Live Meeting Client Port Range definition RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    I know this is not the Live Meeting Forum, but i haven't actually found one and my request is somehow related.
    In my deployment I defined Min and Max Media Ports for Office Communicator 2007 R2.

    I read about OCS 2007 Live Meeting Client and how to define the Ports here:
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb964029.aspx

    But So far I haven't found those values in my registry.

    On the internet i found something that might be helpful, if these values would actualy exist.

    Any ideas on where to find those values ?
    Or do I have to manually create them ?

    Thanks

  • Those registry keys and values do not exist by default since the normal behavior is for the client to assign dynamic ports in the entire 1024-65535 range.  You need to manually create those keys and values.

    The article you referenced (link is actually http://blog.danovich.com.au/?cat=75) is for creating a custom Active Directory GPO template for controlling those values.  That can be used for mass deployment and configuration of the settings, but if you simply want to test the configuration out you can manually create them on a client.

    Be aware that the Office Communicator settings are stored in a Policies key which if set manually would be wiped out each time the computer is restarted, while the Live Meeting keys are not stored under a Policies key.  That means that any changes to those you stay on the client permanently (called tattooing the registry).

  • Hi,

    thought I had the right link in clipboard, sorry for that.

    Thanks again for your fast response on my question.

    I just found out that with an edge server deployed I don't have to use media ports:

    Though i think I give both a try in my enviroment.
