Hey Experts,

I am getting ready to deploy Lync 2010 and have a question about external users and Live Meeting.  Say I am a Sales person and I need to setup a Live Meeting with 10 seperate potential customers.

1.  Do those customers have to be federated to view the meeting?
2.  Will they get a link for the client to install or do we have to point them to that manually?
3.  Are they assigned a username or password or is there another way to authenticate to the system (or do they even need to)?

Thanks for your help!

I'm going to refer you here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff945947.aspx
They do not have to be federated as "Public IM Conferences" are not considered to be federated users. This handy dandy article basically tells you what you need to have set up for it to work and how it works!
Good luck! :)

That is for PIC (which is for presence and IM), what about Live Meeting?  We are going to be setting up webinar type meetings with external users and I just want to know how that will work.  I have already read through most of the technet articles I am looking for some ot describe the process as it pertains to setting up one of these webinars, through Lync, to an outside customer.

Ah! I'm sorry, I misunderstood you.

For Live Meeting the user will not require any credentials. The only thing they will need is the client as well as the link. However, it's important to note that they should install the client (which there is a link to install it from the Live Meeting invite) 15 minutes or so prior to the meeting starting.

Did that answer your question, or did I misunderstand again?

No that should be it.  So they don't need to be federated at all, we can do a webinar (A/V conf.) with anyone as long as they have the client?

Exactly. They are external/anonymous users and as long as they have the LINK and the CLIENT they will be able to be a part of the meeting. ^_^
