Enabling Web Client and Configuration Utiliy

We are testing the 5.1.1 software in our Lync environment and one of the documented security enhancements is disabling httpd web client and web configuration utility by default when the base profile is set to Lync instead of Generic.

 

Is there a way to enable this feature again?  I saw in the Administrators Guide the following commands should be added to the device configuration file:

 

httpd.enabled 1

httpd.cfg.enabled 1

 

Is it possible to use a base profile of Lync and still keep the http settings as enabled?

Hello jplarsonqg,

Jul 11, 2014 Question: Since upgrading to UCS 5.1.1 and running LYNC base profile I can no longer access the Web Interface

Resolution: Please check => here <=

 

Above explains the two options you have to enable this again.

 

Please be aware of the following when utilizing UCS 4.1.0 or later:

The use of Polycom UC Software versions 4.1.X (“Software”) requires the purchase of a separate Software license for every device that will use the Software in a Lync environment. You may not install, access, or use the Software in a Lync environment on more devices than are listed on your license until additional licenses have been purchased and authorized by Polycom. These licenses should be purchased from the same company from which you purchased the devices. You may operate devices against a Lync server for trial purposes for up to 30 days without purchasing a license. Use of the Software is subject to the terms and conditions of the End User License Agreement.

Polycom reserves the right to audit your deployment to verify that you have sufficient licenses to match the number of devices being used.
