Can internal non-OCS users use Live Meeting 2007? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to provide Live Meeting 2007 full functions to internal users who are not Office Communications Server 2007 users?

    I have the non-OCS user installed the Live Meeting 2007 client. The test connection to OCS 2007 server failed. No "Meet Now" option. What they can do only is to join a meeting with entry code and location provided by OCS meeting scheduler. They can not share applications.

    So is there any way to provide non-OCS users the full function of Live Meeting? Can they also schedule a meeting and be a meeting presenter. Or do we need to deploy Web Conferecing Edge Server?

  • Hi,

    Your internal users will not be able to have "full" functionality unless they are OCS-enabled. They can only join existing meetings that allow "anonymous" participants. They should, however, be able to share applications if you give them rights as "presenters" during the meeting.

     

    You won't need to install a Web Conferencing Edge server unless you would like these users to attend LiveMeetings from outside your corporate network (w/out a VPN connection). Otherwise, there is no reason for you to install the WebConf Edge. It won't allow non-OCS users to be able to schedule meetings, you need to enable them for OCS to make that happen.

  • Matt, thanks for you comments. I agree with your thought.

  • So you are saying that this internal ANONYMOUS user does not have to have a Standard or Enterprise OCS Cal either.
