Configure your server information

In order to use Communicator Mobile, you need a connection to your organization’s IM system. The server and account information that you use to connect with Communicator Mobile is the same information that you use with Communicator 2005. If you do not know your server or account information or if you cannot connect to the IM system, contact your system administrator.

  1. Do one of the following:

    • If you are signed in, click Menu > Options.

    • If you are not signed in, click Options.

  2. Click General > Server name, and then enter the full address for your Microsoft® Office Live Communications Server. If your Live Communications Server uses a non-standard port, you must include the port number in the server name in <server name>:<port number> format. For example, sip.contoso.com:443. If you do not know the server address, contact your system administrator.

  3. Click Connect using, and then click either TLS to connect by using Transport Layer Security protocol or TCP to connect by using Transport Control Protocol. If you are not sure which connection protocol to use, contact your system administrator.

  4. Click Sign in as, and then click the presence status that you want to display when you sign in.

  5. Optionally, do one or all of the following, depending on your preferences:

    • To automatically start Communicator and sign in whenever you start your mobile device, select Auto connect upon start.

    • To automatically sign in to Communicator whenever the device establishes a connection to a network, select Automatically sign in.

    • To change your presence status to Away whenever your screen is off, select Show me as Away, scroll down, and then click a time interval.

      Note: In order for Communicator Mobile to more accurately detect when to automatically set your presence status to Away or Online, we recommend that you set the Backlight setting to turn off the backlight if the device has not been used for 30 seconds.

  6. When you are finished, click Done, and then configure your account information by following the instructions in Configure your account, beginning with step 2.
