If you ask on the Jitsi users list they may be able to give you a TURN server name and credentials you can test against (to fix the ICE error) and if that works, it would not be too hard to set up a local TURN server on the same box running the Jabber server.

Many of the commercial products come preconfigured to use their own relay servers, so you don't normally see these details.  Future versions of Jitsi and Lumicall are likely to have stronger abilities to discover such things automatically.
