Lync Application and Desktop Sharing - Restrict remote access/Telnet RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a customer and they are paranoid about using Lync application/desktop sharing which could potentially enable remote users from getting into their internal IT systems.  They are asking if we could restrict application/desktop sharing specifically for appls with remote access capabilities (e.g. Telnet, etc.)? Anyone could share any information relating to this? Thanks!

  • You can restrict sharing to specific trusted people, but not to specific applications.  If you need this functionality, I think you'll need to lock down desktop/application sharing altogether and find a separate solution for this.  This is going to be difficult since you can't know what would have remote access capabilities in the first place, a web page can give you enough of an app to do this if allowed.

  • We can’t do this with Lync Server natively. Maybe you want to vote idea at
