How can I find server information if I cannot follow a link?

If you are provided with a link, for example in an email, that does not work, you will need to create a connection record with the server.

To find server information if you cannot follow a link


  1. Right-click the link and choose Link Properties
  2. Make note of the Hint displayed at the bottom of the dialog box.
  3. Click File > Open > Notes Application
  4. In the Look In field, type the hint noted in Step 2, for example servername/1/Acme.


If you have access to the server, this will automatically create a connection record. You can then click the original link to open it. If you don't have access to the server, contact your system administrator.
