MeetingPlace and WebEx SSO

So I am about to embark on getting MeetingPlace with WebEx integratation with single sign on.

Does the WebEx site need direct access to my MeetingPlace application server? If it does, do I need to stick it in the DMZ? Does anyone use any other solutions?

I've always thought MP has never really been designed/hardened to be sitting in a DMZ, but the WebEx SSO configuration seems to require the FQDN to MeetingPlace and the SSO configuration section has login URLs to it.

MeetingPlace and WebEx SSO

There is a secure link (TSP) between the WebEx cloud and the MP Application Server that provides for this connection.  There is no need to have your Application Server in the DMZ as it works properly with MP behind the corporate firewall.  The only issue is most proxies are not supported though I have not found this to be a problem.  To log into WebEx as a user the user is automatically redirected to the Application Server sign-on screen.  This requires the user to be on the corporate network. The sign-on is only required when scheduling or join a meeting as the host.

Hope this helps.

Re: MeetingPlace and WebEx SSO

Hi Mark.

First the SRND:

An example:

I have had build a site where the application server was insite, and WebEx node in DMZ.

But in MP8.5 Cisco recoment not to use WebEx node for new deployment.

You have no connections into your site, but unly out.

A nice litle drawing from MP7

Hope it will help you a litle bit

Re: MeetingPlace and WebEx SSO

Thanks you to you both, that's helpful.

While using an MCS WebEx Node is not recommended, is it still possible with 8.5?

There is an attraction to using an in house WebEx node for internal meetings, but we certainly don't have plans to go out and buy an ASR just to complete this...


Re: MeetingPlace and WebEx SSO


Yes you can deploy the WebEx Node in 8.5.  I have deployed a couple of deployments using MP 8.5 with the WebEx Node version 8.5.  Works fine.

Re: MeetingPlace and WebEx SSO


Our domain is like myenterprise.local


meeting place = mp1.myenterprise.local

Webex Node = webexnode1.myenterprise.local

Then webex form asking me the FQDN ( )

We know that internal domain (myenterprise.local) is not reachable from Internet. So there is no problem? Are you sure?

So I can fill the webexnode FQDN as webexnode1.myenterprise.local? Or do I need to place it in the DMZ, or confirguring a NAT/PAT.
