How to admit all participant automatically in Lync 2010?

How to admit all participant automatically in Lync 2010?
Recently one of our client requested to allow all conference participant admit automatically. Currently he has to manually admit allow each participant to meeting.
What I found while troubleshooting is if you allow user to admit automatically then internal user (part of organization) gets automatically admit however external user has to allow manually.
Here are many option available to do the same.
Manual Admit or denial user:
a.     You can click on Admit All or Deny All.
b.     You can Admit or deny one by one user. 
Automatically Admit users:
1.     Create an online meeting request in Microsoft Outlook.
2.     In the meeting request, in the Online Meeting group, click Meeting Options. 

3.     On Meeting Option page-
4.     Under ‘Permission’ tab you can option to check “A New Meeting space (I control permission)”.
5.     Below ‘These people don’t have to wait in the lobby:
You can select any option per requirement.

Below explanation for each option.

If you don’t want admit manually the select option ‘Anyone (no restriction’). 

Who’s a presenter?
If you want to control the presenter settings then do below: Presenter options control which participants are automatically given presenter privileges.

Click on the drop down button or choose presenters then you will see list of option.

Below explanation for each option.

How to change Meeting Conferencing settings?

By default these many settings available. 

If you want to change above settings then use Lync Server Management Shell:

Set-CsMeetingConfiguration - PstnCallersBypassLobby $false

Set-CsMeetingConfiguration - EnableAssignedConferenceType $false

Set-CsMeetingConfiguration - AdmitAnonymousUsersByDefault $false

Set-CsMeetingConfiguration -AssignedConferenceTypeByDefault $false

Thank you.
