How to find the IP and Hostname of lotus notes server .

i need to find the IP and Hostname of lotus notes server .

using that IP is that possible to configure scripts to send mail in AIX
1 Solution
I am assuming that you know name of the server.
You can try ping domino name, usually hostname matches domino name
If you have notes client open, check connection documents in the personal address book. Most likely you will find connection document for your Domino server with either hostname or IP address
Sjef BosmanGroupware ConsultantCommented:
Usually, and certainly when you use a DNS, you don't need the IP-address. There should be a much more user-friendly name for the server.

Do you intend to send mail through the Domino Router? In that case you may have to ask the Administrator to allow mails to be relayed via the server. Normally, all mail servers are configured to refuse relay mails.
Kerem ERSOYPresidentCommented:

I guess what you want oto achieve is to find the hostname so that you can send SMTP mail through your server. But if you're using lotus notes you wont need it THe notes server gets the mail from the client and if it sees that it is an SMTP e-mail it sends it through the SMTP server built in it otherwise delivers it as Notes Mail.

So if your client is connected to the server yo don't need to configure it for SMTP delivery.
