Since Ver. 8.5.2 Sametime provides video communications across NATed networks or firewall via the TURN server when direct peer-to-peer communications are not possible. Unfortunately this “server” is only a java program which has to be started manually and which will be closed when you log out the server.
Workaround is to create a windows service which will start the TURN server as local system account:
– Download _Windows Service Manager (SrvMan)_ from: http://tools.sysprogs.org/srvman/
– open run.bat (which starts the TURN server) and add the full path to TurnServer.jar
– run SrvMan and add the batch file as service
That’s it, now you can automatically start all servers as windows services
