Hi z4955,

I found two links via a google search that may help you.

Domino Error Message

NSF Tools

Good luck.

wow.. that sounds a bit complicated! could you simplify it a bit? how do I find the IP and servername and add them to the HOSTS file? Or how would I fix it with proper DNS/WINS setup; on the routing server?

This behavior can be caused by one (or more) of the following:

1. Your TCPIP connection to the Internet/LAN is not working properly.
2. Your Lotus Notes is not using the correct Location settings.
3. A Server Connection document to your home server is missing.
4. Your home server is down or a part of the University network or where you work that the server is on is down.

First of all In you original post you say you are using Windows 2000 XP.

I have heard of Windows 2000 and Windows XP but never Windows 2000 XP.

What I listed above is what you are going to have to get checked out. I do not know where you are using this with but contacting the IT department at the other end will be a great help to you in getting this setup with all of the numbers and data etc.

My advice is PING the server you are trying to reach.

Windows users who can't already suck eggs...
Press <WindowsKey>+<R> together.
Type CMD
Press <enter>

You should see the servers IP address (if it cannot be contacted you don't have a Notes problem you have a network problem)

Use the Notes Database/Application Open dialogue (<Crtl>+<O>) and type the ip address you just found in to the Server (or Look In) box (the first box in the dialogue).
Press <enter>

You should get a lost files and directories on the server.

The client will tend to remember the address from now on.

I'm not suggesting here that there isn't an underlying problem.
