[Freeswitch-users] Skypiax as a windows service

Ok, I think I know where's the confusion here. Let me clarify:
1. FS run beautifully as a service - that's why I assumed it should work.
2. Skype client runs as a service very well too.
3. When running FS as a service with Skypiax (hence Skypiax as a service),
Skypiax doesn't seem to find the SkypeAPI.

In the Wiki page
ice it's says that Running Skypiax on Windows as a Service is "Not yet
written" therefore I assumed it's a known limitation.

Are you saying it isn't?

Anyway, the farming solution you suggested should solve the problem - I'd

EG: in the "farm out" scenario there will be FS talking via TCP to a
"farm client" (on local machine or remote). The "farm client" talks
with Skype client instances running on the same machine the "farm
client" is running on.

yes, it uses TCP for this. So you would end up with FS (with Skypiax
module) running on RDP while the Skype client instances are running as
services, on the same machine (or in different machines). FS will talk
to Skype client instances via TCP.
Is this acceptable to you?

Other question: why not running FS as a service too? If you run FS as
a service and Skype clients as services, all things would works? Why
you want to use RDP for? (sorry for the silly questions, I just want
to understand better).

What do you mean? I believe that Skypiax (as an FS module) works when
FS is run as service. Your problem seems to me that you cannot run
Skype instances under RDP because they cannot access the sound device.
Is this correct?
