Hi, Do I need a sound card in the Terminal Server (2003) to get the microphone working?

I have installed Express Talk on a 2003 Terminal server. The SIP client seam to work fine except the the microphone is "mute" on the TS client, so the call connects and the TS Client can hear the people on the other end but not the other way around.

I have read that some people certainly have SIP phones working on TS, so it must work somehow. What is the trick?

TIA,

Tom

A similar question was asked and answered on a Microsoft forum here:  http://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/list/en-us/default.aspx?dg=microsoft.public.mac.rdc&tid=ac74498c-0606-4e9a-b581-ff6f73874986&cat=en_us_26259D8A-9EE2-4596-C2A3-93D20A867953&lang=en&cr=us&sloc=en-us&m=1&p=1

Basically, the answer was:  "This isn't possible with native Windows Terminal Services. It supports only audio redirection from the server to the client, not the other way around. You need Citrix for this."

Oh, and since your clients can connect and hear the other party, you probably already have a sound card in the Terminal Server.

A Google search turned up a product called ThinLinc, which may be of use to you:  http://www.cendio.com/products/thinlinc/features/frontend-for-windows-terminal-services

I also found a reference to another product that might work called Galeon.  The reference is on a forum here:  http://forums.logitech.com/logitech/board/message?board.id=microphone_general&message.id=128

Unfortunately, the Galeon page is (as mentioned in the forum) in Spanish, and my Spanish is way too rusty to dig very far.  On the off-chance that your Spanish is better than mine, here is that link:  http://www.slmsistemas.com/

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the accept, glad I could help!

Don't feel bad about leaving this one hanging; I had forgotten about it myself until the cleanup notification came through.  So I guess thanks also to younghv.
