BES10 and Traveler 9
Daniel Nashed    


There has been some confusion about how BES10 will access Domino based mailfiles.
A couple of customers asked me to explain how this is going to work.
The following abstract describes briefly on high level how both will work together.

The current BES server uses a C-API based solution which access the Domino Mail-Databases via Notes protocol (NRPC).

With BES10 there is no native access any more and BES 10 only support devices with the new BB OS.
All communication between BES 10 and Domino will be over ActiveSync to a IBM Notes Traveler Server which will use native NRPC to access user's mailfiles.

So the communication is BES10 -> Traveler via ActiveSync
Traveler -> Domino via NRPC.

BB10 devices will normally connect to the BES10 server using the infrastructure that you already know.
So the same security and encryption applies for BB10 devices. You can use policies in a similar way you could use in previous BES releases.
The BES10 server will control the "business" part of the device.

For other device types like iOS and Android the connectivity will be directly from the device to the Traveler server using ActiveSync.
But the mobile device functionality of the BES10 server can be leveraged. So for iOS devices you can install a profile with a payload containing the ActiveSync account needed for Traveler and all sort of other settings.

BES10 and Playbook devices can also be connected directly to a Traveler server using ActiveSync.

When using BES10 and Playbook devices or the BES10 Server leveraging ActiveSync access you need Traveler 9 running on a Domino 9 server.
Both are planned to ship end of March 2013.

I hope this clarifies a bit how this new offering from Blackberry will work together with IBM Notes Traveler

Traveler 9.0.1 IF7
Fri, Nov 7th 2014 5:15a   Daniel Nashed
Finally Traveler 9.0.1 IF7 is available. I don't see a fixlist yet but I got a fixlist from a customer from the latest hotfix he got. The IF should fix all attachment issues which came up with IF6, includes the latest Android client and should also have an updated certificate for APNS. So now you can install 9.0.1 IF7 in combination with Domino 9.0.1 FP2 IF1 which introduces TLS 1.0 in one go with just one downtime.

Some Additonal TLS 1.0 Information
Thu, Nov 6th 2014 11:12a   Daniel Nashed
TLS 1.0 and the removal of SSL 3.0 from browsers that triggered the whole discussion is not just something that needs to be addresses on a Domino server. IBM has done a lot of work in quite a short time and now that customers are implementing the fix it shows that also other software is effected. Introducing TLS 1.0 for Domino was the first step from IBM to ensure that clients that only support TLS 1.0 and higher can still connect to the Domino server. For now IBM still has SSL 3.0 enabled [read] Keywords: agent connections domino ibm lotus notes notes client application applications database email java security server smtp

Domino TLS 1.0 SHA-2 Support to prevent POODLE has been shipped today
Mon, Nov 3rd 2014 6:16p   Daniel Nashed
As blogged before IBM was already working on addressing the POODLE attack by finally implementing TLS 1.0 for all internet protocols. Today IBM shipped an Interims Fix to introduce TLS 1.0 which is very important because many browsers and other software vendors are about to drop SSL 3.0 support. So you need those fixes to continue to use secure protocols like HTTS, secure SMTP, LDAP, IMAP, POP3, DIIOP.. There are a couple of changes which are described in the following Wiki documents.

TLS and SHA-2 Support and the POODLE Attack
Tue, Oct 21st 2014 12:11p   Daniel Nashed
IBM has officially responded to the POODLE attack and also officially responded to newer crypto standards. Very good news for Domino! IBM will introduce TLS 1.0/1.2 and SHA-2 support for all protocols soon! The current technotes mention a very short timeframe and it looks like we are going to get fixes at least for the current Domino 9.0.1 code stream. Some fixes will be also in the 8.5.x code-stream but some of the improvements like SHA-2 support cannot be back ported. So you should be pr [read] Keywords: domino ibm network security server smtp

Traveler Issues with Attachments containing special chars after updating to 9.0.1 IF6
Sat, Sep 27th 2014 6:12a   Daniel Nashed
Before leaving for holidays last week the first customer contacted me about issues with attachments that have blanks, umlauts or other characters in the attachment name. I could not reproduce it on iOS but on Android but without the error message in the log that he got. Meanwhile it is clear that this issue affects all devices types and there is a fix that should hopefully address this problem. IBM is working on a new IF to address the issue and also possible other related issues but mean [read] Keywords: ibm notes traveler mobile

My Top 3 Formula Commands for working in the Notes Client
Thu, Sep 18th 2014 11:16p   Daniel Nashed
All of those commands are not new at all. They are all round for a very long time. But they make my day easier. I am surprised that many still don't know at least the first two. The last one is more a convenience when working with replicas. @Command([AdminRemoteConsole]) Before Release 5 there wasn't an admin client and the admin/designer was integrated into the normal client. The old live console is still in the client and you don't need an admin client -- just the right per [read] Keywords: admin notes notes client

Important Update on Traveler iOS 8 Support -- You have to install an IF!
Mon, Sep 15th 2014 3:13p   Daniel Nashed
There are some last minute changes in iOS which are only in the final version. Apple changed the EAS Sync ID which used to match the Device ID. There has been planning for that change for a while but Apple should have introduce that change already in the Beta releases. However this change causes issues in device mapping for the companion/todo app. IBM released a IF for 9.0.1/9.0.0.1/8.5.3 UP2 today to address this issue and added some background logic to map the device ID. There is a A [read] Keywords: ibm ldd lotus traveler apple

Traveler iOS 8 Support
Wed, Sep 10th 2014 10:12a   Daniel Nashed
iOS is released soon (hopefully 17.9 for existing devices) and I already got some customer questions about it. There is a technote describing the Traveler support for iOS 8. The good news everything should work fine and new app versions for iOS are on their way. Traveler supports iOS 8 with 8.5.3 Upgrade Pack 2 and higher but I would highly recommend that you update to the latest and greates release 9.0.1 IF5 anyway. Only the latest IFs will recognize iOS 8 correctly because they have [read] Keywords: ibm traveler

Traveler 9.0.1 IF5 shipped
Wed, Jul 30th 2014 12:12a   Daniel Nashed
Traveler 9.0.1 IF5 shipped just in time for updating a customer yesterday -- after we planned the downtime for more than a month -- funny. First updated my Linux box before updating the customer server on Windows. The Linux silent install on Linux was a lot quicker than the one on Windows. There are a couple of important fixes for all devices types and a new version of the Android client. http://www.lotus.com/ldd/dominowiki.nsf/dx/Lotus_Notes_Traveler_APAR_listing#901IF5 IBM Note [read] Keywords: ibm ldd lotus notes notes client traveler apple blackberry linux mobile office password security server
