Presence in SharePoint is actually provided by Outlook.  You would need Outlook 2010 or 2007 installed (and sometimes it needs to be running) on the machine you are viewing the SharePoint site with.

I have logged in to Office Communicator, Sharepoint site, and Outlook, but still the presence indicator does not show the status in Sharepoint.

Try repairing your office installation.

Hi Chap,

Earlier I was not getting the Indicator itself, but after repair of my office I have got the indicator, but when I sign in Outlook, OC-2007 the indicator goes green, but not in SharePoint site.
I could not able to see other people status also in the SharePoint site.
Any settings I have to do in SharePoint settings.

Find herewith the screenshot attached. Presence Indicator does not glow in SharePoint

Looks like you don't have the User Profile Sync setup between SharePoint and Active Directory.  In order for the presence controls to see work in SharePoint, SharePoint has to have the SIP Address from Active Directory in the user profile.  This is how it identifies the user to display their presence.

User Profile Sync is configured in Central Administration.
