TsooRad is a blog for John Weber. John is a Skype for Business MVP (2015-2016) - before that, a Lync Server MVP (2010-2014). My day job is titled "Technical Lead, MS UC" - I work with an awesome group of people at CDW, LLC. I’ve been at this gig in one fashion or another since 1988 - starting with desktops (remember Z-248’s?) and now I am in Portland, Oregon. I focus on collaboration and infrastructure. This means Exchange of all flavors, Skype, LCS/OCS/Lync, Windows, business process, and learning new stuff. I have a variety of interests - some of which may rear their ugly head in this forum. I have a variety of certifications dating back to Novell CNE and working up through the Microsoft MCP stack to MCITP multiple times. FWIW, I am on my third career - ex-USMC, retired US Army. I have a fancy MBA. One of these days, I intend to start teaching. The opinions expressed on this blog are mine and mine alone.

Kemp HLB as Reverse Proxy

Interested in using content redirects and Kemp to provide Reverse Proxy services on the minimum amount of IP addresses?

I have been using this as a reference:  http://michaelvh.wordpress.com/2014/01/03/publishing-multiple-services-to-the-internet-on-a-single-ip-address-using-a-kemp-load-balancer-and-content-switching-rules/.  Written by Exchange MVP Michael Van Horenbeeck, this article lays out what is needed to get Lync and Exchange operating on a single IP.

Up on NextHop, as of 14 February 2014, we also have this:  http://blogs.technet.com/b/nexthop/archive/2014/02/14/configuring-reverse-proxy-access-to-microsoft-lync-server-2013-using-kemp-loadmaster.aspx

Of note in the NextHop article is the little blurb at the top mentioning the certification process – nothing like having a reference to the OIP to make customers happy!  Also, the official Kemp configuration guidance for Lync 2013 is referenced in case you have a hard time finding that piece of arcana.  “If you need details steps or would like to manually create these services, you can refer to detailed instructions provided in “LoadMaster Deployment Guide for Microsoft Lync 2013” located here: http://kemptechnologies.com/files/downloads/documentation/7.0/Deployment_Guides/Deployment_Guide-Lync_2013.pdf

YMMV
