  • I have tried logging on with the administrator account but I get a blanc - not authorized - page. It seems that my communicator is able to access it because I don't have any address book server errors.


    By the way: if you look at the OCS MMC console, click on the OCS pool, look at the status tab and expand the Address Book Server Settings I can see:


    Synchronization time: 01:30:00
    Output location: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007\Web Components\Address Book Files\Files
    File share location for internal connections: https://internalwebfarm/Abs/Int/Handler
    File share URL for external connections: https://externalwebfarm/Abs/Ext/Handler


    So I'm not sure if the "/Handler" entry should be there. It was added as default to the internalwebfarm link so I was adding with the external link.

  • HI again!


    Everything seems to be ok on there server as far as I can see. I'm no longer sure of the expected result when accessing the ocs external. When I do a serarch in my communicator client on my internal network by typing an "a it displays every user in our AD starting on a regardless of if they are enabled for OCS or not. But when doing the same using the Communicator mobile I onle get the users that are enabled for OCS, what should I expect. And is there a way to logg the traffic from my mobile client to my internal ocs.


    Thanks again!

  • Hi Henrik,


    It seems that everything works fine. I'm telling you this because I know what happens if Communicator can not reach the ABS server. Then you get a very clear error stating that the adress book server can not be reached. In some cases you are not able to make outbound calls via a PBX as well since the policies can not be loaded. Reading your post I may conclude that this is not the case in your environment.


    To log traffic you can use a tool named Wireshark (Network Protocol Analyzer). Please refer to http://www.wireshark.org or just analyze the Communicator log in C:\Documents and Settings\%personalaccount%\tracing


    Good luck and have fun with OCS!

    Same problem here. ISA works fine, I can retrieve the tshoot.html page. But the communicator says 'cannot synchronise address book information'.

    both trying externalfqdn/abs/ext/handler as well as /abs/ext/ doesn't give anything reasonable back.


    Hope to find out some more through the forum.


    Thanks, Erik

  • Hi can you try to access another service like for example the live meeting groupexpansion service?


    If the reverse proxy plus the external url's are configured in the right way you should at least get access to the page above...
