Lync via Office 365 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have an office of about 15 people.  6 people work in the main office, then the remaining people work in different geographic locations.  We are looking to use Lync as a communication tool and we have some licenses for Office 365 (via MS partnership), we are looking at possibly using Lync 365, however we want to retain the our Sharpoint and Exchange  on premise.  I did a bit of research and came across requires for a AD Federation server and a Federation proxy server (which has to be on a separate box). 

    Can someone tell me what exactly we need setup on own end to have AD Sync and Lync (presence would be nice).  Also, what ports does Lync use, do we have to open any special ports for it to work?  We are hoping that hosting this in 365 will remove any special filewall/port settings
