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 have a client with a central office here in Atlanta, and 4 (soon to be 5) satellite offices in different states.

They have a meeting every Monday, for which they are currently using GoToMeeting. But, I am curious, would Skype for Buisness (formerly Lync?) be a good alternative?

Ideally, they would want to have virtual presence in these meetings i.e., it's like everyone is in the same room.

Has anyone implemented this, and what can you tell me about it?

I am in the process of following this article http://lyncme.co.uk/microsoft-lync-server-2013/the-complete-home-lync-lab-part-1-overview-of-lab-and-microsoft-exchange-2013-server-setup/

However, I would like to know the steps necessary to for my Lync clients to work off the network.  I can't quite figure out where to NAT and to what IP... there is the Edge, Front End and the KEMP so any help would be great.

Perhaps another step by step that is out there or could you tell me the missing pieces in the above article?

Thank you Experts

I have a MAC Book Pro running OS X El Capitan version 10.11.2 It has 16GB Ram and we've tried reinstalling WebEx and downloaded the latest. We tried this plugin This is the plug in I'm downloading. It's directly from sick.webex.com https://sick.webex.com/mc0901lsp13/webcomponents/docshow/docshow.do?isPluginInstalled=no&siteurl=sick&pluginDir=Flash%20Player.plugin&rnd=0.3429503919709953 and can't get it to launch. It works on other MACs

Hi,

We have one SFB 2015 Standard edition server and one Edge server configured in our network.  There is no reverse proxy in our network and also we are using third party wild card certificate for both edge and standard edition server.  

Currently I'm having two issues.

1.  Mobile clients are able to login externally without any issues. However, they cannot login while connected to our wi-fi.  After logging in using 4G network, I'm able to work on SFB with wi-fi enabled.  Only the authentication part is not working on wi-fi network.


2.  None of the our internal users can login to SFB client from externally.

Please find attached documentation that clearly explains my network and settings.  Any help in this is really appreciated as the issue is in our live environment.

Regards,

We're getting an increasing number of requests to our service desk to allow the one-off running of a Webex or GoToMeeting session. Users cannot run the client as it's blocked through AppBlocker.

It was suggested that we allow the two applications through AppBlocker however our office manager didn't like the idea of users once again being able to let unauthorized suppliers onto our network. (I've asked Citrix and there's no technical way to prevent the remote control)

I'm very interested to know how other organisations approached this issue, your thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, Horice

what would be the best service to use for a conference call for more than 800 attendees on the call. Right now we are using GoToWebinar which is so annoying, every time needs to be updated and not all the PCs have admin rights/

Hi, I'm after some advice and would appreciate any feedback.

We currently use Skype for Business running on an Audio codes One Box Professional appliance. We leverage a SIP trunk for our PSTN inbound and outbound calls as part of our enterprise voice component. We also use Skype for Business for all video conferences. The solution works beautifully and we are very happy with it.

We have some employees who are using Skype to join conferences etc. and it got us thinking. Whilst we understand there are some differences between Skype and Skype for Business, these differences aren’t that significant that we shouldn’t seriously consider using it. Our major issue is what do we do with our existing PSTN number ranges as we cant "port" those to Office365. I have read that Microsoft plans to have voice in the cloud at some point which would work great for us as we could then become truly cloud enabled and do away with having to maintain a physical media gateway appliance. This however would still mean that we would be paying for the service via the Office365 subscription model.

I just don’t understand why Microsoft would have two products that almost do exactly the same thing and even market both products to be used as a business tool. Who would pay for a product if they can use the free version? I understand we would need to purchase credits to place calls, but we wouldn’t need to pay software licenses for using it.

I was thinking that one way to achieve this may be to…

Hi, im completely new to Microsoft Lync Server.

we are having the following issue with our Lync Front End Server

LYNC Server = Windows Server 2012 R2

The Service "Lync Server Front-End" Service will not start.  Error = "Windows could not start the Lync Server Front-End on Local Computer.  For more information, review the system Event Log.  If this is a non-microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code: 1008193491



Tried to stop and restart the service but it is stuck at Starting status.
Lync Services fails to stop or restart
Tried to reboot server.

