Use the instructions in this section to manage connectivity, community services, anonymous access, and business cards on the Sametime Community Server.
Managing administrator access and roles
Manage administrator access and roles using the Sametime
® Administration Tool.
Managing trusted IP addresses
Whenever you install a server that communicates with a community server, you must add the new server's IP address to the community server's settings.
Managing community services
Community services settings support all online presence (or awareness), instant messaging, and chat features at a server-wide level. These settings supersede any feature settings that you set at the policy level for users or groups. Community services settings carry a greater weight.
Managing anonymous access to virtual places
Software Development Kit provides developers with the capability to build applications that create virtual places. Anonymous users can enter a virtual place and have awareness of other users in the same virtual place.
Sending a message to all users
Use the Sametime
Administration Tool to simultaneously send a single message to all users currently logged in to Community Services from any Sametime client.
Managing business cards

Sametime Community Server so that business card information about an individual displays when a user hovers over a name in a chat window or a contact list.
Changing user names

, you can change their names if their user IDs must change due to a name or location change.
