[AfriNIC-rpd] Remote Participation for AfriNIC-13

Dear Colleagues,

For the duration of the AfriNIC-13 Meeting, we have setup two mechanisms 
for remote participation:
* a streaming server to listen to audio of the proceedings and
* a Jabber server to interact with fellow attendees.

For the benefit of remote participants who wish to follow the 
proceedings of the conferences, meeting sessions will be broadcast live 
between 24 - 25 November 2010. In addition, an instant messaging server 
will be available to post comments and/or queries.  Streaming will be in 
English and French.

Live Streaming:
The live audio stream will be available at the following URL :- 
<> (this link will be available 
from 24 November 2010)

Most platforms should have a client immediately available (windows media 
player, quicktime, real, winamp, vlc, mplayer... etc.) capable of 
playing back the stream. Typically, all you need to do is navigate to 
the aforementioned URL and your browser will automatically launch the 
appropriate application necessary to listen to the audio. Alternatively, 
you can launch your favorite media player and from the "File" menu 
select "Open URL", enter the URL above and then hit "Ok".

Instant Messaging (IM ):

For ease of use, AfriNIC supports two methods to connect to the meeting 
Jabber services; either through a web interface using your web browser, 
or through a conventional Jabber client.

Those with jabber clients/software can join the meeting room,

A list of jabber clients can be found at

If you have no access to a jabber client, you can alternatively send 
their comments and/or queries by email to live-comments[at]

If you would like to participate, but are unable to setup a jabber 
client, you're welcome to use the web interface available at: <> [You'll want 
to join the room afrinic13 at
