Starting with Lotus Notes
® Traveler Companion 2.0.5 and Lotus Notes
Traveler server 18.104.22.168, 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.
These new options are controlled by a setting called NTS_COMPANION_POLICY
that can be added to the notes.ini
on the Lotus Notes
Traveler server. The Lotus Notes
Traveler server must be restarted after these settings are saved to notes.ini
. Note that in order for these settings to be used, the Companion version must be 2.0.5 or higher and the Lotus Notes
Traveler server must be 22.214.171.124 or higher. If any of these settings are present in the server configuration, and an Apple iOS device user has not upgraded their Companion application to at least version 2.0.5 from the Apple App store, then the Lotus Notes
Traveler server will not allow the Companion application to connect to the server. In this case, the old Companion application will fail with an "Unknown error" message. The solution is to have the mobile device user upgrade their Companion application from the App store to the latest available version.
|Notes®.ini setting name ||Values ||Description|
|NTS_COMPANION_POLICY||nountrustedcert ||Prevents the Companion application from connecting to any server using an untrusted or expired SSL certificate. If this setting is present and Companion detects an untrusted or expired SSL certificate, then the Apple device user will receive an error indicating that a connection cannot be made because of an untrusted server. If this setting is not present, then Companion will warn the user that an untrusted server was detected, but it will give the user the choice to cancel or continue with the connection to the Lotus Notes Traveler server. |
Note: This setting only applies to Traveler Companion if it connects to the Lotus Notes Traveler server using an SSL connection. Non-SSL connections are supported, but SSL is highly recommended.
Note: Traveler Companion 2.0.5 now includes a setting on the application menus to Allow invalid certificate. If the nountrustedcert policy has been applied, this setting will be grayed out and cannot be changed by an end user.
|noexport||Prevents attachments within encrypted mail from being printed, or exported to or viewed by any third party application on the Apple device. By setting this policy, only attachments that are viewable using Apple built-in viewers can be opened on the Apple device. If this setting is not present, then attachments can be opened by third party applications installed on the Apple device that support this type of attachment.|
can have multiple values by separating the values with a comma. For example, to include both of the new options, use the following in notes.ini
