Details

Tested on Flame with FxOS v2.2 and Nexus 5 with FxOS master
Flame connects to 3G
Nexus 5 connects to wifi (e.g. Mozilla Guest)

STR:
1. Open Firefox Hello on 2 devices
2. Make a call from one of these devices
3. Answer this call from the other device

Finally, the connection is not successful.
I am not quite sure who is the owner.
@Mark, could you please help me forward to the right person?

Sorry, I don't currently know how owns the FxOS client, I suspect people watching this component should do.

What I can tell you is that last I knew Mozilla Guest doesn't allow webrtc calls (which is what Hello uses). This is due to various ports being blocked on the wifi.

Thanks, Mark. I think "Mozilla Guest" is the reason. I changed to another SSID, and it works now.
