  8. Next you can configure your ports and set a hostname (which should be the fully qualified domain name) by clicking on Customize:
  9. As seen in the following screenshot, you can disable NetBIOS if it is not required in your network. You should also check the boxes to encrypt and compress network traffic and enter the fully qualified domain name of the server. These settings will be incorporated into the server document, which is in the directory. Click on OK to go back to the previous screen and see your changes.
  10. Verify your settings and then click on Next to continue the setup process.
  11. Now name the primary Domino server, that has the directory you want the new server to be using. Enter the Domino name or you may enter the IP address or the fully qualified name. Click on the Next button when you are ready to move forward:
  12. Next you will need to select the option to set the server to use the directory as a Primary directory and then click on Next to continue.
  13. The setup process now asks if you want it to set some security related items automatically. Leave both options checked and click on the Next button:
  14. Finally, review the options which you have selected and if you are happy, click on Setup to complete the setup of the Domino server:
