Lesson 23. Working Remotely with Notes > Understanding Mobile Users

Understanding Mobile Users

A mobile user is one who works in Notes while disconnected from the Notes network. You become a mobile user when you are working at a desktop computer from home or by using a laptop computer from a client site, a regional office, home, or hotel. As a mobile user, you can connect to the Notes network via a modem, instead of a LAN or WAN.

You do not want to read and reply to mail while connected to the server over a modem. Working while connected via a modem is time-consuming and possibly expensive, particularly if you are calling long distance. Therefore, mobile users generally replicate their mail databases to their laptops or desktops at home. You can work in your local replica, saving phone time for the replication process. You can access your data quickly, make and store all new documents and updates, and send everything back to the server in one short phone call.
