Are there any good practices to follow when traveling with Notes®?

When you travel within or outside the United States, you can make using HCL Notes® easier by remembering a few tips.

  • Make sure you have a working LAN connection cable or wireless hardware/software, extra batteries, a power adapter, and your HCL Domino® administrator's phone number.
  • If you don't have a local Help application, install the Help application locally so you can get Help on Notes® when you travel. For information on installing this application, see your Domino® administrator.
  • If you're going to work in local replicas of applications, create them before you leave the office because it will take less time than creating them on the road over a possibly slow connection.
  • Make sure you have bookmarks in your browser and current authentication information for any firewall sites your organization uses.
  • If you plan to use remote access software and a dialup modem, make sure you have the phone numbers of the servers you want to call configured in RAS in your operating system. If your organization has an enterprise phonebook for network servers, make sure you have a local replica of it. Make sure you have a phone cord. Also, many countries have different phone jacks, so if you're using Notes® on a laptop in a different country, you probably need a specific connector for the country you are visiting.
