I am a (soon to be) Notes administrator; at least I hope to be so. The program looks good, and I've started to learn a few basics.
But I have a major problem which I'm sure is very easy to solve. I'm not able to connect to the server. Either something isn't configured properly or something isn't spelled correctly.
When I'm configuring a Notes client at startup, I'm choosing "Network connection" and I get up a dialog box where to put the user name and the mail server name. The network type is TCP/IP. I have tried to write "everything" in these two fields and checked the server document on the server, but I am not able to connect.
The reason why I think this is easy to solve, is that when I fill in the two fields, I get an error message after a while and I click "OK" . I'm then asked to fill inn data about a secondary Notes-server, and when I click on "OK" here, I get a message indicating that the client have been in contact with the server!
Any solution or tip? Things to check for at the server side? The software package I have is Lotus Intranet Starter pack with Notes 4.5.
PS: I've checked the LAN-connection and is pinging the server both by name and IP-address.
