  • Hi,


    As far as I know, PIC should work for OCS.


    Did you check http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/communicationsserver/HA102030071033.aspx and http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/thankyou.aspx?familyId=b257340c-2420-40d3-9b1e-f46c718574cc&displayLang=en?


    Did you provision your federation with MSN? And did they apply the changes on their side?

  • Hi and thanks for your answer.

    I did not things like that, I thaugh that it was free for the beta test.

    Apparently there is is a mean to have a free trial. Some body know something about that ?

  • Hi,


    Sorry, but there is no such thing as a free trial. Enabling PIC with MSN, AOL and Yahoo would need several changes to their routing configuration :-).

  • The provisioning process is required because not only does your AP have to federate with the PIC providers, but their AP has to federate with you. Each of the PIC providers configures each of its federated partners individually (there are thousands).

  • Hi,


    Thanks for your answers,

    It's a shame that it's not possible, but I perfectly understand why.

    I just asked the question because for some companies were Live-Messenger is allowed OCS 2007 became less attractive, even if there is much new functionality.

  • Hi, I'm new with LCS and OCS. I'm installing a OCS and an Edge Server to provide IM Public Connectivity (Allow internal users to send IM to external users in MSN). I have a doubt, Is it necessary to buy licences to provide this access ? How can I get and install it ? I'm using the Beta version of OCS 2007. Tks !
