For the purpose of the following discussion, GroupWise System
1 and GroupWise System 2 represent two separate GroupWise systems.
A direct link requires an MTA in GroupWise System 1 to have
access via a mapped drive or UNC path to a domain directory in GroupWise
System 2, or to have a TCP/IP connection to a domain’s MTA
in GroupWise System 2. Likewise, an MTA in GroupWise System 2 must
have the same type of access to GroupWise System 1.
To create a direct link between GroupWise System 1 and GroupWise
System 2, you would do the following:
- In GroupWise System 1, define one
domain from GroupWise System 2 as an external domain and then configure
a direct link from a domain in GroupWise System 1 to the external
domain. This allows GroupWise System 1 to deliver messages to GroupWise
- In GroupWise System 2, define one domain from GroupWise
System 1 as an external domain and then configure a direct link
from a domain in GroupWise System 2 to the external domain. This
allows GroupWise System 2 to deliver messages to GroupWise System
- After you’ve connected the two systems,
users can send messages to the other system by entering the recipients’ full
addresses (userID.post_office.domain or user@host).
If desired, you can simplify addressing by exchanging information
between systems, which causes user information to be displayed in
the Address Book. The easiest way to exchange information is to enable
the External System Synchronization feature in both systems. When
enabled, this synchronization constantly updates the Address Books
in both systems so that local users can more easily address messages
to and access information about the users in the external system. If
you don’t want to enable the External System Synchronization
feature, you can manually exchange information. For information
about External System Synchronization, see
