We released the first version of Microsoft Lync Connectivity Analyzer in February, 2013, and it’s time for an update! The new version adds the following features:
Microsoft Lync Connectivity Analyzer helps Lync administrators determine whether the deployment and configuration of their Office 365 or on-premises Lync Server environment meets the requirements to support connections from Lync Windows Store app and Lync apps on mobile devices. Lync Connectivity Analyzer attempts to connect to Lync Server on-premises or Lync Online by using the same services and protocols that are used by Lync Windows Store app and Lync mobile apps. You can perform the connection tests over your internal network or over an external network that connects to Lync Server or Lync Online. Lync Connectivity Analyzer provides a report with detailed information about each connection step to help you validate your configuration and troubleshoot connection problems.
