A presenter can also promote an attendee to the role of presenter during the meeting. Participant Types Meeting participants are also categorized by location and credentials. You can use both of these characteristics to specify which users can have access to specific meetings. Users can be divided broadly into internal and external users: Internal users have Active Directory credentials within the enterprise and connect from locations inside the corporate firewall. External users are those who temporarily or permanently connect to an enterprise from locations outside the corporate firewall. They might have Active Directory credentials. Lync Server 2010 provides conferencing support for the following types of external users: Remote users who have a persistent Active Directory identity within the enterprise. They include employees who are working at home or on the road, and others, such as employees of trusted vendors, who have been granted enterprise credentials for their terms of service. Remote users can create and join conferences and act as presenters. Federated users possess valid credentials with federated partners and are therefore treated as authenticated by Lync Server 2010. Federated users can join conferences and be promoted to presenters after they have joined the meeting, but they cannot create conferences in enterprises with which they are federated. 39

Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Security Guide Anonymous users do not have an Active Directory identity and are not federated with the enterprise. Customer data shows that many conferences involve external users. Those same customers also want reassurance about the identity of external users before allowing those users to join a conference. As the following section describes, Lync Server 2010 limits meeting access to those user types that have been explicitly allowed and requires all user types to present appropriate credentials when entering a meeting. Participant Admittance In Lync Server 2010, anonymous users and participants for whom authentication fails are transferred to a waiting area called the lobby. Presenters can then either admit these users to the meeting or reject them. This means that anonymous users and participants who use dial-in conferencing but for whom authentication fails no longer need to disconnect and retry. These users are transferred to the lobby, the leader is notified, and the users then wait until a leader either accepts or rejects them or their connection times out. While in the lobby, the users hear music. Anonymous users and participants for whom authentication fails are transferred to a waiting area called the lobby. Presenters can then either admit these users to the meeting or reject them. By default, participants dialing in from the PSTN go directly to the meeting, but this option can be changed to force dial-in participants to go to the lobby. Meeting organizers control whether participants can join a meeting without waiting in the lobby. Each meeting can be set up to enable access using any one of the following methods: Organizer only (locked)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
