on one with a particular machine with Teamspeak? You have to create a room with just you and the other user.... Thats not what I want.

I want to be able to speak to a specific endpoint without speaking to other endpoints.

Teamspeak is designed for what its name implies.... Teams speaking

with teamspeak you can make several room with a limited number of users and you can talk in this room
for example with two users
i know netmeeting and i can say that is no so powerful as teamspeak except for video of course
