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.
This section provides HTTP authentication information.
Configuring the Lotus Notes Traveler High Availability Pool
Configuring Lotus Notes
Traveler to use a High Availability Pool requires special configuration steps.
Setting auto sync options
You can use auto sync options to maximize the battery life of mobile devices.
Tuning performance of the server
This topic describes memory, thread, logging and other considerations for the performance of the IBM Lotus Notes
Traveler server. The information in this section only applies to Derby/Single Server use cases.
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 device 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 reverse proxy, or by using a VPN.
Converting Notes document links to web links
Notes links that are contained in mail messages and viewed on Lotus Notes Traveler clients will now include an additional URL hotspot which points to the web address of the application server. It may be possible to open the linked application using a browser on the mobile device, similar to how applications can be opened using an iNotes application.
Setting the external server URL
There are times when a device needs to connect to a link sent by the server. For example, downloading client files, web page URLs, and Apple encrypted mail retrieval. To make sure that the server sends an appropriate link that the device can use, you must first set the External Server URL field on the Lotus
® Traveler tab in the Server document.
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 user's local contact store.
Lotus Notes Traveler Companion security settings
Starting with Lotus Notes
Traveler Companion 2.0.5 and Lotus Notes
Traveler server 188.8.131.52, there are new security settings available that control how Companion connects to the Lotus Notes
Traveler server and how attachments in encrypted mails can be used on the mobile device.
