Configuring port ranges for your Edge Servers in Lync Server 2013

Lync Server 2013
 

Topic Last Modified: 2014-02-05

With Edge servers you do not have to configure separate port ranges for audio, video, and application sharing; likewise, the port ranges used for Edge servers do not have to match the port ranges used with your Conferencing, Application, and Mediation servers. However, to make administration easier you might want to go ahead and change your Edge server port ranges to match the port ranges on your other servers. For example, suppose you have configured your Conferencing, Application, and Mediation servers to use these port ranges:

 

Packet Type Starting Port Number of Ports Reserved

Application sharing

40803

8348

Audio

49152

8348

Video

57500

8034

Totals

--

24730

As you can see, your port ranges for audio, video, and application sharing start at port 40803 and encompass a total of 24732 ports. If you prefer, you can configure a given Edge Server to use these overall port values by running a command similar to this one from within the Lync Server Management Shell:

Set-CsEdgeServer -Identity EdgeServer:atl-edge-001.litwareinc.com -MediaCommunicationPortStart 40803 -MediaCommunicationPortCount 24730

Or, use the following command to simultaneously configure all the Edge Servers in your organization:

Get-CsService -EdgeServer | ForEach-Object {Set-CsEdgeServer -Identity $_.Identity -MediaCommunicationPortStart 40803 -MediaCommunicationPortCount 24730}

You can verify the current port settings for your Edge Servers by using this Lync Server Management Shell command:

Get-CsService -EdgeServer | Select-Object Identity, MediaCommunicationPortStart, MediaCommunicationPortCount
