We have some network segments where access to the internet is only through MWG. Clients are Win7 and use a proxy.pac file. Lync 2010 does not appear to be respecting the proxy settings for one piece of the sign in. All other traffic is being routed through the proxy.
Does anyone have fully isolated clients using Lync 2010 desktop and have this working?

McAfee can't give us a definitive this is how you do it, they are providing more of what I would say is guidance based on packet captures and rule traces. MS is stumped and says it should work. Do we really have to poke a hole in our network to get Lync 2010 clients to talk to Office 365?
Any help is appreciated.
