Skype For Business Signing In Issue....

Just installed Skype For Business standard on a VM. Im running another VM that is the DC. i went through the steps and done it about 5 times and still the client pcs are unable to sign into Skype for Business. It keeps saying Contacting Server and Signing in. the client is able to ping the server. I have no idea where to go from here. any help would be greatly appericated. oh btw im running Windows Server 2012 also.

Hi EB,
sounds more like a permissions or shares issue from/on the CLIENT side, they need to be updated to.

Skype in general had login issues 3 days ago. I wanted to skype with my mother in law, but for some strange reason i just wasn't able to sign in. I read in the paper that the signing in issue started last week. Hope it wasn't inconviniencing
