Lync Firewall Rules Viewer
Determining which ports to open and what direction to allow Lync Server 2010 traffic to travel through your firewalls is an important task. Lync administrators need to determine firewall rules and provide this information to their security administrator counterparts. Although this information is readily available from
Microsoft Lync Server 2010 product documentation library, the Lync Server 2010 Protocol Workloads Poster, and NextHop blog articles, it can be a tedious process to consume, synthesize, and share the information in a succinct way. The Lync Firewall Rules Viewer solves this problem.
The Lync Firewall Rules Viewer is a Windows 7 application that visually illustrates the network traffic between any pair of server or client Lync endpoints. When the administrator selects a source endpoint in the left pane, the list of possible destination endpoints this source can communicate with is shown in the right pane.
