New to Lotus, and need some help understanding how it works?
Posted on 2011-10-03
Can someone give a brief rundown on how Lotus Notes client & server connect to each other?
I don't have much experience with Lotus Notes Email Server, the company I work for acquired a new client with lotus, so I'm trying to understand it better. I can not make heads or tales as far as how the client connects to the server.
For example, The server name is, "emailserver". But when I go to a client PC, check the serves tab in Lotus Notes, all I see is Domino/"TheDomainName".
How is it connecting without referencing the server name? Is it just a service that runs on the network? I see a dos screen when I log onto the serve that seems to be running on that time.
Would there be any repercussions if I changed the IP address of this server?
Any guidance on this would be wonderful. Thanks.
