  • Right now I use office communicator 2007 R2. And it connected to OCS 2007. :-)

  • Welcome to "Unsupported-ville," population: you. :)

  • who say that it`s in production.

    But... good for migration, I think

  • If it works, that's certainly good news.

  • What has happen to your developers? They have got some kind lazy -pills? Otherwise it is very hard to understand that why there are no compatibility for old server version.

    It should not be rocket science to add clients a check the server version and behaves like that.

    Hope you are not planning to share the pills with Office and Outlook teams!

  • I have R2 Client working against R1, Only issue this far are with Enterprise Voice, issue being you cannot forward or SIM ring calls anymore :-(
