Does the Skype Edge server need the "Client for Microsoft Networks" enabled on the external interfaces? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Figure this is an easy question for someone.

    Does the Skype Edge server need the "Client for Microsoft Networks" enabled on the external interfaces? I have an Skype Edge server with one NIC on the internal network and 3 NICs on the DMZ. All the NICs have "Client for Microsoft Networks" enabled. It seems to me that normally that service would be off on network interfaces that face the DMZ or Internet. On the Reverse Proxy the "Client for Microsoft Networks" is unchecked on the external NIC and checked on the internal NIC which seems like the normal way to do things. Netstat show that the server is listening on the NetBIOS ports on all NICs on the Edge server.

    Thx in advance

  • Yes, you can disable "Client for Microsoft Networks" on the external interface. It is not needed for Skype for Business Edge. Be aware that also the Firewall is on.
