                Erratum Type: Typo Pg no: 61

                Previously: TCP is used for gateways that do not support TLS. We might have to change either the gateway listening address or the Lync configuration because most gateways use TCP 5061.

                Correct explanation: TCP port 5060 is mandatory for gateways that do not support TLS. Many gateways support connections on both 5060 and 5061 and if our company decide to use certificates, then we might have to change either the gateway listening address or the Lync configuration to use TCP 5061.
