Office communicator status not updating
In Office Communications Server 2007 R2, desktop sharing components use RDP, which is also used by Terminal Services functionality in Windows Server 2003.Desktop sharing sessions that use RDP cannot support participants who are running earlier versions of Office Communications Server clients, nor can they include users of the Office Live Meeting service.When a delegate answers a call, the manager is notified that the call has been answered, along with the name of the delegate who answered.Working in Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 R2, a manager selects Call Forwarding Settings and then selects a delegate from among the names in the manager's contact list.Because the desktop sharing client is browser based, interaction with the underlying operating system has to be implemented through a native plug-in.
Call team forwarding options include the following: A call forwarded to a team leader first rings the leader's phone for a specified number of seconds, and then it rings the phones of all team members.
Participants using Office Communicator 2007 R2 can launch the desktop sharing client directly from Office Communicator.
Each participant's desktop sharing client receives graphical data from the Communicator Web Access server, which in turn receives it from the Application Sharing Conferencing Server.
The hosting component drives the desktop sharing session.
This component sends graphical data to the Application Sharing Server or another client, such as Office Communicator 2007 R2, which is capable of understanding Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP).
