Setting HCL Connections server preferences for Files

You can provide your HCL Connections password or specify the address of the server in the Connections preferences page.

If you are already using the Connections Activities sidebar application, the preferences should already be set for you to access Connections Files. If you need to modify the settings, the Connections Server Settings section of the preference page contains the information required to log in to the Files panel of the sidebar. To set the server preferences, complete the following actions:

  1. From the panel menu, select Preferences.

  2. Fill in the following fields in the Connections Server Settings section:

    Field Description
    Server URL Type the Web address of the Connections activities server, beginning with either https:// or http://For example:

If you know that the server requires a secure, encrypted connection, begin the address with https://

If the Web address that you normally use to access the Activities feature has a value other than <server_name>/activities, specify the server URL using a syntax similar to this:

Note: Your administrator might have already provided a value for this field using an administrative policy. If so, do not change the value.

| |User name|Type your user name for logging into the Connections server.| |User password|Type the associated password.|

  1. Click Apply to save your changes, and then click OK to close the Preferences window.

The next time that you use Notes®, the new settings are used to log you in to Connections automatically.
