Deploying Edge Server on The Same Box as the OCS RRS feed

  • Question


    I have an OCS 2007 Server running on one box. I want to set up the edge server on the same box is this possible?

    I will use the edge server to allow users to use the web messanger and allow federation with msn, aol and yahoo users.

    We will not be using VOIP.


    all comments are welcomed

  • The setup program blocks the installation of both OCS Standard/Enterprise and an OCS Edge server.  However, you can install Communicator Web Access on the same server (an Edge server is not used for CWA).

  • Yes, you will need an Edge server for that.
