Starting Essential Services

Start the following Cisco Unified Presence Extensible Communication Platform (XCP) services on all Cisco Unified Presence nodes in all clusters:

  • Cisco Unified Presence XCP Authentication Service
  • Cisco Unified Presence XCP Connection Manager

You may also start these Unified Presence XCP services on all Unified Presence nodes in all clusters, depending on what features you want to make available:

  • Cisco Unified Presence XCP Text Conference Manager, for group chat
  • Cisco Unified Presence XCP SIP Federation Connection Manager, to support federation services with third-party applications that use SIP
  • Cisco Unified Presence XCP XMPP Federation Connection Manager, to support federation services with third-party applications that use XMPP
  • Cisco Unified Presence XCP Counter Aggregator, if you want system administrators to be able to view statistical data on XMPP components
  • Cisco Unified Presence XCP Message Archiver, for automatic archiving of all instant messages

Note


Read the documentation for any feature that you are setting up before you turn on the related services. Additional work might be required.


Firewall Requirements

Configure hardware firewalls to allow the ports to carry traffic for the application. Hardware firewalls are network devices that provide protection from unwanted traffic at an organizational level. This table lists the ports required for the deployments of Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Unified Presence. These ports must be open on all firewalls for the application to function properly.

Port Protocol Description
Inbound
16384-32766 UDP Receives Real-Time Transport Protocol (RTP) media streams for video and audio. You set up these ports in Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
Outbound
69, then Ephemeral TFTP Connects to the Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) server to download the TFTP file
80 and 6970 HTTP Connects to services such as Cisco WebEx Messenger for meetings and Cisco Unity Connection for voicemail features

If no port is specified in a TFTP server address, Cisco Jabber Video for iPad will try port 6970 to obtain phone setup files and dial rule files.

5060 UDP/TCP Provides Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) call signaling
5061 TCP Provides secure SIP call signaling
8443 TCP Connects to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager IP Phone (CCMCIP) server to get a list of currently assigned devices
16384-32766 UDP UDP Sends RTP media streams for video and audio

Select Cisco Unified Presence Administration > Application > Client Types from the Cisco Unified Presence menu and ensure JABBERIPAD is included. Refer to the workaround list in caveat CSCtq15767 if this option is not available.

Setting Up LDAP Servers

Perform this task in Cisco Unified Presence.

Before You Begin

Do the following:

  • Set up the LDAP attribute map
  • Obtain the hostnames or IP addresses of the LDAP directories
Procedure
    Step 1   Select Cisco Unified Presence Administration > Application > Cisco Unified Personal Communicator > LDAP Server.
    Note   

    LDAP server configuration is done in Cisco Unified Communications Manager starting with Release 9.0.

    Step 2   Select Add New.
    Step 3   Enter the LDAP server name.
    Step 4   Enter an IP address or an FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) of the LDAP server.
    Step 5   Specify the port number used by the LDAP server. The defaults are:
    • TCP—389
    • TLS—636

    Check the LDAP directory documentation or the LDAP directory configuration for this information.

    Step 6   Select TCP or TLS for the protocol type.
    Step 7   Select Save.

    Creating LDAP Profiles and Adding Users

    Cisco Jabber Video for iPad connects to an LDAP server on a per-search basis. If the connection to the primary server fails, the application attempts the first backup LDAP server, and if it is not available, it then attempts to connect to the second backup server. The application also periodically attempts to return to the primary LDAP server. If an LDAP query is in process when the system fails over, the next available server completes this LDAP query.

    Before You Begin

    Do the following:

    • Specify the LDAP server names and addresses
    • You must create the LDAP profile before you can add Cisco Jabber Video for iPad users to the profile.
    Procedure
      Step 1   Select Cisco Unified Presence Administration > Application > Cisco Unified Personal Communicator > LDAP Profile.
      Note   

      LDAP profile configuration is done in Cisco Unified Communications Manager starting with Release 9.0.

      Step 2   Select Add New.
      Step 3   Enter information in the fields.
      Field Setting
      Name Enter the profile name limited to 128 characters.
      Description Optional. Enter a description limited to 128 characters.
      Bind Distinguished Name

      Optional. Enter the administrator-level account information limited to 128 characters. This is the distinguished name with which you bind for authenticated bind.

