Hi Gianluca

 

The Kirk Wireless Server 6000, authencates the users using trusted server, as an Trusted Application on the Lync Server

This also means that due to security reasons you can't (Can not) use the devices from outside the internal network.

 

The only way to make this vork is to use a VPN connection or a tunnel to the internal network, to deploy an external server placement, if you want to place basestations outside you network, externally you need to configure your network so they can reach the Kirk Wireless server from here, But the server needs to be internally in the network, not outside the EDGE server.

 

Hope this helps explain the matter

Re: KIRK wireless or Spectralink edge server lync compatibility

Hello Gianluca,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

I am unsure how a Wireless Device (DECT or WiFI) would work without a station to register to?

 

The Spectralink UCS 4.1.0 Software has not yet publicly released so I am unable to discuss it's features and this being the DECT section would suggest to wait for information to be posted there.

 

The KWS6000 to my knowledge is the only KIRK Device to support LYNC so  you would need to check for more details => here <=

Please ensure to provide some feedback if this reply has helped you so other users can profit from your experience.

Re: KIRK wireless or Spectralink edge server lync compatibility

sorry for the insistence but, you didn't give me a answer, because if you say me to read the documentation and in the documentation there's not information about connectivity from outside corp ....

 

if you declare ICE supporting , does not mean ,  external connection support, because it mean that if i use ice to establish a connection to another client it can use ICE candidate, using internaly for example MRAS server that typically are internal interface of Lync edge server, but is not the answer.....

 

anyway , i try to a ask to our polycom country reseller but if you or our reseller  don't able to answer me , i'm pretty sure that i'll choose another vendor .

 

Regards
