Lync 2010 and Skype federation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Received my provisioning request from Microsoft and ran the following commands in Lync 2010:

    Remove-CsPublicProvider -identity MSN

    New-CsPublicProvider -ProxyFqdn federation.messenger.msn.com -VerificationLevel UseSourceVerification -Enabled $true -Identity Skype

    Successfully created the following:
    Identity          : Skype
    Name              : Skype
    ProxyFqdn         : federation.messenger.msn.com
    VerificationLevel : UseSourceVerification
    Enabled           : True

    I can connect from Lync to the Skype contact xxxx@outlook.com and send IM and make a call to the skype machine. I CANNOT IM or call from skype to lync. The skype client show the lync contact as "offline",  a "contact request sent" message appears on the skype client but is not delivered to the lync client.

    I am using the latest skype client 6.7.0.102 and running Lync 2010. Any ideas on why this is occuring would be appreciated.

  • Please check you have created the SRV record _sipfederationtls._tcp.<domain> for federation.

    Please check the port 5061 is opened in outbound and inbound flow for Lync internal and external interface.

    If all above are done, use Lync Logging Tool and have the Lync client logging tool enabled

    to collect trace file on Lync Edge Server.
