well, our auditors don't want people to be able to determine that we are running a domino web server.  you can't hide the type and version, though?  do you know why not?

I don't remember .. but if you design a form called $$ReturnGeneralError... With a field called MessageString will give the error msg and you can by pass this with any customized error. Replacce any domino information from the message string and parse it to this field that might work

R6 has an option for this built in.  I think R5 has an undocumented INI parameter, but it has been a while since I looked at it.

It's a notes.ini parameter :

DominoNoBanner=1

for 5.0.2 and higher.

R6 it's indeed an option somewhere, but the notes.ini option may work as well


cheers,

Actually, the DominoNoBanner notes.ini setting is in the help for 6, so it should work.

ok... working this on two fronts.  Lotus support said the DominoNoBanner hides the version, but need to create a custom header through web site rules to hide the server type.

thanks

A new TA has been added to EE: Lotus Domino Admin (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Lotus_Domino_Admin/).

Since it's still rather empty we're looking for content for this TA. This should offer visitors a better chanche of finding answers to their questions.

This question, though not posted in a wrong TA, was a typical Lotus Domino Admin question. Therefore I'm moving it from Lotus Notes/Domino TA to Lotus Domino Admin TA.
