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).

Share tech news, updates, or what's on your mind.

Is posting a message to my entire network as easy as clicking the pencil icon next to Messages, then creating a message with no recipients?

If not, how do I do this?

We did recently move our Citrix xenapp78 license server to another VM. Only the one server out of 9 others is producing this warning.
What do we need to do to correct or stop the messages. See below)
Note: message indicates pool name "Xenserver01"
 that pool had only the one server in it and we have removed the server from the pool so there is only the VM xenserver01.
thanks

Hello everyone,

I have a VBS script that runs when I double click it just fine, but when I attempt to put it in the Windows scheduler to run at a given time every morning it does not run.  If I ad-hoc execute the script, Choose "Run" from the scheduler, it does not run.  But If I double click the vbs script in the directory it executes just perfectly.  

We receive a file via email every morning regarding Solar Kw and Kwh produced during the previous day.  This file is not an attachment, but is a URL pointing to the web location of the file.  The vbs script looks in Outlook email for any new email messages and then the body of each un-read email message for the "http://xxx.ccc.yyy" URL associated with the file.  It then opens connection to get the data file downloaded to my PC.  

I have attached the vb script and any help would be appreciated.  

Scheduler Settings:
General:    
    Name: Locus Data
    Account:  << My Account >> - Admin
    Run Whether user logged in or not = Yes
Triggers:
    Daily at 8:00 am
    Enabled = Yes
Actions:
     Start a program
     Program/Script:

      Add Arguments:

I have installed skype for business (office 365) on a domain computer/user.
I can send invitation to external users and they can join the video conf. via the link.

However:
- When I add the skype for business user to the contact list on a skype (windows 10) or skype app the skype for business does not get the notification that someone added it to their contact list
- Adding the external skype user to the contacts in skype for business, neither side can see the other's status
- attempting to initiate a call from either direction to the other fails

Hi

Just moved to a new server and I am trying to import data from a csv file into a mysql table.

The file has approx 198,000 entries and only 7904 are imported, there are no error messages

this code worked on my previous server, so I am sure it is to do with the configuration of the server - I am not sure where to look, cPanel so far has not come up with a solution.

the query I am using is

$query = "LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE '".$file."' INTO TABLE egis FIELDS TERMINATED BY '|' OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '\"' LINES TERMINATED BY  '\n'" ;

(where $file is the file name)



my.cnf does have local-infile=1 set

[mysqld]
innodb_file_per_table=1
default-storage-engine=MyISAM
performance-schema=0
max_allowed_packet=268435456
local-infile=1

[mysql]
local-infile=1

Hi Guys,
I have a client who is using Google Hangouts to message/stay in-touch with their employees.  The only problem is Chrome gets buried behind multiple windows for any one user and they don't see the notification when someone tries to chat.  Is there a setting for 'Always on Top' or similar so when someone gets notified the alert moves to the front of all open windows?  

If not, would another chat system do so like Yahoo Messenger?

Hi,

Got a Samsung S8 and Lync (previous version of Skype for Business) goes offline after some time.
Probably it is related to power safe options but don't find it.

Please advise.

I'm looking for an internet messaging utility for use on a LAN in a clinic, for uses such as telling someone on the phone that an appointment has arrived without having to go to their desk.  I thought that the Windows msg command would work, but it seems to not, because  a msg can't be sent to a machine name and all the users user the same logon name (yeah, I know, I'd never seen that before either.)  Environment is Windows Server 2012 domain with 18 Win7 and Win10 PCs.

Does any one know of such?

I regularly (at seemingly random intervals) get the attached message popping up on my mobile device (Android).  If I tap continue or cancel it will go away and act normally.  Sooner or later the messages pop up again.  Sometimes immediately, sometimes a few day pass, sometime weeks pass before it happens again. SEE attached screen shots

Restarting the devise had no impact.  Still getting that message popping up intermittently.

This happens at home when on wifi, at the office when on wifi, on site when on wifi and when mobile on only cellular network.  I'm using the built in android email app to check emails.  It happens if I have wifi disabled and am on cellular network only.  It happens if I have mobile data disables and am on wifi only.

It will go away for periods of up to a week or more, then start happening multiple time an hour.

Seems very random.

If anyone can help that would be great! Capture.PNGScreenshot_20170804-121959.pngScreenshot_20170804-122003.png

Hi all,

We are looking to install Skype for Business POC (On premise) and want to know if we will be able to take advantage of conducting meetings across Skype. Im confused with terminology and all the version differences. So basically one of the features we would like to take advantage of is to be able to conduct meetings with audio/video and file sharing.


Can anyone shed some light?

we have very recently switched from a barracuda antispam appliance to using exchange online protection. we are a hybrid config with no mailboxes yet migrated to on-line.
I'm having an issue trying to get the spam scoring to "work". i.e. I get messages with the scl set to 6 in the header but they are not going to the junk folder as desired. we have had 2 microsoft tickets on the topic.
first thing, after reading an online article, we added 2 transport rules to our on-prem that are supposed to take anything with an scl of 6 and move it there. then Microsoft told my boss to turned off the users ability to set junk filter properties and have it set to disable.
second, today they told me it wont ever deliver them to the junk folder so I have set it to quarantine, which we really don't want unless its the only option.

surely there has to be a way to have the junk folder work... I'm attaching a screenshot of the automation advice when I opened todays ticket and had the message analyzed in case it helps.

macOS 10.12.6 Messages no longer finds all iPhone contacts and earlier SMS Messages (to iPhone!!) were not delivered, To: entries are now colored orange (or red).

Messages returns 'Messages cannot send a message to 978846XXXX.
1234567890 is not registered with Message'

978846XXXX (used real number) worked before - why not now?
Entering known iPhone number as 10 digits turns green and returns 'Google Talk (Offline)'

Tried 'Jabber' (whatever that is) set to 'Available" - nogo here!

Sending message to myself with iPhone OK with iPhone - nothing on macOS Messages

What now?

Syncing on prem to office 365 via adconnect and migrating mailboxes to exchange online in the cloud.  I have a couple of questions:

1.  If I migrate a users mailbox, and the user does not have a license in Office 365, will the user still migrate and have full functionality with the migrated mailbox for 30 days?  After 30 days, would this go to the recycle bin and need to be restored?

2.  I am assigning licenses through msol by using a on premises group, then have a script that reads the group and if a member set's license sku's in O365.  On some occasions (small amount), the license is added to the group, and the script goes to set a license sku but this fails.  I think this is due to giving a license to the user at some point, then taking it away.  Does giving a license set any attributes in msol which would cause this?

3.  I set a SIP address for skype for business for on prem mailboxes and accounts that are syncing to O365.  I've noticed when some accounts were migrated, that skype connection was lost and I had to re-license the user.  Any explanation why this would happen.

Really appreciate any knowledge on this.

Thanks

Our Lync 2013 Server hosts to sip domains.  a.com and b.com

I have an employee who can log in to b.com fine on his computer but not on his mobile device.
Users in both a.com and b.com can log in on both computers and mobile devices, myself included.
I attempted to log in as the problem user on my iPhone and was unable.  

The troublesome user account's sip domain is username@b.com.  
Not sure what is going on.  I tried removing then adding the AD account from the Lync solution via the control panel.
I've compared AD and Lync 2013 account information with a b.com user that CAN log in on a mobile device and they are configured the same way.  

I'm at a loss.
