Enable mobility for Skype for Business RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    To provide Skype for business mobility functionality on mobile device, is it mandatory to use Port 80(HTTP) or it can be configured with TCP 443(SSL) ? What is the recommended configuration ?

    Please also suggest if we need to setup a Kerberos account to enable mobility functionality?

  • Hi James,

    In my understanding, Lync mobile clients would always connect to the UCWA web service under “external web site”, and the site is listening 4443 and 8080, this behavior is by design.

    And about ‘Kerberos account’, I don’t see such a requirement.

    Please refer to this official article for mobility deployment:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/skypeforbusiness/deploy/deploy-and-configure-mobility

    And here a great blog about mobility you could have a look at.
