Being an office 365 user, I have Microsoft Lync residing on my desktop. It’s been there for several months now. However I have never had an opportunity to use this application.
The other day I found a tool on the internet called “Who can Federate Tool ” which will scan all your Microsoft outlook contacts and identify people that are on the federated list???
Having identified whom of my contacts I should (in theory) be able to contact, I have added one of these persons to my Microsoft Lync contacts list. Next to their name it says “Presence unknown”.
I have then pressed the call button and I get an error message which says “Operation was unsuccessful. The calling service did not respond”.
I Googled this error message and found this link which explains that the mediation service on my front-end may be stopped.
Are there any Office 365 users on Geekzone that are using Lync and if so how?
I’m kind of expecting Lync should work a bit like Skype – have I got this wrong?
Any feedback would be appreciated?
