Consider the following scenario:
  • You sign in to Microsoft Lync 2013 in an environment that has a proxy server deployed.
  • You try to upload a PowerPoint presentation to a conference by using Lync 2013.
  • There are no external DNS resolution and external HTTP connectivity that are through the proxy server.
In this scenario, a proxy authentication dialog box appears unexpectedly.

Note The proxy authentication is not required, and you do not receive a 407 error.
