® Lotus Notes
® Traveler server can be deployed using several different configurations.
The Lotus Notes
Traveler server is installed and runs on an IBM Lotus
® server. The server must have access to the mail files of mobile Lotus Notes
Traveler users. These mail files are either located on the same server as the Lotus Notes
Traveler server or they are hosted on remote Domino
servers. Lotus Notes
Traveler uses a Lotus Domino
directory to find the home mail server for a Lotus Notes
Traveler user. If the mobile users are not present in the local Domino
directory (names.nsf), then Lotus Domino
directory assistance must be configured so that these users can be found in remote Domino
The Lotus Domino
server that is hosting the Lotus Notes
Traveler service must have the HTTP web server component installed. This component is installed by default when you install your Lotus Domino
service provider configuration is not supported by Lotus Notes
Traveler. Lotus Domino
Service Provider setup does not allow servlets which are required for Lotus Notes
Traveler to function.
For information about the types of network topologies to consider and details about local and remote mail files, see these topics:

Where to place your IBM Lotus Notes
Traveler server in your network depends on the types of devices used and sync types. This section includes a list of possible scenarios and why one might be selected over another.
Remote and local mail file considerations
IBM Lotus Notes
Traveler user mail databases do not need to reside on the same Domino
server as the Lotus Notes
Traveler service. In a remote configuration, the Lotus Notes
Traveler service looks up the Lotus Notes
Traveler mail server name and file name of the user from the local names.nsf and remotely connects to that mail server when needed.
Supporting multiple Lotus Domino domains
Typically, the Lotus Notes
Traveler server deploys in the same Domino
domain as production mail servers. However, there are a number of reasons why you may want to separate your Lotus
Traveler server domain and your production mail server domains.
