The following instructions can be used to whitelist Ubiety as a federated partner for your Lync environment. This is required to enable connection from Lync clients to the Ubiety platform.


1: Pre-requisite:Please ensure the Lync topology has federation enabled.See the following Microsoft guide on setting up Lync federation on the Lync edge server.

2: Pre-requisite:Ubiety uses GoDaddy certificates for Lync interconnections. Please ensure you have the GoDaddy root and intermediate certificates loaded on your Lync FE and Edge servers (you can download from here).Please see here for instructions on how to add certificates using the Microsoft management console on your server:

a: GoDaddy Class 2 Certification Authority Root Certificate – Trusted Root Certification Authority context.
b: GoDaddy Secure Server Certificate (Intermediate Certificate) – Intermediate Certification Authority context.
c: Alternatively, you can use the certificate chain GoDaddy Certificate Bundles - G2 With Cross to G1, includes Root to import all the certificates.

3: Ensure that federation is enabled in the external access policy – enabled “Federated User Access”:

4: Lync Federation:Enable (whitelist) the Ubiety domain using the settings in the graphic below.

Skype for Business (Lync) Firewall Configuration 

In order to effectively use all the functionality offered by Ubiety, certain network access requirements are needed for user devices (tablets, smartphones, laptops, etc), video (VTC) endpoints and Microsoft Lync Deployments.This is especially important for secured environments that have outbound traffic restriction policies on their networks.

This guide assumes that all outbound IP has been allowed from the Lync environment to the internet for call setup and media traversal to enable calls both to and from Ubiety to your Lync environment. If there are specific outbound restrictions, the rules will need to be treated as bi-directional.
