Parent topic: Managing client types and logins
- Open a text editor on the Sametime Community Server.
- Open the sametime.ini file located in the Sametime Community Server installation directory. For example, the default directory in Windows® is C:\program files\lotus\domino.
- In the Config section, enter the client type IDs for the allowed client types in the VPS_ALLOWED_LOGIN_TYPES flag. If the flag is not specified or its value is empty, then all client types are allowed to connect to the server. Its a comma-separated list.
Once the VPS_ALLOWED_LOGIN_TYPES
flag is used, you must update the values whenever you add new client types; otherwise the new client type cannot log in.
