'''Distance''' was a research machine but has been handed down to COSI. It has an identical twin that is currently being used for Alan Beadle's research.
  
It runs Ubuntu 14.04 for compatibility with BigBlueButton, which it the only service that it hosts.

==BigBlueButton==
 
[http://bigbluebutton.org/ BigBlueButton] is an open-sourced Web Conferencing system that allows remote presentations. It is being pushed towards educational use and allows viewing and annotation of presentations and communication through chat, video, and audio.
 
 
 
Currently, the main client runs on Adobe Flash, but a HTML5 client is being developed to support desktop and mobile platforms.
 
 
 
==Setup==
 
A regular installation of Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS is reccomended by BigBlueButton. Next the BBB server is set up as shown on their official [http://docs.bigbluebutton.org/install/install.html Install Guide]. (The current version of BigBlueButton is 0.9)
 
 
 
To add support for the HTML5 client, follow the [http://docs.bigbluebutton.org/labs/html5-dev.html HTML5 Development Guide].
 
 
 
==Errata==
 
 
 
There is a bug for Windows 7 when using BBB that causes it to disconnect. A solution for now is to disable teredo packets on your client by entering the command below into command prompt.
 
<pre>netsh interface ipv6 set teredo disable</pre>
 
 
 
==TODO==
 
* Ongoing beta testing in CS657
 
* Add support for logins
 
* Add support for lecture recording
 
* Write user documentation for instructors
 
* Fix Win7 disconnect bug
 
* Fix screensharing "crosshairs" bug
