Add Edge Server IP Options

Microsoft Lync Server 2013 allows you to configure IPv4 and IPv6 addresses for each interface for the Edge Server and Edge pool. To do this, you do the following:

  • Enable IPv4 on internal interface: Select the check box if you want to apply an IPv4 address to the Edge Server or Edge pool internal interface

  • Enable IPv6 on internal interface: Select the check box if you want to apply an IPv6 address to the Edge Server or Edge pool internal interface

  • Enable IPv4 on external interface: Select the check box if you want to apply an IPv4 address to the Edge Server or Edge pool external interface

  • Enable IPv6 on external interface: Select the check box if you want to apply an IPv6 address to the Edge Server or Edge pool external interface

You can also configure the Edge Server or Edge pool to use a network address translation address for the external IP addresses. You do this by selecting the check box The external IP address of this Edge pool is translated by NAT.

NAT support. Network address translation (NAT) is not supported when you are using hardware load balancing, so do not select the NAT option if you are deploying an Edge Server pool with hardware load balancing.