Checked and made sure the logon account used to start the services is correct.  Using the "Network Service" account

i get the following events in Event Viewer:

event1
event3
 

on a side note,  i also noticed that Windows updates will not install.  Download completes successfully but install fails everytime.

it may or may not be related.

anyway, need a Microsoft Lync Front End Server expert if one is available to help

thanks

Would anyone know where i can get the Skype for Business on prem install?

I have been looking around but can't find anything.

We are trying to create a skype server, but we want it on prem, not the cloud version.

Hi, we would like to determine whether there is a way to setup Microsoft Outlook or Skype for Business to create Skype for Business meetings by default?

Currently when creating a new meeting in Outlook, people tend to forget to create Skype for Business meetings and as a result, they have to go back and update the meeting as a Skype for Business meeting.

If we can set it so a Skype for Business meeting is created every time people would not have worry about ensuring it’s a SFB meeting.

Any thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated.

I have a Skype for Business Server 2015 single Standard Edition with (1) Edge and (1) Windows Application Proxy deployed.
I want to allow the users to be able to use PC-to-PC communication, but I don't what the Phone Tab or the Voice Mail or the Dial Pad available.
I don't have Enterprise Voice or Dial-in Conferencing enabled in the server-side configuration.

How do I remove the Phone Tab, Dial Pad and Voice Mail from the client.

Hello Experts,

  our company have on premise Skype for business without public certificate we contact Microsoft  to open PIC after they confirmed it's ok

when we try to contact public IM , we get this error.

1047; reason="Failed to complete TLS negotiation with a federated peer server"; fqdn="federation.messenger.msn.com:5061"; ip-address="134.170.96.28"; peer-type="FederatedPartner"; winsock-code="10054"; winsock-info="The peer forced closure of the connection"; source=xxxxxxx

and from edge

Outbound TLS connections to one or more federated partners have failed because the partners do not have the root certificate installed on their server that is needed to validate the local Access Edge Server external edge certificate.

The following federated partners are affected:

Partner FQDN:               federation.messenger.msn.com
IP Address:                 134.170.96.28
Certificate Subject:        federation.messenger.msn.com
First Connection Attempt:   Sunday, January 3, 2016 02:18:20 PM
Number of Failed Attempts:  1
Recent Connection Attempt:  Sunday, January 3, 2016 02:18:20 PM

Cause: Each of the identified federated partners needs to obtain the root certificate corresponding to the local Access Edge Server external edge certificate and install it in the local machine store of their own Access Edge Server.
Resolution:
If possible, contact the administrator of each identified federated partner and refer them to Knowledge Base article TBD.

In the past we have used the free version of Skype.  However, recently,  one of our large customers has standardized their whole company on Skype For Business.  I quickly found out that using the free Skype Client on calls with them did not work well as I could not see their shared content.   What is the easiest way for me to upgrade so that I can participate and initiate conference calls with this customer.  I know Skype for Business is a enterprise capable solution - but we don't use it...so I just need something simple that will allow me to initiate and host meetings in Skype For Biz, but not interfere with anything on my own corporate network.  Can someone help?  Is there just a simple Skype for Business application that will run from my laptop like the free Skype?  I don't mind paying something for an annual subscription.   The Skype for Biz site is overwhelming and I don't see anywhere to download just a simple program for Skype for Business?  Help.

I recently installed a Cisco WebEx Server in my network. I have the certificates setup, users added and it is licensed and ready to go. However, every time I start to use it on my MacBook Pro with OS X 10.11, I get a message in a black bar at the top of the browser that the browser I am using is not supported. I have Safari, FireFox and Chrome. Any thoughts?

Hello,

I am setting up new certificates for our Lync 2013 pool. We have one FE server, one Edge server and one more RP server in the mix. I uploaded a new Local certificate (using internal CA), but now I need to update the Oauth certificate as well.

I created the request via the deployment wizard, run it through the CA and got the .cer file to the Lync FE server. However, I am not sure of one step during the Import procedure. Basically, am I needing the key to be with the .cer? As far as I understand, the .cer did not even ask me to include the private key with it.

This is the step that I am asking about - basically, is the Oauth certificate being imported like the default Local certificate without the key, or did I mess something up during the request part?

Step in question...
