OC2007 tcp/udp ports? RRS feed

  • Question

  • In which cases does communicate OC2007 clients directly? What port numbers or port ranges are used?

     

    I found informations that client would directly communicate when clients using audio, video or filesharing? There are more cases? There are differences when clients communicate only intern (lan) or also with external usern (lan-internet)?

     

    I know OCS_EdgeServerDeploy.doc. But there are no informations about it.

     

    Best Regards,

    Joerg B.

  • For internal users, IM and Web Conferencing are the only communication types that go through an OCS server.  Everything else is peer to peer, as you've already discovered.  For these services to work outside the firewall you'll need the appropriate edge servers and firewall rules.  Firewall port information starts on page 106 of the Planning Guide.

  • Thanks, Z.!

     

    Is "Live Meeting" with OCS and Web Conferencing the same?

  • Does all Clients need a local installed Live Meeting or is there also a Live Meeting Webclient (based on Active X, Java, ?).

    Both actually. For example when you join a Live Meeting session and do not have the latest LM client already installed, you can choose the web-only version and participate.

  • Sorry, but when I not installed Live Meeting Client, ist does not work. When I click on link in meeting requests (meetTongue Tiedip:user-xy@demo.local;....) I get error message "False Parameter". How can I start Live Meeting over HTTP/s?

    Did you get a chance to download and test the Microsoft Office Live Meeting 2007 Public Beta client at  http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/help/HA101733831033.aspx ?

     

    The simplest way is to copy the "sip:user-xy@demo.local..." string into the Location field to join the meeting.

  • I know the Live Meeting Client. But how can I use the web-only version when Live Meeting Client is not installed?
