IBM® Lotus® Quickr™ runs as a Web application on an IBM Lotus Domino® server and leverages several of the server features.
The following Lotus Domino features are leveraged in Lotus Quickr to provide your organization with the full team collaboration environment:
- Clustering and replication to update and distribute place content among servers.
- Security to control access to places and servers.
- Mail infrastructure to invite members to join places and to notify them of changes.
- Single sign-on (SSO) to enable users to log in to a server without being prompted to log in again during the session.
- Off-Line Services (DOLS) to enable users to take places offline and work while disconnected from the network.
- Domain Search to support searches across multiple places and servers.
- Directory services, an optional user directory configuration that leverages directory services features available through Domino.
In addition, integration with other applications and technologies is available in Lotus Domino. For instance:
- It draws on the capabilities of IBM Lotus Sametime® to provide online awareness and real-time communication.
- It supports the use of the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) to enable connection to an external LDAP-compliant directory for authenticating users and obtaining user and group information.
- It uses Web services technology to enable users to use connectors to manage documents on the server through IBM Lotus Notes®, IBM Lotus Sametime, Lotus Symphony, Microsoft® Windows® Explorer, and Windows Office applications.
Lotus Quickr for Lotus Domino administration involves using a combination of Lotus Domino and Lotus Quickr tools: Domino Administrator client, configuration through the Domino Directory (names.nsf), and notes.ini file on the Domino side, and qptool
commands entered at the server console, the qpconfig.xml configuration file, and the Site Administration
link on the server home page on the Lotus Quickr side.
