Skype is for doing things together, whenever you’re apart. Skype’s text, voice and video make it simple to share experiences with the people that matter to you, wherever they are.

With Skype, you can share a story, celebrate a birthday, learn a language, hold a meeting, work with colleagues – just about anything you need to do together every day. You can use Skype on whatever works best for you - on your phone or computer or a TV with Skype on it. It is free to start using Skype - to speak, see and instant message other people on Skype for example.

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

I am having issues getting Skype of Business to open on iOS with my internal lync 2013 setup. A few years ago I was able to install the cert from the lync server onto an iOS device but this no longer seems to be working.

When I attempt to sign in I get the message "We can't connect to the server. Check your network connection, advanced options and try again."

I have had a user try this on android and it downloads and installs the cert and works without issue. This is only happening on iOS it seems.

I am only trying to get this to work on my internal network, external access will be down the road. Any help with this would be great!

Skype sound not working.  The sound works on other applications no problem. I've checked the device settings - done the audio test - has worked fine. Am running both Skype for business and "ordinary" Skype but they've lived happily together until now.  Try the Sound Echo test - not a peep out of it...any suggestions. Thanks.  Skype version 12.1803.279.0
Thanks

How is a two server Edge pool in Skype for Business 2015 server on premise load balanced?  
If I just have one server in the pool it works just fine.  As soon as the second server is added, no one can connect.
We have the external NICs load balanced and NAT'ed so that we only have to use 3 public IP's instead of 6 or 7.

Hello Experts - I've been asked to deploy a video conference system for a meeting room to use with services like Skype and WebEx.  I got a quote that came in well over 20k which is far too much for us.  I'd like to see if I can setup a system myself using a less complicated configuration.  For example, the proposal included a VoIP bridge to our existing phone system, audio mixer, ceiling mounted speakers, amplifiers and so on.  There is a dedicated PC in the room so I'm thinking of just mounting a decent USB camera on the wall under the display and a ceiling mounted microphone which connects back to the PC's 1/8" audio jack.  We could then use the display's built-in speakers to hear the audio.  Maybe my setup is too simple and I'm missing something.  What would you recommend to get the job done but keep the price reasonable?

I would like to make it so a mac is not able to connect to email via active sync but all other devices are. I know mac mail uses EWS but if i do a full disable of EWS in Exchange command shell it loses connection with Skype for Business as well. Is there any way i can have my cake and eat it to?

Skype For Business

How do I force  automatic login for Skype for business on client computers.

Skype is such a nice took to have in your environment but at the same time so useless if people aren't logged in.

Is there a way to automatically sign users into Skype when they login on their computers ?

As always we trying to avoid going to each user to update their settings manually.

Looking forward to hear from the experts.

We have a Skype for Business 2015 solution hosted by a third party (Not O365). I have been asked for detailed reporting such as

Number of calls into the company by a person (external only)
Total number of call received (external only)
How many of those calls answered within 10 sec (or around 4 rings)
How many of those calls answered outside of 10 sec
How many of those calls not answered (dropped/missed)
How many of those calls went to voice mail facility

I want this for some users - and some response groups. I don't need it for all users or all response groups.

My SfB supplier is telling me that the inbuilt reporting in Skype is mainly for fault diagnostics and have suggested a third party products which is extremely expensive based on a per user basis, and I have to pay for all users even though I only need reporting for around 10%.

Can anyone tell me if SfB can natively generate reports like I want? And if not, can anyone recommend a solution please?

Hi,

User name spelling shows incorrect when just one specific user tries to search for her/him.

I have checked AD, name spelling is correct.

When I search for that user in Skype, the spelling is correct.

It is just one user that continues to see wrong spelling.

Please advise any solution.

Thank you in advance.

Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

Just looking for recommendations on the best way to transfer to Skype for business. I have it with one email account but my "ordinary" Skype account is using another email address. What's the best way to get my contacts across to the SFB account? Do I need to tell all my current Skype contacts that I am using a new account? Should I then uninstall the "ordinary" Skype?
Thanks

Hello all,

One of my customers is having an issue with Skype for Business.  Two companies are trying to communicate with each other.  We'll call them Comp_ A and Comp_B.

Comp_B has no issues at all seeing users in Comp_A.  They are always available.  When Comp_A tries to look at the contacts for Comp_B, they will show "presence unknown".  It will stay like that and Comp_A cannot chat to Comp_B UNTIL Comp_B sends a message to a user in Comp_A.   Then the user in Comp_B will show as online, active, away, etc....that is until the next day then they go back to showing as "Presence Unknown" again.

