1 See the "Restrictions for Apple Macintosh Clients" section.


Restrictions for Apple Macintosh Clients

On Mac OS 9.2, Mozilla 1.2.1 is the only supported browser. Sharing a screen from Mac OS 9.2 is not available.

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express does not work with Intel-based Apple Macintosh clients if SSL is enabled on the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express system. In this case, users with Macs cannot join meetings and if a user with a Mac tries to join the meeting, the meeting closes to all users, including non-Mac users.

For Release 2.0.1 only: If the hardware on which your browser is installed is an Intel-based Apple Macintosh, then you cannot share applications in the web meeting room unless you are using the Safari browser in Rosetta mode. This is a known problem with the Intel-based Apple Macintosh and the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express screen sharing plug-in that uses the Adobe Flash Player. See http://www.adobe.com/go/2dda3d81 for information on the workaround.


Note For Release 2.0.1 only: We recommend running in Rosetta mode only if you need to share your screen, and not if you are just watching shared content. Running in Rosetta mode significantly increases your CPU and memory usage, drops performance by more than 50 percent, and puts additional burdens on all system resources. Use Rosetta mode only as a last resort.


Client Software Requirements: Linux

Make sure that Linux user workstations meet the client software requirements in Table 5, or provide these requirements to your users.

Release 2.0.1

Scheduled and Reservationless Video

Segmented Meeting Access (SMA)

Cisco Security Agent (CSA)

Auto Attend

Integration with Cisco Unity Connection

Cannot Upgrade From Cisco Conference Connection to Release 2.x

Scheduled and Reservationless Video

Scheduled and reservationless video adds H.263 and H.264 AVC video compression support to the existing scheduled and reservationless meeting architecture in Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express. Video ports are licensed and managed separately from the existing voice ports.

Supported video endpoints for scheduled and reservationless conferencing include SCCP and H.323 devices including:

Cisco Unified Video Advantage

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7985 video phone

Cisco Unified Personal Communicator

SIP endpoints are also supported. See the "Video Conferencing Endpoint Requirements" section for more information about SIP endpoint restrictions.

Segmented Meeting Access (SMA)

Segmented meeting access, also called SMA, allows the optional deployment of a second server in a DMZ to provide a complete separation between internal and external web meetings. Voice and video meetings will continue to be hosted on a single server behind a corporate firewall. SMA provides a more secure option than doing all web conferencing via service providers.

The purpose of SMA is to divide meetings into separately-accessible segments to improve security and to allow users outside the corporate firewall to access the web collaboration feature of Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express. Only limited access is allowed for users outside a company's firewall. These users connect to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express via the User Web Lite module. The User Web Lite runs on a secondary (external) server that is outside the company firewall. The secondary server communicates with the primary (or internal) server to execute the requested actions. The internal server provides web services that the external server is allowed to use through a secure, remotely forwarded port.

Cisco Security Agent (CSA)

Cisco Security Agent (CSA) security software provides threat protection for server and desktop computing systems, also known as endpoints. The CSA goes beyond conventional endpoint security solutions by identifying and preventing malicious behavior before it can occur, thereby removing potential known and unknown security risks that threaten enterprise networks and applications. Because the CSA analyzes behavior rather than relying on signature matching, its solution provides robust protection with reduced operational costs.

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express Release 2.0 automatically includes the CSA. No installation or configuration is necessary.

Auto Attend

The auto attend feature allows users to call into the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express system and be automatically placed into a meeting. Even if you have no meetings currently scheduled when you call the system, if the system can identify you, it automatically logs you in.


Note By default, this feature is disabled. We recommend that you enable it for all users and groups on your system. From the Administration Center, go to User Configuration > User Group Management. Choose a group and click Edit. On the Edit User Group Details page, scroll to the bottom, and for Auto attend mode, select Auto-Attend Mtg from the drop-down box. Do this for all groups on your system.


The auto attend feature works as follows:

1. A user calls into the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express system.

2. The system reads the phone number that the user called in from, also called the automatic number ID (ANI), and tries to associate it with all the phone numbers entered in all user profiles.

3. If the ANI exactly matches the phone number in a user profile, the system checks to see if the caller is invited to any meetings that are currently in progress. The system does not check continuous meetings.

4. If the caller has been invited to exactly one meeting that is currently in progress, the system puts the caller directly into that meeting.

During this process, the caller is not asked for any input. (The only exception is if the meeting requires a password or if the caller needs to record his name.) Callers hear the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express jingle and greeting prompt when the system answers and then they are automatically placed into the meeting.

If a caller is invited to more than one meeting at this time, the system does not know which meeting the user prefers and only logs the user in to the system. The user can then select the meeting himself.

Integration with Cisco Unity Connection

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express is now integrated with Cisco Unity Connection Release 2.0. This allows mobile users to access meetings using speech commands. For more information about this integration, see the "Cisco Unity Connection Configuration" section of the Configuration and Maintenance Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express Release 2.x and the "Integrating with Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express" chapter of the System Administration Guide for Cisco Unity Connection Release 2.0.

Cannot Upgrade From Cisco Conference Connection to Release 2.x

You cannot upgrade from Cisco Conference Connection to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express Release 2.x. You can only upgrade from Cisco Conference Connection to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express Release 1.x and then upgrade from Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express Release 1.x to Release 2.x.
