Example of a pass-through server topology

A pass-through server topology can benefit users and servers on the same network as the pass-through server as well as remote users and servers.

For example, the fictional Renovations company has a dedicated pass-through server that functions only to provide workstations and servers with access to destination servers. This server does not contain any databases. The pass-through runs all the protocols that the destination servers run so that users and servers that connect to it have access to the entire system.

The example topology requires the following configuration:

  • Passthru Connection document on the remote server to specify pass-through.
  • Connection documents on the remote server for connection to each destination server.
  • Modified Location document on local HCL Notes® clients to specify name of pass-through server.
  • Passthru Connection documents on remote Notes® clients to specify pass-through connection.
  • Modified Server documents (to allow appropriate access rights) on pass-through and destination servers.