      The syntax for this field depends on the type of LDAP server that you deploy. For details, see the LDAP server documentation.

      Anonymous Bind Optional. Uncheck this option to use the user credentials to sign in to this LDAP server.

      For non-anonymous bind operations, Cisco Jabber Video for iPad receives one set of credentials. If configured, these credentials must be valid on the backup LDAP servers.

      Note   

      If you check Anonymous Bind, users can sign in anonymously to the LDAP server with read-only access. Anonymous access might be possible on your directory server, but Cisco does not recommend it. Instead, create a user with read-only privileges on the same directory where the users to be searched are located. Specify the directory number and password in Cisco Unified Presence for the application to use.

      Password Optional. Enter the LDAP bind password limited to 128 characters. This is the password for the administrator-level account that you provided in the Bind Distinguished Name string to allow users to access this LDAP server.
      Confirm Password Reenter the password you entered in Password.
      Search Context Optional. Enter the location where you set up all the LDAP users. This location is a container or directory. The name is limited to 256 characters. Use only a single OU/LDAP search context.
      Recursive Search Optional. Check to perform a recursive search of the directory starting at the search base.
      Primary LDAP Server and Backup LDAP Server Select the primary LDAP server and optional backup servers.
      Add Users to Profile Select the button to open the Find and List Users window. Select Find to populate the search results fields. Alternatively, search for a specific user and select Find. To add users to this profile, select the users, and select Add Selected.
      Step 4   Select Save.

      Setting Up the LDAP Attribute Map

      Before You Begin

      Set up the LDAP attribute map on Cisco Unified Presence where you enter LDAP attributes for your environment and map them to the given Cisco Jabber Video for iPad attributes.

      If you want to use LDAP to store your employee profile photos, use a third-party extension to upload the photo files to the LDAP server or extend the LDAP directory server schema by other means to create an attribute that the LDAP server can associate with an image.

      For Cisco Jabber Video for iPad to display profile photos, in the LDAP attribute map, map the "Photo" value to the appropriate LDAP attribute.


      Note


      • Contact photos may be cropped when they are displayed in Cisco Jabber Video for iPad.
      • The UPC UserID setting in the LDAP attribute map must match the Cisco Unified Communications Manager user ID. This mapping allows a user to add a contact from LDAP to the contact list in Cisco Jabber Video for iPad. This field associates the LDAP user with the corresponding user on Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Unified Presence.
      • You can map an LDAP field to only one field.

      Procedure
        Step 1   Select Cisco Unified Presence Administration > Application > Cisco Unified Personal Communicator > Settings.

        Select Cisco Unified CM IM and Presence > Application > Legacy Clients > Settings if you are using Release 9.0.

        Step 2   Select a supported LDAP server from Directory Server Type.

        The LDAP server populates the LDAP attribute map with Cisco Jabber user fields and LDAP user fields.

        Step 3   If necessary, make modifications to the LDAP field to match your specific LDAP directory.

        The values are common to all LDAP server hosts. Note the following LDAP directory product mappings:

        Product LastName Mapping UserID Mapping
        Microsoft Active Directory SN sAMAccountName
        OpenLDAP SN uid
        Step 4   Select Save.
        Tip   

        If you want to stop using the current attribute mappings and use the factory default settings, select Restore Defaults.


        Indexing Active Directory Attributes

        Index these Active Directory attributes:

        • sAMAccountName
        • displayName
        • mail
        • msRTCSIP-PrimaryUserAddress

        In addition, index any attributes that are used for contact resolution. For example, you might need to index these attributes:

        • telephoneNumber
        • Any other directory phone number attributes that are used to find contacts, depending on the value of the DisableSecondaryNumberLookups key
        • ipPhone, if this attribute is used in your environment

        Turning IM Policy On or Off

        This procedure describes how to turn on or off IM features for all IM applications in a Cisco Unified Presence cluster. IM features are turned on by default in Cisco Unified Presence.


        Caution


        If you turn off IM features in Cisco Unified Presence, all group chat functionality (ad hoc and persistent chat) will not work in Cisco Unified Presence. Cisco recommends that you do not turn on the Cisco UP XCP Text Conference service or set up an external database for persistent chat in Cisco Unified Presence.


