Thomas College Lync / Public IM Services

Thomas College provides Microsoft Lync 2013 to all students, faculty, and staff to communicate internally for text, voice, and video methods of communication. IM, “calls”, application sharing, whiteboards, and group discussions are supported.

These products provide an on-campus and off-campus SIP Communications Service at TLS port 5061. This service can be accessed with Lync 2013 (part of Office 2013), Lync Basic, and Lync 2013 Mobile as well as several third party-apps (iDialog for iPhone for example). OS X users may use the newest Lync for Mac 2011 or Remote Desktop to connect to our academic terminal servers.

Please contact Chris Rhoda in IT Services for more information or to purchase a license.

For more information on using Lync in your class, visit the Lync for Classroom Chat page.
