Chat / IM

Instant messaging (IM) is a type of online chat that offers real-time text transmission over the Internet. A LAN messenger operates in a similar way over a local area network. More advanced instant messaging can add file transfer, clickable hyperlinks, Voice over IP, or video chat. Non-IM types of chat include multicast transmission, usually referred to as "chat rooms". Depending on the IM protocol, the technical architecture can be peer-to-peer (direct point-to-point transmission) or client-server (a central server retransmits messages from the sender to the communication device).

In Skype for Business Server 2015, Is there a way to disable clients from retrieving location information from the LIS/Secondary LIS every time the client registers with the server? I want to prevent the client from performing a HELD request to get location information when it first registers to the server. Is this possible with the on-prem server?

Hi, is there a way in Office365/online Exchange to set a rule to delete messages with a particular subject line after 3 days for ALL users? I think I can do this with an outlook macro locally but would rather do it in o365/online exchange centrally for all users.

One of our users has had an issue where his computer will restart unexpectedly, and upon restarting, the settings page in chrome for incompatible applications opens up. The first time it happened, the application listed was an Intel driver, which I applied an update to. It has since happened several times, and still shows the Reset and Clean up page, but now with no incompatible applications show up. The user has not been doing anything out of the ordinary, and there are no windows error messages, save for an unexpected shutdown flag in the logs (ID 6008).

I have an NEC DT700 series phone. I think specifically it is a DT730.

Right now the message light is blinking, but the voice mailbox is empty.  It also has "MSG >>>" on the screen.

There is "Frontdesk" as the identifier, but I cannot clear that off.

Hi,

I need to know the available SWIFT Message Parsers for reading unstructured BLOB and structuring the data into XML or some other format.

I did my research and found a few to name below but wasn't convinced if they are enterprise level and scalable.

1. Informatica has a tool to extract messages but it has limitations.
2. Data Transformation SWIFT OOTB library.
3. Volanté
4. Paymentcomponents (http://www.paymentcomponents.com/) parser is easy to use and finds all errors.


Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance.

Does anyone have advice on how to add a basic messaging app into your web project?

I have a website and would like a simple in-app messaging feature - are there any good guides people have seen out there on how to execute this into a project - would PHP be good for this?

Any advice would be great!

We are transitioning to Skype for Business from an older product called Spark.  With Spark it is fairly easy for each user to populate their own
groups with contacts that are saved and used to IM thru skype.  How can we populate groups without adding them one user at a time. We have some fairly large
groups

I have a "Contact Us" form where customers can email us to get product information.  It seems like I must have a gaping hole in the code that allows people/bots to append long messages.  I was writing the customer data to a table, and I had a text field for extra information.  Despite several honey pots I was getting a regular stream of bots filling in the text field.

I'm not doing anything with my db and I have removed the text field, but I still things appended to the form.  Attached is the latest example.  I have also attached the Contact Us page that is having the problem.

I am needing a revolving server system that changes IP address once it starts getting hits from sever filters. It needs to be seamless and use the same email address that we establish to send emails out from, but configures a different IP with every 50 to 100 emails. This is what we need to get a marketing job done and the email messages we want to send have to fit the character count specifics and font type. The subject line is the most important and the size cannot exceed X kilobytes for the total email to reach target market.

Hi,
 
 My customer has been using TextBox (a service of Line1 Communications, Inc. https://www.businesstextbox.com/) to send text messages directly from their computers in the past.
 Since they switched their phone system to VoIP system, TextBox failed to run. The tech support of TextBox software company told me that the VoIP phone carrier is the problem.
 TextBox software utilizes main business phone number to send/receive texts from recipients cell phones.
 Having said that, is there a software out there to replace this TextBox software?

We are just starting to use Skype For Business for Internal IM.   We have setup Skype For Business to not allow External Contacts to be added. We didn't want Employees to start chatting with Friends and Family while at work.

We are looking to get rid off WebEx for Presentations and wanted to use Skype For Business, though it looks like we can't Invite Customers to the Meetings since we blocked External Access.

Is there a Way to Block External Users for IM, though Allow Inviting External Customers for Presentations?

Thanks!

Is there a Microsoft tool for testing Skype for Business video performance?  There exists for audio NetworkAssessmentTool.ext which allows you to make hundreds of simulated skype audio calls and gain insight into network preparedness for audio. Is there any similar tool that looks at Skype for Business online video?
