Is there any way to assign an alias name to a Domino server that will
connect from a notes client (in 5.0)? I am trying to connect users
over IP from there workstations using a second IP address and Virtual
Server Name. It works fine from a browser, but from the client I get
the TCP error that I'm trying to connect to a server with a different
name. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Two solutions IIRC.

Quick and Dirty Fix:
Stick the IP address and the name in the hosts file on the client
(c:\windows\hosts under windows)

Proper Solution:
Edit the location document in the notes client to include the ip address as a pass through server.

we have this situation here, because or server has an nt name (server29) but also a notes name (dev1/grattan_plc/uk) if you just try and connect to dev1 you get the tried to connect to dev1 but got server29 instead (or is it the other way round?)
Hope this helps,
Sam

If I remember correctly you need to add a connection document to your PNAB which includes the server name and IP-address (or DNS-entry if available).
I use a connection document for every server I connect to, because the notes name and the NT-name are never the same in our setup.
