Update: Controlling File Transfer from the Lync Edge with MSPL Combined with June Updates

I have written about the ability to control file transfer from the Lync Edge for federated users using MSPL but with the CU 6 update there are some new features. So in addition to being able to select the domains you want to block there is now the ability to block file transfers altogether, URL’s and specific files over the Lync Edge.

  • To block URL style links:

    New-CsImFilterconfiguration -Identity EdgePoolIdentity -BlockFileExtension $True -Action Block -Enabled $True

 

  • To block the transfer of files with common extensions:

    New-CsFileTransferFilterConfiguration -Identity EdgePoolIdentity -BlockFileExtension $True -Action Block -Enabled $True

 

  • To block the transfer of all files:

    New-CsFileTransferFilterConfiguration -Identity EdgePoolIdentity -BlockFileExtension $True -Action BlockAll -Enabled $True

This is a great enhancement to controlling the Lync Edge.

  1. This command:

    New-CsFileTransferFilterConfiguration -Identity EdgePoolIdentity -BlockFileExtension $True -Action BlockAll -Enabled $True

    blocks file transfer for Internal users as well as Edge users. In other words, ALL file transfer. It does NOT block just Edge file transfer.

    Anyone know how to block ALL Edge file transfer but continue to allow internal transfers?
