| | On site BES with Hosted OCS R2
Please Login to Remove!
Ok so we have a strange scenario.
We have our own BES 4.1.6. Everyone in the company also has OCS R2 which is hosted.
We are actually the hosting provider, We provide hosted Exchange, BES, OCS,Sharepoint, CRM, Unified Comms etc etc. We have decided to eat our own dog food and move everything across to our hosted platform.
BES will be one of the last things for us to move and it will be quite some time until our BES and OCS server will be within the same enviroment.
I have been searching for some more detailed documentation on OCS and Blackberry. I have found a few things about how R2 is no longer compatible with Blackberry OCS.
Does anyone know of a standalone client for Blackberry that will allow you to connect directly to a hosted OCS server? From what I can tell the client is coded to attempt to connect via the BES directly to an internal OCS server with no option to configure this.
The standard Microsoft OCS client allows you to manually specify the sign in server, is there anyway to do this with the Blackberry OCS client?
