Problem

Subscribers receive an unspecified error when trying to use their telephone to record or playback (TRaP) voicemail messages using the Lotus Notes client with Lotus DUC csClient 1.2.2 or 1.2.3 installed.

Solutions

TRaP uses anonymous access in Lotus Notes and NTML authentication for setting up Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) security contexts in View Mail for Outlook (VMO)/Outlook. In Windows XP SP2, the anonymous logon for remote access is turned off by default. These steps need to be performed to turn on anonymous logon for remote access for TRaP to work in Lotus Notes. With the anonymous logon for remote access turned on, TRaP works with the Windows XP SP2 firewall either disabled or enabled.

Solution When You Use Windows XP SP2 with the Firewall Off

When you use Windows XP SP2, modify the local security option DCOM: Machine Access Restrictions in Security Descriptor Definition Language (SDDL) Syntax in order to allow remote access for anonymous logon.

Complete these steps in order to turn on anonymous logon for remote access.

  1. Choose Control Panel > Administrative Tools.

  2. Choose Local Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options.

  3. Select DCOM: Machine Access Restrictions in Security Descriptor Definition Language (SDDL) Syntax.

  4. In the Access Permission window, highlight Anonymous Logon and mark Remote Access under Allow as Enabled.

  5. Click OK to exit.

  6. Restart the computer.

Solution When You Use Windows XP SP2 with the Firewall On

If the firewall is set to On, complete these steps in addition to the Solution When You Use Windows XP SP2 with the Firewall Off procedure.

  1. Choose Local Area Connection > Properties > Advance > Firewall Settings.

  2. Go to the Exceptions tab and click Add Program.

  3. Locate AvTrapConnectionHolderSrv.exe which is typically found under C:\ProgramFiles\lotus\notes.

  4. Click Add Port and enter Cisco Unity TRaP as the Name and 135 as the Port Number.

    Note: The port number is used to negotiate access to the Media Master, Cisco Unity ViewMail for Microsoft Outlook, the Exchange server, and other DCOM services

    Note: The specific port number might be different for some systems.

  5. Choose TCP, choose Change Scope > Custom List and enter the IP address of the Cisco Unity server.

  6. Click OK until you close the Windows Firewall window.

Windows XP SP2 locks down DCOM calls and prevents certain types of TCP traffic. DCOM and TCP are required for TRaP calls made using the Lotus Notes client with the DUC csClient installed.
