Can anyone give my some assistance as to why I can't sign in to Lync 2013 using the Lync 2013 Basic client.

Screenshot for details.

Any assistance is welcome.

Thank you.

Ensure that the Lync Server is up and running by checking the Lync services are being up. Also check the Front End service being started - see this:

Moreover, is the server listening correctly to TCP port 5060. Verify if the firewall is enabled that TCP port 5060 is allowed. You can also check this thread:

I would recommend uninstalling or disabling any web filtering or web protection (pop up blocker, internet security software's \ programs and then try logging in.

Heyas,

An interesting thing I have found when a perform a NSLookup on the SIP domain the result I get is failure of the lookup.  See attached screenshot.

Can you provide clarification?

Thank you

Finally worked it out. The reason why I couldn't sign was the SIP address was pointing to domain lab.local when it should have been labs.local look at original screenshot closely. When I re-published the topology and assigned the necessary CA's to it the Lync client worked perfectly.

My final query is that there anyway I have identified this quickly using the Lync logs or some sort of troubleshooter.

Thank you.

uuuhm .... sorry - but is your last post a question?
the NSLOOKUP you try is wrong
should be _sipinternaltls._tcp.domain.com not _sipinternaltls.tcp.domain.com

btw: make sure lyncdiscoverinternal.domain.com points to FE-server
