Set Advanced Connection options in Skype for Business

The Advanced Connection Settings dialog box is where you can modify the settings that tell Skype for Business how to connect to the Skype for Business servers.

Important:  Normally, you do not need change your Skype for Business sign-in settings. Don’t choose manual configuration unless your support team tells you to and provides detailed guidance on the correct values to use.

  1. In the Skype for Business main window, click Options The Options button in Skype for Business > Personal.

  2. Under My account, select Advanced.

  3. In the Advanced Connection Settings dialog box, select one of the two methods:

    • Automatic configuration    Choose this to let Skype for Business Server automatically configure your connection settings.

    • Manual configuration    Again, only choose this if you've been told to by your support team—and only if they've given you the server names you will need to supply.

      • Internal server name    Type the FQDN (fully qualified domain name) of your Skype for Business Server.

      • External server name    Type the FQDN (fully qualified domain name) of your Skype for Business Server or Edge Server.
