You will need to save your user.id file on a disk. Go to the other computer and log in using your username (ID) by selecting File, Security and then Switch ID. Browse to select the user.id file on your disk and click Open. You will be prompted to enter your password.
Your user.id file can be found in the c:\Program Files\Lotus\Notes\Data folder on a PC. On a Macintosh, the best way to find it is to search for any *.id files. If more than one person uses the LN Client on your computer, there may be multiple user.id files. If so, the files may be named yourname.id instead of user.id. It is always a good idea to keep a backup of your user.id file.
Have your departmental secretary submit a CTC Request for Services to the Network and Servers section. If you already have an account, simply request to have the Client software installed and include all necessary information.
The Lotus Notes Client program cannot be used through a non-FHSU Internet connection. You must connect through FHSU's VPN (Virtual Private Network) to use the LN Client from off campus.
Browser access through iNotes may be done using ANY Internet connection. This is the recommended method for accessing your Lotus notes e-mail and calendar from off campus.
If you use Workflow applications or have other special needs that require use of the LN Client software from off-campus, you should consider requesting a University laptop with VPN access.
