Proxy between Lotus Notes Client and Lotus Domino Server

Discussion in 'Lotus Notes Programming' started by Mihajlo Cvetanovic, Jan 27, 2004.

  1. I would like to build a proxy between client and server, which
    originally communicate on the 1352 port. Proxy should just tunnel
    data, w/o any changes. Is this possible, and is there a link to start
    from? How should I configure both client and server for this?

  2. I'll repeat the question, just in case... If I'm in the wrong group
    please let me know.

    Try using the Stunnel software for this.

    Why don't you just tick the box that allows Domino to create a VPN between
    the server and client?

  5. The reason is I want to create my own proxy between them. I kind of
    hoped it will work if I just tunnel data in a generic kind of way, but
    first experiments failed. In these situations you never know whether
    you did something wrong, or it's plain impossible. That's why I'm
    asking here.

    But let's play along. Can I customize Domino's VPN (is there some VPN
    API) with C++?

    So we are thinking the same:
    Normally replication traffic is not encrypted, but if either the server or
    the client has the feature enabled then the traffic is encrypted both ways.
    As the link now requires authenication and is encrypted I can justify
    calling this a VPN.
    The quality of the VPN is good but not state of the art.
    Can you do better with what you propose?
    Do you need to do better than what is natively offered?
    To enable this at the client:
    File/Preferences/User Preferences
    Ports/select the port and tcik "Encrypt network data".
    To enable this at the Domino server:
    Type in "load notes" and follow the same process.
    I hope we are discussing the same thing?

  7. I want to include 5-step authentication with RSA keys on smart cards,
    and encryption with any symmetric algorithm available. I already have
    this for HTTP and FTP, as well as for tunnel proxy (or generic proxy).
    Now I have a request to do it for Lotus Notes.
    We need to have it under our control (source code an' all). If a need
    arises where longer keys are required for either asymmetric or
    symmetric encryption algorithm we can produce the code.
