Lotus Notes "Thin client"

Hi All,

I was just wondering if many people had experience with providing Lotus Notes to non Notes users via a thin client of some sort.  We basically have contractors who do not have Lotus Notes but need to be able to contribute to a variety of applications.  I have set them up so they are all available via the Web, but I have heard that a thin client is available which is much more powerful and even allows local replication?

Any information would be fantastic.

Thanks.

That's iNotes  - it has a feature called DOLS (Domino Offline something Services), where you can download your mailfile, work locally and replicate changes back to the server.  It works - but not perfectly....
You can also use iNotes for Outlook - use Outlook as a client for Notes.  Never used that myself....

iNotes is only a mail 'client', so it's not yet a full thin client.  There is something underway (a thin client with more options), but we won't see that until early 2005....

cheers,

Tom

DOLS, as mentioned, supports this.  However, it is really almost the same as the wbe browsing experience, and only useful if you need your contractors to be able to take access "off line."  The app UI is the same as a web browser -- in fact, that's all the "thin client" is.  It provides the Notes API, a replicator, and the Domino HTTP tranlation/web engine.

So, what do you gain?

The only other thing DOSL does is that it synchronizes ACL settings by bringing in whatever groups are needed from your public NAB, so that the user gets the same access offline as online.
