-O365 w/ MFA enabled
-Windows 10 64bit
-Skype for Business 2016 (16.0.9126.2259 32bit)
-BToE version 126.96.36.199
-UC Software 188.8.131.5230 (also tried with with 184.108.40.206 and a newer BToE version)
-IP Mode: IPv4
-Connection type: Wall to phone, phone to PC
I cannot seem to sign into my Polycom phone with BToE if my account has MFA enabled. When I sign into Skype, Skype asks for my password to pass to the phone and after I type it in, the phone tries to sign in (it says signing in as ...) but it times out. I can sign into my phone via web sign-in, but I want to use BToE. BToE on both my computer and phone says that it is paired.
I setup an app password on my account, signed into Skype but it still would not sign into the phone. When I type in my app password, the phone fails out quickly and gives me an error ("Skype for Business authentication failed. Sign in again"). I then proceed to type my password and again, it sits and hangs.
I created a dummy account without MFA, signed into Skype and BToE signed me into the phone no problem.
Thanks for your help in advance.

Thank you for your response.
Just to be clear, Microsoft MFA (at least how we set it up) does not involve AD FS. However, is this a blanket statement that Polycom phones do not support modern multi factor authentication of any kind?
