Specifying Trusted Edge Services

For internal Office Communications Server 2007 servers to recognize an edge service and communicate with it, the edge service must be in the appropriate trusted edge server lists:

  • Access Edge and Web Conferencing Edge Servers. This list includes the FQDNs of each Access Edge Service and Web Conferencing Edge Service that your internal Office Communications Server 2007 R2 servers trust to route SIP traffic, meeting content, and audio-video streams between internal and external users. Your internal Office Communications Server 2007 R2 servers only send outbound traffic to trusted Access Edge and Web Conferencing Edge Services on this list.
  • A/V Edge Servers. This list includes the FQDNs and ports used for A/V authentication for each Audio/Video (A/V) Edge Service that your internal Office Communications Server 2007 servers trust for A/V conferencing between internal and external users. Your internal Office Communications Server 2007 servers only send outbound A/V traffic to edge services on this list. All A/V traffic must be authenticated by the A/V Edge Service.

  1. Open Office Communications Server 2007 R2.

  2. In the console tree, right-click the forest node, click Properties, and then click Global Properties.

  3. Click the Edge Servers tab.

  4. Under Access Edge and Web Conferencing Edge Servers, do one of the following:

    • To select an edge service from the FQDN list, click the name of the edge service.
    • To add a new edge service, click Add. In the Add Edge Server dialog box, in FQDN, type the FQDN of the service to be added—if using an array of Access Edge Services, specify the FQDN of the virtual IP address of the internal load balancer.
    • To remove an edge service from the list, click the name of the service, and then click Remove.
  5. Under A/V Edge Servers, do the following:

    • To add a new edge service, click Add. In the Add A/V Edge Server dialog box, in Internal FQDN, type the FQDN used for access from the internal network—if using an array of A/V Edge Services, specify the FQDN of the virtual IP address of the internal load balancer. In A/V authentication port, type the number of the port to be used by the Office Communications Server Audio/Video Authentication service.
    • To remove an edge service from the list, click the service name, and then click Remove.
