SIP Trunking with Interoute One (e-office)

from Unified Communications by Joachim Farla [MVP] by joachim.farla@e-office.com (Joachim Farla)

Today, we are the lucky owners of a fully functional Microsoft Office Communications Server R2 environment connected to Interoute One Services (SIP Trunking Provider).

Interoute is one of our partners in SIP services and a Microsoft Gold Partner. A couple of year’s ago e-office connected LCS2005 to the VoIP cloud of Interoute. However, our current infrastructure only supports Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2, so we needed to make sure that Interoute’s service will also work correctly with the OCS R2 Mediation Server.


Unified Communications How-To

from Johann’s Unified Communications by jkruse

The Microsoft Unified Communications “How-To” training tool is a Silverlight 2 application that provides step-by-step instructions for common UC tasks. You can customize the How-To application to your company’s needs based on the UC features you’ve installed.

OCS 2007 R2 Edge Certificate Wizard gotcha

from msgoodies by Lars Gramkow Nielsen

During a recent customer deployment of OCS 2007 R2, we came across a small issue that might be relevant for some of you.

We created an offline request and pasted the CSR into GoDaddy’s request interface – and were promptly told that the CSR was not valid.
