There are two main issues with installing IBM Notes on work computers:
1. No administrative access: If you do not have administrative access to your computer, you cannot install new software. Contact your IT department to install the software for you, or ask them to grant you temporary administrative access.
2. Network port 1352 blocked on Firewall: IBM Notes uses port 1352 to communicate with the Domino server. If you are installing IBM Notes and reach the configuration stage but are unable to go further, the most common cause is that your network has port 1352 blocked on the firewall (many office networks will not have this port open by default). Contact your IT department and have them open port 1352 for bidirectional communication on the firewall. Once this is done, you can continue with the IBM Notes configuration.
If your IT group requires further information, they can contact the Helpdesk directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-561-4650, option 3. Also see Firewalls and Replication – How to test if your network firewall is blocking your replication (below).
