frontend/edge server RRS feed

  • Question


    Can I just have one server that is a front server and also an Edge server?


    I have currently deployed Communicator 2007 and OCS 2007 standard edition as a front end server and currently our only server, internal IM works fine now but I want it to be able to send IM to other Instan Messaging software such as AIM, Yahoo Messenger, etc. From researching the way I can only implement this is to have an  Edge server configured, is this accurate?


    and my next question is, can I have only one server for front end and edge? or I have to set up a another server for this functionality?

  • The Front End Server is only for internal communication. If you want to support external access you'll need an Edge server role, which cannot be installed on a Front End Server.
