HCL Sametime

Aaron Burden: Fountain pen and a notebook
The last days i used to integrate Sametime in IBM Connections. I did this a few times the last two years, but i used ST 8.5.1 and older Connections Versions. First of all, it is much easier to apply now. You mustn’t add Proxy entries to your IHS (IBM HTTPServer) or activate awareness lookup in profiles-config.xml – BUT you have to install exactly the right versions. I mapped the wc_defaultport of Sametime Proxy to 80 and 443, so i mustn’t have special thoughts on firewalls. Now i checked out uiextensions-config.xml and added the URL of my Sametime Proxy Server. A good description can be found in Connections Wiki .

Some more points to my working configuration of Single Sign-On in Lotus Notes. Automating configuration with plugin_customization.ini I do a lot of software tests with my productive Notes Client (on Mac OS), so i often delete the Expeditor-folder in ~/Library/Application Support/Lotus Notes Data/. So i place configuration details in /Applications/Notes.app/Contents/MacOS/rcp/plugin_customization.ini, then the settings get automatically applied. # Connections Config com.ibm.lconn.client.base/server=http\://connections.example.com/profiles com.ibm.lconn.client.base/authtype=DOMINO-SSO com.ibm.lconn.client.base/dominosso.dominoresolveservername=false com.ibm.lconn.client.base/authserver=$hierarchical Domino-Server-Name$ com.ibm.lconn.client.base/dominosso.useclustermates=true com.ibm.lconn.client.base/dominosso.preferred.username.field=ShortName com.ibm.lconn.client.base/policy-mode=OVERWRITE com.ibm.lconn.client.base/enableConnectionsIntegration=true # Sametime Config com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.community/name=$Name for Community$ com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.community/host=$Hostname of Sametime Server$ com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.community/defaultAuthType=ST-DOMINO-SSO com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.community/authServerUrl=$hierarchical Domino Server Name$ com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.community/loginByToken=true com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.community/tokenLoginOnly=true com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.community/loginAtStartup=true com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.login/autologin=true com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.login/alwaysLoggedIn=true com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.imhub/disableExit=false # Status Updater Fix to show profile pictures com.ibm.lconn.statusupdates/download.image.enabled=true Sametime will only apply the settings of plugin_customization.

Installed it on android. Functions are ok, but i found no way to hide offline contacts. After all it is the first sametime client in the marketplace and gives me the possibility to chat with my colleagues. http://schmhen.wordpress.com/2011/03/14/sametime-client-for-iphone-and-android-available/
