You cannot share an application in a meeting by using Lync Web App after you install update 2670534

Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You have a Microsoft Lync Server 2010 environment that has applied the updates that are mentioned in Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) article 2670534.

  • You join a meeting by using Lync Web App.

  • You try to share an application in the meeting.

In this scenario, you cannot share the application. Additionally, you do not receive an error message.

Note If this is the first time that you have shared an application in the meeting, you are prompted to install or update the Lync Web App plug-in.

Cause

This issue occurs because the Lync Web App plug-in handles the media relay host name incorrectly. When you try to share the application, the media relay host name in the Media Relay Authentication Service (MRAS) response is returned to the Lync Web App plug-in instead of the media relay address. However, the Lync Web App plug-in ignores the host name because it can only recognize an IP address. Therefore, the following message is missing from the INVITE request:

a=candidate:<candidate> 1 <TCP Passive/Active> <packet size><IP address and port> type relay raddr <relay IP address and port>

Note When you try to share an application, the MRAS response is returned to the Lync Web App Plug-in.
