The servers have presence/chat awareness of each other, yes. I think that is what you mean.

However, there are 3 different SSC's, and so, I gather, 3 different "cells" (sorry 'cell' is a new term for me in ST context, so I'm not sure I am using it correctly... I take it to mean....errrr...ummm.... the management scope of and that right?)..... since there are 3 SSC, I am not sure it is possible for use SSO, but so far in the limited testing I've done it does at least _seem_ to work with http/https auth (using manual user email address and internet password field from domino directory)

Three servers....why.... yes... <sigh> politics... history... territory... I'm sure you get the picture, so while difficult and sub-optimal to have 3 environments and try to connect them.....probably still easier than the alternative political/mindset shift..... It might...might be possible to get them consolidates to 1 single SSC... but there are multiple domino domains and ST community servers involved...servicing different user bases... is that even possible?

Again, thank you so much for taking your time to answer my mass of questions. You are really helping these ideas gel in my head.... I think I had it kinda sorta right... but I had so many "if this works the way I think" caveats chained together it felt like I was building a house of cards.
