cannot connect to a domino server from lotus notes client.


i have 2 systems in a LAN, on one machine there is Lotus Domino server and on the other lotus notes client.
i installed the client and tried to configure the client to connect to the domino server on the other machine.
i get a error: "The server is not responding. the server may be down or experiencing network problems."
it worked previously but not now. i think there is some problem in startin the server, but i cannot find out what can be problem.
how can i check whether server has started successfully and if not which log files i need to check for problems.
i have also installed a client on same machine where server is, but i am not able to connect to ther database.

i get the following errors in the lotus domino server:

Admin Process: File name: Admin Process: cannot set the target time for processing requests.
Admin Process: Searching Administration requests database.

Make sure the server runs, in the foreground, not as a service. There should be a Domino server console, a DOS-like window, in which you can give commands like
    Show Status
Is the server correctly started? Is the TCP port enabled (see notes.ini)?

Ah, it seems the server is running, and you have a console, for you have some errors in your last post. Well, the first indeed seems an error, but the second one isn't an error at all.
Make sure that the server time is set correctly.

Shut down and restart the Domino Server and watch the DOS - log window for errors or check the Log.nsf for more details.

I hope this helps !

I tried everything other users mentioned and then decided to remove the Notes paths to the Domino server. I went to the Personal Address Book, Advanced, Connections. There I have defined a local lan address which would correspond to Office, and a wan address which would correspond to Internet. Removed the entries and shutdown Notes. Started Notes and re-entered the paths. It worked.
