I'm just looking at the option of allowing remote access users to connect to our Standard Lync server for everything other than Voice & Video.
At present, remote access users come in over a VPN which terminates at our firewall. I have created a new firewall rule to allow these users access to the Lync server itself (over all ports), and presence and IM seems to work (I can also get the share desktop working but that involved a peer-to-peer rule which we cannot keep in place).
The one thing I can't working is the "New Whiteboard" or "New Poll" etc.
Does anyone know of a way to allow Lync to work over a VPN? For now we don't want to put an Edge server in.
Any help is appreciated.
Failure is an indispensable prerequisite of success. It is how you learn the lessons you need.
