LYNC 2010 EDGE: Required or Not Required for Lync Attendee? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We deployed Lync 2010 for Instant Messaging, Presence, Audio/Video calls, enterprise voice and audio/video conferencing. Now we are trying to expand the scope of Lync 2010 server deployment to Internet to allow external clients to participate in A/V conferences.

    Question that I have: do we need to deploy Edge server or not? According to design documents Edge server is required to accomodate external Lync clients who is using Lync 2010 from home, but what about Lync attendee? Does it require Edge? Or it can work over HTTPS?

    If you know the answer please reply to this post.

    Thanks!

  • You do need an Edge server for that. The Edge server resides in the DMZ within your network and is the connection point for any external client like Lync, Lync Phone Edition and thus including Communicator Attendee.
