    • Use all configured IP addresses. Select this option if you want to allow any IP address defined on the computer to be used.

      This is the recommended option for IP version 6 (IPv6) configurations.
    • Limit service usage to selected IP addresses. Select this option to specify a specific address to use on the new server. If you select this option, you must enter a value for Primary IP address.

    • Primary IP address. Enter an IP address that the server will use for all communications except public switched telephone network (PSTN). The IP address entered must match the format of the select address type.

    • PSTN IP address. The installation of additional network interface cards (NIC)s to support the PSTN IP address configuration for Lync Server 2013 is not supported on collocated Mediation Server roles.
