Conferencing Software

Web conferencing describes various types of online collaborative services including web seminars ("webinars"), webcasts, and peer-level web meetings. In general, web conferencing is made possible by Internet technologies, particularly on TCP/IP connections. Services may allow real-time point-to-point communications as well as multicast communications from one sender to many receivers. It offers data streams of text-based messages, voice and video chat to be shared simultaneously, across geographically dispersed locations. Applications for web conferencing include meetings, training events, lectures, or presentations from a web-connected computer to other web-connected computers. Popular titles include GoToMeeting, Cisco WebEx, Microsoft Lync, TeamViewer and Skype.

I had this question after viewing Cisco Access-List Ghost calls.

I get a lot of anonymous calls on my Cisco Video Conferencing System(SX20, SX80, C90)  Is there a way to block these calls.

Currently, all I can do is to set the systems to DnD when I am in a VC Call.  But when the VC is idle, we get about 50 - 100 anonymous calls per day.

One of my colleagues will be giving a live presentation via web browser using an old tool.  Several functions are not working well include the record feature.  I need to record this to make it available to other clients/partners.  If i attend the webinar is there a software package (preferably free) that i can use to record both the audio and video?

Hello,

I am installing Lync 2010 Standard and went through the first stage of AD preparation. However, when I run the actual installation, the first step (Configure Local Replica of Central Management Store) fails. The option selected "retrieve directrly from the Central Management Store" (the other option is Import from a file). I don't understand what exactly is being done here and what needs to be in place. Any suggestions?

Error: "We can’t connect to the server for presenting right now."

Background and Setup Info:
1X Skype for Business Server 2015 FE
1X Skype for Business Server 2015 Edge
1X Web Application Proxy Server (Combined with ADFS) Used for Publishing Skype for Business Server URLs
1X Office Web Apps Server

Internal users can open  whiteboard, Q&A, Polls, and PP presentation just fine. The problem exists only with external users. Also pinging webconf.domain.com times out, not sure if that is related to the issue.

I ran out of options and pretty much went 10 pages deep into Google search trying to find a solution for this. Thanks in advance for any help and sorry if I posted this in the wrong place.

I am using Webex for holding online meetings where i can share my screen etc.

i heard about Skype for business, and i learned that the participants have to have Skype for business account in order to be able to join my conference.  please correct me if i am wrong on this.


so, with webex, all i need to send a link to emails and they get my invite and they can join my conference without the need to have Webex account.

i was wondering if anyone knows about Skype for Business that can do similar like webex, sending to invite to any email.

thanks.

I have a desktop in the front of a conference room and I'd like to have the attendees who are currently in the room (NOT REMOTE) "buzz" in their responses to my questions --kind of like a game show.  I'd like to know see was the first person to buzz in.  I'd like them to use their laptop, android or iPhone device to "buzz" the moderator in front.
 Nothing elaborate here.  All the attendees are in one room, with one pc in front.

Please clarify the below doubts
I am planning to upgrade our exchange server 2010 SP2 to SP3 with roll update 6.
I am planning this weekend to upgrade two client access servers (Client, Hub transport roles) to SP3 and mailbox servers to upgrade next week. If I do this way is there any compatibility, mail flow or any technical issue.

Existing environment

Client Access Servers - 2 Nos
Roles : Client ,Hub transport roles
it’s in NLB = Network load balancer & CAS Array Server.

Exchange 2010 Mailbox Servers - 2 Nos
Roles : Mailbox roles only
it’s in NLB = Network load balancer , in CAS Array Server + DAG configured for mailboxes

I have a problem where a user a single user on a Windows 7 Pro SP1 x64 system with Office 2010 Pro and Skype for Business 2015 client is invited to an Ad Hoc meeting by another Skype for Business 2015 user in the same internal organization.
If the user clicks on the Join Skype Meeting link in the Outlook Calendar Invite, it works fine.
BUT, if someone is already in a Meeting, and attempts to Invite More People in the SfB client,
the user responds to the prompt in SfB
SfB client attempts to join
and then drops the attempt

This happens to the same individual, no matter who in the current conference invites her via the Ad Hoc method.

The infrastructure is an on premise Skype for Business Server 2015 deployment with (1) SE/FE , (1) Edge and (1) WAP

Skype is installed and is on version 7.22.0.109. I am running Windows 7 Pro and I am using the latest version of IE 11. When I go to open Skype I am greeted by "Sorry, we couldn't connect to Skype." From what I understand, Skype uses IE to connect. I have reset IE to it's default settings and also enabled the SSL settings (Use SSL 2.0 and Use SSL 3.0) in Internet Options > Advanced > Settings > Security. I have also tried uninstalling and re-installing Skype and I also turned off IE and turned it back on in hopes that maybe there was a setting issue. Please advise.

We recently signed up with Intercall for an Audio Bridge.  We worked with Microsoft for two hours on the phone and intercall, and no one can figure out why our Audio Bridge won't join the Skype/Lync meeting.  Its like they are two separate things and don't connect to each other even though we have the Dial-In Information setup in the Office 365 for Skype section.  This is the only error we can see and Microsoft can't even figure it out.  Any ideas?

I need to be able schedule and send out invitations easily and actually have the service/software function even though the other parties are in Australia.

Can anybody suggest the best service to use? I am not very concerned about cost but I need it to work well.

Citing personal experience would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I'm looking for a streaming recording program which allows to record anything played on my PC screen for video and voice together.
I prefer it's free or not expensive one. I tried a couple of them, some didn't record voice or after certain minutes of recording, it requires payment.

With Skype installed on a W10 desktop a third person cannot be added to an existing conversation of two people.

The Skype version is the latest.

Any thoughts, experts please?

We just recently deployed an in-house Skype for Business Server 2015. Everything is working great inside the network; however, users are having trouble connecting from devices outside the domain i.e. phones and tablets. The error states that it can not locate the Skype for Business server. It seems to be a DNS issue, but I can't seem to pinpoint it. I have an external DNS entry pointing to my server with ports 80 and 443 open. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
