Lotus Notes error says Server not known

Hi Jacob,

 

You got the kind of error because you are trying to access the server from the client notes for the very first time. You need to create a connection document using your IP address. Below are the steps:

  • Go to file
  • Click new and choose server connection
  • Type in the connection type
  • Select the IP
  • Enter your server name
  • Under the advanced tab enter the IP address server
  • Save and then close

You can also add server name and IP in the host file C:%windir%system32driversetchosts

This solution worked for me. I hope it will solve your problem too.

Hi Michael,

One workaround for this problem is to add the IP and the server name of your Lotus Notes.

Navigate to C:%windir%system32driversetchosts

Edit the file with the Notepad and add there your IP and server name.

127.0.0.1 localhost loopback

::1 localhost

You need here to add the Lotus Notes IP address (as 127.0.0.1) and the Server name (as localhost).

Save the file, and restart the machine.

Best Regards,
