Default Windows Server looking to support Mac clients

Can someone please explain to me how I can get my Windows Server to support Mac clients? People keep telling me about some speex thing but i cannot seem to find anything like that on the downloads.

The server will already be equipped to support the Speex codec, all you need do is switch your server to use that codec instead of its default GSM. Be warned to change a version of Speex that has a sample and bit rate which is roughly the same as that of your current GSM setting to ensure a consistency of voice quality after the change.
If your server is a rented one, you can probably do this change via their control panel or by contacting their customer support.
If you are running the server yourself, then you have to change a setting in the server.ini file to enable speex.

Every server has the potential to be Mac friendly regardless of whom it is rented from - all you need do is change the configuration, not the actual install or anything. True some companies may make it easier than others to enable a codec change but it should be able anywhere. I assume, as part of the Pro license, a host/reseller is not allowed to debunk or disallow any features to a paying customer such as being able to change codec?
