Notes R5 Server

I recently installed the Notes R5 server on my home pc and I am having difficulties getting my existing R5 client to communicate with it. I have updated the location document in the client to specify the server, yet each time I bring up the client (server already started) I get a message indicating there is no path to the server. What am I missing and how do I get the client to recognize the server (or the server to recognize the client)? Bob

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The location document might not be enough. Try one of these two methods:

1) Define a CONNECTION Document pointing to the server’s name and IP address in your Local Name and Address Book. It’s in the same section as the location document.

2) Place an entry for the server (IP and Name) in your local HOSTS file. If it is Windows NT, 2000, or Win XP you should find the file without an extension (like .txt or anything) in your WinNT/System32/Drivers/Etc directory. You will want to open with Notepad or WordPad and just enter the server at the bottom like this example:

10.0.3.100 YourServerName

Do that (one or the other) and you should be able to reach the server from your client.

Good luck.
