The IBM® Lotus Notes® Traveler configuration settings are part of the Domino® server document. The first time that the Lotus Notes Traveler server is started, it performs any necessary configurations. You might want to perform additional configurations beyond the basics. The following topics describe additional configuration options.
Lotus Notes Traveler server settings
You can configure a variety of Lotus Notes Traveler server settings, including server document settings and notes.ini settings.
Manually configuring the HTTP server
This topic includes a complete list of all Domino HTTP configuration changes required to successfully start and run IBM Lotus Notes Traveler. In general it is not necessary to make any manual configuration changes to the Domino server. However, in some environments the Lotus Notes Traveler server may not have write access to the Domino server document. In this case, add NTS_AUTO_CONFIG=false
to the Notes.ini file to suppress any error messages, and then make the required changes to the server document as specified in this topic.
Tuning performance of the server
This topic describes memory, thread, and ActiveSync timeout considerations for the performance of the IBM Lotus Notes Traveler server.
Configuring ports for a partition
IBM Lotus Notes Traveler supports running on multiple Domino partition servers on the same physical machine. The server must be configured to avoid port conflicts among the partition instances.
Securing the connection
It is recommended that you secure the HTTP traffic to and from the IBM Lotus Notes Traveler server. The traffic can be secured by enabling SSL for the Domino HTTP server or using a VPN.
Customizing the device configuration process for Apple
There is no additional client code that must be installed on an Apple device for it to connect to an IBM Lotus Notes Traveler server. However, you must configure the Microsoft® Exchange account on the device so that it can use ActiveSync to connect to the Lotus Notes Traveler server. Apple devices can be configured either manually or by using profiles. This topic also describes how to customize profiles (also known as .mobileconfig files) to work in your environment.
Configuring corporate look up for devices
The corporate look up feature of Lotus Notes Traveler allows mobile users to search for and find information about other users in the Domino directory. It also allows them to find information using remote directories if directory assistance is configured. This is useful when a user must contact another person in the organization who is not in the contact list of the user.
