OCS 2007 R2 - Adding MSN user to Communicator

Hi.

I've just installed a OCS 2007 R2 Enterprise server + edge server. It works fine internaly, but we want to add a MSN account, but we cant.

On the edge server, there is a red cross over 'Clearinghouse' and 'Federated contacts' (see picture below). Should I just ignore these two?

 OCS Edge
Does anyone have a clue about what i've done wrong?

Take a look at this page from Microsoft.  There are several things that must be done to ensure Federation works properly.

I can see that I need to get a license from MS. So I will try that. Thanks for the answers! :)
