Connecting to a meeting

For the best experience, ensure you are connected through both audio and chat

Audio

We recommend you connect to our meetings with an SIP client. To do this, you need a SIP client installed on your device.

If you need help selecting a SIP client, Linphone is an example SIP client that is free and available on many platforms.

Configuration

  1. Set your display name, which will be displayed in IRC.
    • In Linphone it's under Linphone > Preferences > SIP accounts > Default identity
  2. Update your settings to use a random SIP port (this will help avoid annoying calls)
    • In Linphone it's under Linphone > Preferences > Network > Network protocol and Ports
  3. Probably you'll need to disable IPv6
    • In Linphone it's under Linephone > Preferences > Network > Transport -- toggle "allow IPv6"

Call

Once your SIP client is set up, connect to the CCG call at:

sip:ccg@96.89.14.196

Note: if you also want a SIP account, you can use Linphone's account setup form.

If for some reason you're not able to connect via a SIP client, you can dial in by phone:

US phone: +1.540.274.1034 x6306 EU phone: +33.9.74.59.31.06 x6306

Chat

During the meeting, we use IRC to share links, keep meeting minutes, ask questions, etc. The CCG IRC channel is:

irc://irc.w3.org:6665/#ccg

If you're unfamiliar with IRC, note that you can easily connect through a browser: http://irc.w3.org/?channels=ccg

Now that you're connected, see the IRC Command Reference for help with IRC commands.
