Dear All,

I have OCS 2007 R2 installed internally in my network. MOC used now in the internal network, we don’t have external access until now.

Now; we are looking to publish the OCS to external so we can use the MOC from outside the network, add contact from MSN messenger, Yahoo … etc.

What we have to do???? What exactly I need to implement?

Please help

Thanks

You need to install an OCS 2007 R2 Edge server in your DMZ. Here u have instructions: http://www.shudnow.net/2009/01/05/office-communications-server-2007-r2-enterprise-deployment-part-1/

Edge server adds complexity to your network design. For example you need at least three internet IP's for the external interface of the Edge. You also need to buy a SAN-certificate and also install an ISA-server.

However running OCS without an Edge server is like having Exchange without SMTP to internet, so you will install an Edge sooner or later :)
