Release notes for the Meeting Connector

Last Updated:

Zoom has recently made several important security updates to its on-prem products, including adding support for the automated issuance of TLS certificates. If you have not configured a certificate by November 30, 2022, Zoom may configure a certificate on your behalf. However, even if you have a configured certificate, you may still have to configure your network/firewall as later this year Zoom clients will connect using an FQDN (*.zoomonprem.com) instead of an IP address.

Details about upcoming releases will be posted as they become available.
