  • If you are asking whether a GoogleTalk user can have a voice call with a Lync user, the answer is no.  You can however have presence and IM chat with a Lync user as long as the Lync user has the XMPP gateway configured in the organization.

    If you want to send the gmail user a Lync Online Meeting invite, the gmail user can join the meeting with the Lync Attendee client and have voice and video caht with the Lync user.

    Here is a good place to start to understand the XMPP gateway

    http://blogs.technet.com/b/drrez/archive/2011/06/15/microsoft-lync-server-2010-resource-kit-interoperability-with-xmpp-systems-using-the-xmpp-gateway.aspx

    There is no additional licensing required for users to have an XMPP gateway. You would need at least a lync standard edition server licence and user CAL.

    And here is the place to start to understand licencing

    licensing in Lync is done on trust. There is no key to enter.

    If you installed from Eval media, you can convert to full Lync by doing the following:

  • No it is not possible for a GoggleTalk user to have a voice call with a Lync user.  You can only have P2P IM and presence.  The only public IM that you can have voice and video with is Windows Live Messenger.

  • thank sir,

    1- do you have any walk through documentation of XMPP gateway configurations, plus what other advantage XMPP gateway has if configured in my environment.??

    2- can you briefly tell me about lync server licensing i mean do we need license for server as well or license come with lync client only?

  • Check with NextPlane and their federation service. You need to have an XMPP gateway installed for every internal SIP domain while with NextPlane (paying 3rd party solution) this is not an issue.
    Ask for their roadmap and if it includes google voice federation.

  • Hi,

    There is no direct tracking of licensing in Lync Server.

    But you can easily count the number of users from the command line

    This will give you the number of EV users (for which you need standard, Ent and Plus CAL's

     

    (get-csuser -OnLyncServer -Filter {EnterpriseVoiceEnabled -eq $true}).count 

    This will give you the total number of users, for which you need at a minimum standard CALS (note this will also include EV users, so the totals will overlap)

     

    (get-csuser -OnLyncServer).count

     

    Hope that helps, let me know if you need anything more

     

    Tom

  • thanks tom you are great, that was very useful.

     

    1- can we order only CAL type of license for lync 2010m separately what i mean separately because last time i ordered it came with server which had 100 CAL included but this time i need to order 100 CAL license separately because i want to expand and give access to my users in regional offices too so what do you recommend ??

     

    2- i dont know the main reason but i tell you what that i have purchased 200 CALS included with server but now i have activated users more than 200 why does it work ?

    i use ent version of lync please put some light on that.

     

    thanks

  • #1- yes, you can order CALs without a server.

    #2- it works because CALS are not enforced but on the honor system.

  • the reason you can have more users than CALS is that lync isn't forcibly stopping you, even though you don't have enough CALS.

  • are you asking what the effect is of not buying a CAL for your users?

    if that is the question the answer is: you will be illegal and legal action could be taken against illegal organizations.

    Am i getting the question correct?
