Lync Protocol Poster

The protocol poster illustrates in detail all of the ports and protocols used by Lync Server filtered based on the 4 main modalities it supports: 
- IM and presence
- application sharing
- A/V and Web conferencing
- Enterprise Voice

Additionally, it lists the DNS and certificate requirements. Built by the Lync expert community (MVPs, MCM, MCS, PFE, NextHop, etc) for the Lync community, it's a visualization of the complexity of Lync Server's network traffic. Please let us know how we can improve on it!

Security Filters Enterprise Edition

The Security Filter enterprise edition is comprised of 3 products:
- Security Filter Manager
- Security Edge Filter
- Security Web Filter

The Security Filter Manager is a Web-based management interface that centralizes the lockout information, logging, and settings for all the instances of Security Web Filters and Security Edge Filters running in a datacenter. The interface provides detailed information on number of accounts that were locked out, approximate geographic location (based on IP address) of clients attempting to sign-in to your Lync Server environment, type of client use, and more details. The enterprise edition provides the ability to also block Lync Mobile clients that are not authorized to sign-in even if correct credentials are provided.
