Use this tab to define connection settings to the Cryptshare Server.

The Cryptshare for Notes application needs to be registered at the Cryptshare Server as part of the setup process. The registration process creates a file called "client.store". This file contains information the Cryptshare for Notes uses to authenticate at the Cryptshare Server.

To register proceed as follows:

  1. Enter the Cryptshare Server URL.
  2. Set up the proxy configuration.
  3. Create or select a directory for the client.store file and a directory for the files to be transferred in the file system of your Domino Server before proceeding with the following steps.

    Please make sure to set Read, Write and Delete rights to the directories for your Domino Server.

  4. Create the client.store file by clicking on the button .
  5. Click the button in the line "Client ID" to create a new Client-ID.

    Error creating ClientID

    If CS4N reports an error when creating the ClientID, please check the network credentials of the Domino Server (system user). Ports 8080 and 443 have to open for access to the Cryptshare Server. For detailed information about the network access rights, you can use the windows commands nslookup <URL> and tracert <IP address>.

  6. Click the button to copy the Client ID into the clipboard in the next dialogue.
  7. Open the web admin frontend of your Cryptshare Server and paste the Client ID into the corresponding field in the tab "Add-On-Products --> Cryptshare fro Notes".
    Fill out the "Description" field and add the entries with the button (to the right of the input "Client ID" field) and save your entries with the button .
  8. If you see an SSL error message during the following steps, please proceed as described in chapter Add a self-created SSL certificate to the list of trusted certificates on the Domino Server (optional)
  9. Click on the button in the line "Minimum Password Length" to read this value from the configuration of your Cryptshare Server and store the value here. If you change the value on the Cryptshare Server later, you can refresh the value in CS4N by clicking the button again.
  10. Click on the button in the line "Max. size of files to be transferred" to read this value from the configuration of your Cryptshare Server. If you change the value on the Cryptshare Server later, you can refresh the value in C4N by clicking on the button again.

Connect using IP address

Option. If you are using a reverse proxy server, you may have to turn this option on to connect directly via an IP address instead of using a DNS name.

CS4N will still use the Cryptshare Server URL for building the download links for recipients.

ProxyIf you connect via a proxy server you need to provide the connection details for your Domino Server to connect to the Cryptshare Server via the proxy.

Button Deletes authentication data from the CS4N application (i.e.: the client.store file on the Domino Server). Also the following entries are deleted: Client ID, minimum password length, maximum transfer size.
Client ID

ID that has been read from the client.store file. This ID needs to be registered on the Cryptshare Server to allow CS4N to authenticate. If you are using a Cryptshare Server prior to V2.6.2 you also need to make sure to set the verification mode to "Client".

The button  takes you to the web admin frontend of your Cryptshare Server.

Minimum Password LengthMinimum password length according to the Cryptshare Server configuration.
