IBM Sametime Proxy Server 8.5.2 - Integration with IBM Connections and WebSphere Portal 7.0.02

This came into my inbox today: -

A fix is available on IBM Fix Central that provides support for IBM Sametime integration into IBM Connections and IBM WebSphere Portal using the Sametime Proxy Server 8.5.2 Interim Feature Release 1 (IFR 1). This fix also brings a number of enhancements and problem resolutions to the mobile Sametime client (both iOS and Android).

This fix provides the following enhancements to IBM Sametime Proxy Server 8.5.2 Interim Feature Release 1 (IFR 1):

Support for IBM Connections

With this fix installed, it is possible to integrate Connections with Sametime 8.5.2 IFR 1.

Support for IBM WebSphere Portal

With this fix installed, it is possible to integrate Portal with Sametime 8.5.2 IFR 1. Note that this integration is possible only when using the new Page Builder theme.

IBM Sametime native mobile (iOS and Android) clients improvements

With this fix installed, the user experience for users of the mobile native Sametime clients has been improved in the following ways:

• If a picture cannot be sent to an iOS Sametime native client user, then an error message is now displayed to the sender.
• An issue where the sender of a message to an iOS Sametime native client showed as question marks (?) in the notification has been resolved.
• The notification that a chat partner is a mobile native client user has now been made optional. Refer to the "Additional instructions" section below for steps to enable this notification.

The Technote with download and installation information is here.

If the two client windows are different client types, you might need to modify the VP_PREFERED_LOGIN_TYPES parameter on the Community serves.

This sametime.ini parameter tells the server which client type should take precedence.

Can you also open a PMR, incase its something different, but an easy fix for support to help you with.
