Lync 2013 and force tunnel RRS feed

  • Question

  • Guys,

    With Lync 2013 is it now possible to use with DA force tunnelling and if so do I need Lync 2013 server and client, or just the client?

    Thanks

    From my point of view IPv6 support for Lync 2013 is a server feature first : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj204965.aspx. From a support point of view, I would say that Microsoft will support this scenario with Lync 2013 client and Server.

  • I have heard that Lync 2013 is now fully IPv6 capable, but I haven't had anyone try it through DirectAccess yet. If you do, I would be interested in hearing your results. I would imagine it will still be Microsoft's general recommendation to let Lync run as "edge" though, because just like VPN, the encryption that DA brings to the Lync packets may cause jitter in your calls.

  • Hi

    First thing i can say is that Lync 2013 client behavior when connecting in DirectAccess changed. I'm in the process of moving from my company UAG box to URA. I configured the same exceptions in NRTP and I was surprised that Lync Client was trying to access internet infrastructure (many Sync_SENT in NETSTAT.EXE -ANO). I had to add FQFN of each internal Lync 2010 server.
