Microsoft RTMs Communicator Web Access

Microsoft finished development this week on the Web access component of its Office Communicator client.

The release to manufacturing of Office Communicator Web Access brings to the Web browser the capabilities of Office Communicator 2005, the advanced instant messaging client for Microsoft's Live Communications Server 2005.

The Communicator Web Access client is similar to Outlook Web Access. It is designed for users who are away from their corporate desktops. The user connects her browser to a Communicator Web Access site maintained by her employer, enters her credentials and can begin instant messaging and other real-time communications activities from within the browser.

Microsoft is offering Office Communicator Web Access as a free download for customers of Live Communications Server 2005. The 13 MB file is available here.
