Benefit of using Skype Director as next hop from a reverse Proxy RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can someone tell me whats the benefit of using Skype Director Server as Next hop from a Reverse Proxy Server?

    There is not very much documentation about using the Skype Director Server.

    The only information i could find is using the Director as next hop from the Edge server with sip traffic.

    If i understand right the Director only proxy the web url traffic to the Front End server.

    Is there some security mechanism in the Director for use with Reverse Proxy?

  • Hi,

    Base on my understanding, the Director Server should authenticate both SIP and HTTP\HTTPS traffic.

    For the security mechanism with Reverse Proxy, it should be similar with Edge Server.

    Best Regards