        Procedure
          Step 1   Select Cisco Unified Presence Administration > Messaging > Settings.
          Step 2   Select Enable instant messaging.
          Note   
          • If you turn on this setting, users can send and receive IMs.
          • If you turn off this setting, users cannot send or receive IMs. Users can use IM only for availability and phone operations.
          Step 3   Select Save.
          Step 4   Restart the Cisco UP XCP Router service.

          Specifying IM Policy Settings

          You can specify IM policy settings by following these steps.

          Procedure
            Step 1   Select Cisco Unified Presence Administration > Presence > Settings.
            Step 2   Turn on or off automatic authorization for viewing availability.
            If you want to… Do this…
            Turn on automatic authorization so that Unified Presence automatically authorizes all availability subscription requests it receives from users in the local enterprise Check Allow users to view the availability of other users without being prompted for approval.
            Turn off automatic authorization so that Unified Presence sends all availability subscriptions to where the user is prompted to authorize or reject the subscription Uncheck Allow users to view the availability of other users without being prompted for approval.
            Step 3   Select Cisco Unified Presence Administration > Messaging > Settings.
            Step 4   Turn on or off these global settings:
            If you want to… Do this…
            Globally turn off instant messaging services Uncheck Enable instant messaging.
            Globally turn on offline instant messaging Uncheck Suppress Offline Instant Messaging.
            Step 5   Select Save.
            Step 6   Restart the Cisco UP XCP Router service.

            Setting Up URL Strings to Fetch Contact Pictures from Web Server

            You can set up a parameterized URL string in the Photo field in the LDAP attribute map so that Cisco Jabber Video for iPad can fetch pictures from a web server instead of from the LDAP server. The URL string must contain an LDAP attribute with a query value containing a piece of data that uniquely identifies the photo of the user. Cisco recommends that you use the User ID attribute. However, you can use any LDAP attribute whose query value contains a piece of data that uniquely identifies the photo of the user.

            Cisco recommends that you use %%<userID>%% as the substitution string. For example:

            • http://mycompany.example.com/photo/std/%%uid%%.jpg
            • http://mycompany.example.com/photo/std/%%sAMAccountName%%.jpg

            You must include the double percent symbols in this string, and they must enclose the name of the LDAP attribute to substitute. Cisco Jabber Video for iPad removes the percent symbols and replaces the parameter inside with the results of an LDAP query for the user whose photo it resolves.

            For example, if a query result contains the attribute "uid" with a value of "johndoe," then a template such as http://mycompany.com/photos/%%uid%%.jpg creates the URL http://mycompany.com/photos/johndoe.jpg. Cisco Jabber Video for iPad attempts to fetch the photo.

            This substitution technique works only if Cisco Jabber Video for iPad can use the results of the query and can insert it into the template you specify above to construct a working URL that fetches a JPG photo. If the web server that hosts the photos in a company requires a POST (for example, the name of the user is not in the URL) or uses some other cookie name for the photo instead of the username, this technique does not work.


            Note


            • Limit a URL length to 50 characters.
            • Cisco Jabber Video for iPad does not support authentication for this query; the photo must be retrievable from the web server without credentials.

            Setting Up CCMCIP Profile

            Procedure
              Step 1   Select Cisco Unified Presence Administration > Application > Cisco Unified Personal Communicator > CCMCIP Profile.

              Select Cisco Unified CM IM and Presence > Application > Legacy Clients > CCMCIP Profile if you are using Release 9.0.

              Step 2   Search for the CCMCIP profile in the Find and List CCMCIP Profiles window.

              If the CCMCIP profile is found, no further action is required from you.

              Step 3   If the CCMCIP profile is not found, select Add New.
              Step 4   Enter the following information into the fields.
              Field Setting
              Name Enter the profile name.
              Description Enter a profile description.
              Primary CCMCIP Host and Backup CCMCIP Host Select a primary server and a backup server.
              Make this the Default CCMCIP Profile for the System

              Check this option if you want any new users that are added to the system to be placed automatically into this default profile.

              Users who are already synchronized to Unified Presence from Unified Communications Manager are not added to the default profile. However, once the default profile is created, any users synchronized after that are added to the default profile.

              Step 5   Select Add Users to Profile.
              Step 6   Use the Find and List Users window to find and select users.
              Step 7   Select Add Selected to add users to the profile.
