Skype for Business – Network password required to connect

Most enterprises use a corporate proxy to control Internet access for an organisation. Skype for Business makes connections to the Internet to display the tips on start up and this can cause the dreaded error message displayed above and a lot for help desk calls.

So this is how we can stop this from happening

Whitelist the following URS for unauthenticated access





Then we can add the following reg keys via group policy or res workspace depending on the environment.

We then need to create some reg keys.

Open Regedit and go to location HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Lync 
Create new Dword name “IsBasicTutorialSeenByUser” with value:1 
Create new Dword name TutorialFeatureEnabled with value:0
