Introduction

This page contains instructions on how to use the big blue button (BBB) webinar server for an online meeting/presentation using the Stellenbosch University Library webinar server.

Network

  1. Fast broadband internet connection => 256KiB/s kilo bytes per second. (Not required when connecting on campus)
    Test your internet connection speed at: http://www.speedtest.net
  2. Ensure that your internet connection does not block the ports required by BBB, namely 80 (HTTP), 9123 (Desktop Sharing), and 1935 (RTMP).
    If you have strange problems when connecting, ask your local IT support for help to ensure the ports are open to the internet.
