Using Lync via VPN connection

    Pregunta

  • I am using Lync 2010 client at the office fine. But when I go home and use it via my laptop I get the error saying there was a problem verifying the certificate. I am guessing there is something I need to do to get the certificate installed on my laptop but not sure what to do.

    Any ideas, or help would be great.

    Thanks.

  • Your laptop is not in the domain and it doesnt trust your Lync certificates. You need to open a MMC certificates snap in (computer) on a domain computer, export your CA certificate and import it on your laptop.

    By the way, do you have a Edge server installed yet? You're getting that error because you have a VPN open and the client will try to login on the internal server first. If you have a edge server you wont need VPNs or the CA certificate (assuming your Edge certs are public).

    It would also help if you install the certificate chain that the cert on the lync server was generated from.

  • I have not installed an Edge Server yet. I need to read up on that and figure out how to do it. Any good instructions out there on doing this?

    THanks.
