Federate Skype for Business .local domain RRS feed

  • Question

  • My organization is planning to upgrade Lync 2013 to Skype for Business 2015.

    We are currently using .local domain internally and planning to federate to Skype (consumer) once the upgrade is completed. Will there be risks if we use our .local SIP domain?

  • Federation will not working using an internal name for a sip domain. Federation requires name resolution and certificates, external parties including Skype (Consumer) will not trust or know how to route traffic to a .local sip domain.

  • Hi hyaesmilla,

    Based on my understanding, your internal local.domian cannot use in the public network now, so please try to change your local.domain to another one.

    If you want to do federation for SFB ,you need to deploy Edge server first.

    You could refer to the following to deploy edge in your environment

    Moreover, if you want to do federation between SFB and Skye, you could do like following :

    1.Configure Federation and PIC.

    2.Configure at least one policy to support federated user access.

    3.Configure the Skype PIC provider setting.
