Know methods to overcome the errors in Lotus Notes like “unable to find any path to server”, “Remote System No Longer Responding”, etc.
Sometimes when a Lotus Notes user tries to connect to the Domino Server, then he may get some error messages like:
“Unable to find path to server”

You can check the connections by tracing TCP/IP by clicking on File >> Preferences >> User Preferences >> Ports >> Trace (Lotus Notes email client) or Trace Command (Domino Server).
