Office Communicator 2007


I'm trying to setup SIP Federated domains on our OCS 2007 server. The goal is to able to find and communicate users in the other domains through Office Communicator.  Can someone help me where I can get documentation on how to accomplish this task. The other side is using 2013 Lync Server. Thanks in advance for your time.

Wanted to add that according to the documentation, if I right click Microsoft Office Communication server 2007, and properties, I should be able to see "Access Methods" tab. From here I should be able to "Allow discovery of federated partners", however I am not even able to see the "Access Methods" tab.

Is this all for the same site? i.e. is Lync and OCS used by the same company? Or are there two different companies?

If it's different companies, then you need to setup federation on each servers.
Lync 2013
OCS 2007 R2
OCS 2007

What documentation are you referring to? And on what server are you looking for that tab?

This setup is for setting up external companies. When I go in to configure the Global properties > Edge Servers, In the Access Edge and Web Conferencing Edge Server window, I am asked to enter the FQDN for the internal interface of the Access Edge Server. This is where I am stuck. I have no idea what server name should go here.

so it turns out that I need a Edge server which is going to sit in the DMZ. Need to configure this server first before I can move forward with the rest of the tasks.

Yeah, your edge server enables external comms. from your OCS/Lync environment.
Some useful reading for your design considerations.

Unless the Edge server is configured, the OCS server does not show the options "Access Methods" tab.
