How To...

Start a ConX Video Meeting:

ConX Video Meeting Rooms are available 24x7, so you never need to “start” a meeting. Just make sure everyone you want on the call knows how to connect and at what time.

Invite participants to a ConX Video Meeting

Step 1: Go to the page: https://www.infocusconx.com/

Step 2: Sign in with your ConX account

Step 3: On the Meeting Rooms page, enter the email addresses of your meeting participants.
Note: you can link your Google account for easier selection of contacts.

Step 4: Click NEXT to select Instant or Scheduled Meeting

Step 5: Click START NOW for an instant meeting.  For a scheduled meeting, fill in the meeting details and click SCHEDULE THE MEETING

Step 6: Confirm the invitation information and click SEND INVITATIONS

Note: You don’t need to do this for every meeting. When your participants know how to call into a ConX Video Meeting and know the time of the meeting, you probably don’t need to send them invitations. But this is helpful the first time.

 

Join a ConX Video Meeting

ConX Video Meeting Rooms can be accessed by many different methods. See the Dialing Guide information under Resources for all the different options.

Here’s just a quick and simple way to join a call:

Use our free browser client, http://conx.infocus.net, on your Windows PC or Mac. Enter your name, the room number and the Guest PIN and you’ll immediately join the meeting.

Try the Share function to share data with your meeting participants. They may need to press *8 on their device’s keypad to see the data stream -- and #8 to get them back to looking at people.

 

Host/Manage an Active ConX Video Meeting:

Step 1: Go to https://www.hostconx.com/

Step 2: Enter your Meeting Room Number and Host PIN

Step 3: Watch as the participant list grows as people join the call. 

From here you can perform these call functions:

  • Lock the conference to prevent any new participants
  • Mute individual participants if their audio signal is particularly noisy
  • Assign Broadcast mode to a participant, which will block all the other video sources and send only this participant’s video to everyone. Great for teachers.
  • Change the layout for everyone. We have many choices, but sometimes you know best.
  • Terminate the call and kick everyone off. This is a good way to make sure there aren’t any stragglers.

Note: to get other participants to join, you can send them an email invite or even call their SIP endpoint directly from here as well.

 

Change your ConX Video Meeting Room PIN

Step 1:  Go to https://www.infocusconx.com and click on “Sign In” tab at the right top corner.

Step 2: Sign in with your registered email and password.

Step 3: From the given room number’s Meeting Room page, click on the pencil icon next to either the Guest PIN or Host PIN.

Step 4: Enter a new PIN number and click SAVE. The new PIN is active immediately.

Network Requirements for Video Calling

Network NATs and firewalls provide

Protection for your network by limiting outside access to an internal network. Some access, however, is necessary for video calling. Therefore, to enable PCs and other devices to place and receive calls with the outside world, while still maintaining security for your network, you must open the following ports for SIP signaling and media streams in the firewall:

Port

Type

Direction

Traffic

5060,  5061

 

TCP, UDP

Outbound

These ports are necessary for SIP signaling

 

25000 - 35000

UDP

Outbound

This is for media streams.  Actual port number used will be randomized and negotiated per session, and will be in the range of 25000 – 35000 for SIP service recommended by InFocus.

Firewalls should permit inbound traffic to TCP and UDP ports that have been established in the outbound direction.

ALG Routers

  • When an ALG router recognizes SIP traffic, it attempts to “improve” the quality of the connection by manipulating the routing information in the data packets. Inbound traffic sent to the router-chosen port is also manipulated to be forwarded to the original source port. Unfortunately, ALG routers do not always properly forward all SIP packets. The result is an unreliable connection. Because of this, we recommend all ALG features be disabled on the router.
