Configure WAC for External Access on Lync RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have setup Office Web App Server 2013 (WAC) and integrated with Lync 2013 - it works fine internally, I have Lync Edge working fine and external users can connect. But I'm just after some guidance on how to configure it for external access, I am using IIS ARR as the reverse proxy for Lync.

    Specifically the SSL setup/requirements and Reverse Proxy setup.

  • As far as the SSL requirement, you can just add a SAN to your certificate on your reverse proxy for the external FQDN of your WAC server.

    Make sure you have specified that URL on your WAC using either: New-OfficeWebAppsFarm -InternalUrl "https://internalFQDN" -ExternalUrl "https://externalFQDN" -CertificateName "CertName" 

    or if you have already created the farm

    Set-OfficeWebAppsFarm - ExternalUrl "https://externalFQDN" and restart the services

    Follow steps 17 onwards from this article to configure the WAC on IIS ARR


    • Create a Server Farm for your WAC
    • Move the Rewrite URL to the top
    • Match the following pattern ((?:^en-us/|^hosting/|^m/|^o/|^oh/|^op/|^p/|^we/|^wv/|^x/).*)
