Yesterday I installed the RTM bits of WinRM 2.0 on a Windows Server 2003 machine and it were really no issues at all getting it working.
“Error Code: 403 Forbidden. ISA Server is configured to block HTTP requests that require authentication. (12250)”
Since it was a real hassle to figure out these settings I decided to note them here for future references. Since I didn’t find this variant of the Pidgin+SIPE+LCS configuration anywhere else, it may be useful for others too.
While talking to others using Pidgin + LCS I noticed the configuration may differ depending on your setup, i.e. internal only or external LCS / SIP server.
At work we use an internal only LCS server which is only listening on its default TCP port (5060).
Below you can see that I need to enter domain + username in the auth* fields. I know others that don’t use these fields in their setup, but they do have an externally accessible (over TLS/SSL, port 443) LCS / SIP server.
So be prepared, your result may vary :).
- Download Pidgin (v2.5.5 in my case)
- Download SIPE (v1.3.3, libsipe.dll, precompiled dist for Windows)
- Put libsipe.dll in the plugins directory of Pidgin
- Go to Accounts -> Manage Accounts
- Choose Add..
- Enter the following settings.
Protocol = Microsoft LCS/OCS
Username = <your SIP address in Active Directory is your primary e-mail address>
Password = <your Active Directory password>
Use Proxy = Checked
Proxy Server = <the FQDN of your LCS server, i.e. mylcs.corp.local>
Use non-standard port = Checked
Port = 5060
Connection Type = TCP
Auth User = <your Active Directory username>
Auth Domain = <your Active Directory domain name in dotted form, i.e. corp.local>
- Click Save and you should see your LCS contacts appearing in the Buddy List of Pidgin
