My computer seemingly loses its connection to my local Notes server (R5)  When I attempt to goto the Preferences, User Preferences, Ports, and Trace to my local server it pulls a mysterious 1.0.0.4 IP address, thinking that IP is my Notes servers actual IP address.  Obviously it is not correct and thus cannot connect.  But since it connects fine at other certain time im not sure why or where it loses connectiona and where the 1.0.0.4 IP comes from.  I do have a host table with the correct IP address and can correctly PING it from DOS using name resolution.  Help!?! Thanks

Strange, but not unherd of.

If you have DHCP, then it could be that some network appliance ( Router, ISDN box etc ) is giving your machine false information thru DHCP.

Or it could be a router problem somewhere.

In addition - check the address books ( local and server ) to make sure the correct IP is listed.

I hope this helps !
