Provide your users with the following steps to run IBM Sametime on the iPhone device.
Before you begin
The Sametime iPhone web client runs within a client's browser session, and is hosted on a Sametime Proxy server. For more information on installing the Sametime Proxy Server, see Installing a Sametime Proxy Server
under the Security section.
- Start the Safari browser.
- Go to the Sametime login page by entering the following URL, replacing serverhostname.domain:port with the fully qualified domain name and port of the Sametime Proxy Server.
The default value for port is 9080 or 9043 if SSL has been deployed.
Loading Sametime the first time takes a little longer than usual, depending on your connection speed. Subsequent loads of Sametime will be faster, since much of the Sametime application is stored locally on the device after that first load.
- Now add a Sametime icon to your desktop, which allows you to start Sametime from the home screen. From the Sametime login page, select Add to Home Screen on the Safari menu , then click Add in the upper right of the screen.