I did an NSLOOKUP and everything comes back looking fine.

All of my Office 365 users have a Office 365 Business Premium license.   We have Conference numbers and Conference IDs assigned by our Audio conferencing service. I see where it takes about using 3rd Party and Import/Export, though I don't actually see where you can enter in the 3rd Party Provider and Import the Numbers for the users.

If I select one of the existing Providers they all want a 6 Digit Conference ID, ours are all 4 Digit.

I would like to be able to use our existing Audio Conferencing system with Skype For Business.

Thanks,

Dear Experts,

I have a client who launched Skype that is already installed.

After launching Skype, she got the prompt for elevated privilege to update Skype.

My client informed me that this has never happened before.

Usually the behavior is, the user signs in to Skype first and then gets the prompt whether to update or not.

Is what my client said correct?

How can I explain to her in layman terms on the Skype update?

I have a sfb 2015 server and clients. I have a user that has been assigned numerous alias email address in exchange, but just 1 sip address for SFB.
ie: users primary email address =jane.doe@domain.com sip: is the same in exchange 2010
has an alias of officeadmin@domain.com, moderator@domain.com and james.doe@domain.com(This is a user whom left)
In skype if I search for james, along with the multiple James that come up, Jane also comes up also in the list of James

Can Skype be set to search only primary sip and not alias address?

TIA

My company require IT to host a meeting where presenter will present their video to many internal skype4business users. At my testing environment, the video is very laggy and un-smooth at viewer side. I tried both share desktop and share program.
Is there any  tweaks or configurations need to be made on server side in order to improve video streaming quality?

Thank you.

Hi

We have Azure AD Connect software that currently sync our AD password and users to Azure portal. We have installed Skype for business locally and we can log into this software by manually put in our AD username and password

We dont have local front end skype server and we only use skype for business for one -to - one collaboration. Authentication will be from Azure AD

Now we would need to improve this so users dont need to put in their username/password manually. I can see the option for seamless SSO and Modern authentication

 

Basically from my reading, you would need to turn on SSO in Azure AD connect tool and this option will then be available in  Azure portal, adding 2 Azure URL into intranet zones and that is


I just wonder if anyone here actually implement this and can share some experience. Any chance of implementing this solution for some testers first before rolling out to the whole company as if I made the change in Azure AD connect tool, it seem to apply to all users

In a Lync 2013 environment with an inside pool server and an edge server in the DMZ, how do I enable users to be able to IM with other external (not within the company) who are using Skype?  This could be another company's users or just individuals using Skype.

Hi Guys,

One of our client is looking for solution for Video conferencing, they have skype for business  and they want to make conference through skype for business.  The room size is 10 mtr x 10 mtr and no. of participants are 15.

They want us to provide a touch screen display (86") and they want the smart camera (meaning the camera to focus automatically on the person who is talking now).

Now they suggested Polycom EagleEye Director II with 2-EagleEye IV-12x cameras.

The question is :
if they buy the touch screen and connect the EagleEye cameras (either via HDMI or USB) to the screen , will the camera function of auto focus to person would work ? meaning they would buy only the item I mentioned.

Please let me know how it would work , and if not what is the best idea / workaround.

Thanx

Hello all,

I need to configure the Sonus gateway to route inbound calls to Toll Free number (main number) based on their area code to their particular response group on my Skype for Business server.

For instance, I have a response group for Chicago with DID 312XXXXXX and I have a main toll free number in which case all the calls come to this particular DID (800XXXXXXX) so I need to route all incoming calls from Chicago to the Chicago response group and the same thing for every other state.

I made the area codes already so all calls coming from Chicago state is directly forwarded to the Chicago response groups but the only thing I couldn't do is route all inbound calls coming to the Toll Free number to the response groups.

I would appreciate any advise on this.

We are implementing Skype for Business O365.  I configured External DNS (Go Daddy) with an appropriate CNAME and SRV records  for Skype for Business O365.  Externally (outside of my office network), I am able to connect to Skype but I can not connect in the office. it says that Server is unavailable after typing a password.

In the office we have Windows Server 2012 DNS server  (split brain DNS) for our domain.

How should I configure my internal DNS to make it work. I tried to configure My internal DNS exactly as external but for some reason it does not work.

Please let me know if you have ideas why it does not work internally (in the office network).
