Adding IBM Notes Traveler to an IBM i Domino serverAdded by IBM on July 29, 2013 | Version 1 (Original)
|There are several steps to setting up a IBM® Notes® Traveler server to run on IBM i.
Follow the following procedure to set up the IBM Notes
- Sign on to the system with a user profile that has *ALLOBJ, *IOSYSCFG, and *SECADM authority.
- Stop the IBM Domino server.
- On any IBM i command line, type the command ADDNTSDOM and press F4.
- In the Domino® server name field, type the name of the Domino server where you will add IBM Notes Traveler.
- In the External Access URL field, specify the complete URL, including https://, the server name, the port number (if not the default), and the servlet path (/traveler) that the device uses to get to the server. This can be a proxy or redirected address and is used by the server so that links are correctly formatted for the device to get to the server in the same way it does for syncing. This is also in the server document and is overridden by notes.ini if specified. There are two valid values for this field:
Press F10 for additional parameters, then complete the following fields:
- *BLANK: Default value
- Character-value: Specify an effective URL that devices can access
Table 1. Setup Parameters
Press Enter to run the command.
|Traveler HOST IP address ||Specifies the IP address of the HOST on which IBM Notes Traveler is running. It must be in the form nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn, where nnn is a decimal number between 0 and 255; for example, 126.96.36.199. |
An IPv4 address is not valid if it has a value of all binary ones or all binary zeros for the network identifier (ID) portion or the host ID portion of the address. This property can be used to override the selection if the wrong IP address is chosen. This could happen if the server has multiple active network interfaces and it is desirable for the server to use an interface other than the one that was selected. The following list contains the values for this field:
- *FIRSTACTIVE: The IP address of the first active network interface. This is default value.
- character-value: Specify the IP address that the IBM Notes Traveler server will use.
|Traveler server port ||Specifies the interprocess socket connection used between the Notes Travel server and its HTTP server servlet. It is also used for inter-server communication between servers in a high availability (HA) pool. This is the port the IBM Notes Traveler server accesses for incoming requests from the web servlet or commands from other servers. Add this Notes.ini setting to override the default port number. Values for this field are:
- 50125: The default port.
- 1-65535: Specify the port on which the Traveler server will be listening.
|Traveler servlet port ||Specifies the interprocess socket connection used between the Notes Travel server and its HTTP server servlet. This is the servlet listening port number. Add this Notes.ini setting to override the default port number. Values for this field are:
- 50126: The default port.
- 1-65535: Specify the port on which the IBM Notes Traveler servlet will be listening.
|Traveler push port||Specifies the TCP port used for Auto Sync communications between version 8.5.1 and earlier IBM Notes Traveler servers and clients. If you are using an 8.5.2 version or later client, this port is not used and can be disabled. If you are using a version earlier than 8.5.2, this port must not be used by other applications on this server. If the IBM Notes Traveler server is behind a firewall, this port must be open on the firewall or the IBM Notes Traveler client must use a VPN to tunnel through the external firewalls. To disable the Auto Sync TCP port, set the port value to 0. If this server is configured for High Availability, the Auto Sync TCP port should be disabled as this is not a supported option in this mode. Values for this field are:
- 8642: The default port.
- 0-65535: Specify the port that the IBM Notes Traveler push service will use. Use a value of zero to disable this service.
When IBM Notes
Traveler is added to the Domino
server, you will see the message "Command ADDNTSDOM ended successfully"
on the console screen.
You can set up multiple IBM Notes
Traveler servers on one IBM
i system, with the following requirements:
Parent topic: Installing IBM Notes Traveler on IBM i
- Multiple existing Domino server instances exist on the systems.
- Multiple instances of IBM Notes Traveler must use different network addresses or different ports on the same address. See the preceding table for more information.
