none
restrict users msn - Federation

    Question

  • Hi,

    I wonder if I have to create a political or otherwise only for my internal users to communicate with external users (msn) I release.

    because they release the user to add any contact in msn lync he will be able to add contacts private. that goes against company policy.

    thank´s

  • Hi,

    I am sorry for my misunderstanding in my previous reply.

    As I known, the function you looked for is not available in Lync out of the box. You can try to use Ethical Wall as a workaround. The Ethical Wall is a tool which allows control of authorized communications routes between users, groups and domains. The Ethical Wall for OCS just for your reference. (Although it's for OCS,the Lync is also similar to it)

    You can also try to get a third party Ethical Wall tool and have a try.

  • It is not completely clear what you are asking.  You can create user External Access Policies to control what users are allowed to federate with MSN.

    You also have the ability to control how federation with MSN occurs with the following options in the Provider Configuration:

    • Allow communications only with users verified by this provider
    • Allow communications only with users on recipients' contact lists
    • All all communications with this provider

  • Hi TWHarrington,

    tanks for reply,

    What I want is to create a list of users of MSN that can be added by users of Lync.

    how it works "Allow communications only with users on recipients' contact lists"

  • Hi,

    if you choose Allow communications only with users on recipients' contact lists, which means you do not trust verification levels asserted by the IM service provider. If you choose this option, the Access Edge service marks all incoming presence subscription requests as unverified. If the sender is already on the recipient’s Allow list, the internal server responds to that request. Otherwise, the request is rejected. Similarly, requests for an IM session that are marked unverified are rejected by the client.

    So i believe what you are trying to achieve can be done through this option

  • Hi,

    Tanks for reply,

    I checked this option but what is my contact lists recipients, if I create a contact in my AD pointing to the users of msn they will become reliable and recipients in my contact lists.
    have you ever done this?
