2.3.1 Connecting to a Domino server
New users of IBM Workplace Managed Client and the Notes plug-in have to connect to a Lotus Domino server first to get access to their mail file and the associated databases. This procedure is similar to the first access of a Domino server after installing a new Notes client.
Lotus Notes users must know the name and the TCP/IP address of their Domino server and their password or their personal Notes ID file, depending on the policy on the server.
To connect to a Domino server, perform the following steps:
Figure 2-10 The plug-in starts for the first time with the connection setup wizard
Figure 2-11 Enter your name and the name of your Domino server
Figure 2-12 Location of your personal Notes ID file
Figure 2-13 Notes plug-in prompts for your password
Now, the standard setup is complete. You can add more connections to other types of services or set up a replication schedule that fits your needs before starting up the application. Figure 2-14 and Figure 2-15 show the replication settings. Setting up a replication schedule is useful for Notes databases.

A detailed replication scheme can be entered in the same way. Figure 2-16 shows how a Notes client does this.

Now the setup is complete. Before entering the application, the message shown in Figure 2-17 opens.
