Table of Client types that are connecting to a Sametime server

Technote (FAQ)


There are a variety of ways to connect to an IBM Sametime server. Is there a way to configure allowed client types? Can certain client types be blocked?

Also, can you see which users are connecting to a Sametime server using a custom-built client, a Sametime client, or a Notes client?


Clients who log in to a Sametime server declare their client type upon log in as follows:

Determining the client type

You can enable the following debug setting in the sametime.ini file to determine the client type for any client:


Then check the stcommunity_*txt trace file for  eType= or for the user name of the user that you are testing with.

Configuring allowed client types

A Sametime server can be configured to allow only certain clients to log in based upon their unique Client ID (that is, blocking any other clients). The following flag can be added to the [Config] section of the sametime.ini file:

to specify the allowed login types. This list of allowed login types should be comma-separated, and should contain the client types in hexadecimal format, but without the leading "0x". For steps, refer to "Configuring allowed client types" in the Sametime product documentation.

To specify an anonymous client, add 0x0800 to the client ID value; for example:

Sametime Connect 8.5.2 client ID = 0x130D
Anonymous Sametime Connect 8.5.2 client ID = 0x1B0D

Both the authenticated and the anonymous version of each client ID is included in the table above.

This flag affects all log-ins where this Sametime server is the home server. By default (if this flag is not specified), all login types are allowed.

Example: The following client IDs limit log-ins to the Sametime Connect client (authenticated users and anonymous users) and the Notes 9 embedded client (authenticated users and anonymous users)
    Example sametime.ini file:

Note: after updating the sametime.ini file, you must restart the Sametime server for the changes to take effect.

Example entry from stlog.nsf when client connects, with annotations:

Severity: Very Low
Community Server Event Type: Login
Date and Time: 01/29/YYYY 10:01 AM
IP Address:
Application Name: unknown type(0x1201) This indicates the Notes client release (Notes client 6.5.4 CCH2 ). This parameter also differentiates between different Notes clients .

User ID: CN=User Name/OU=IS/OU=US/O=IBM
IBM Lotus Sametime Connectivity: Direct
Client Version: V6.5.1 This is the version used by the Sametime components in the   relevant client. For example, the release of toolkit used to develop the IM feature in the Notes client.

Configuring the preferred login list

You can also use the values in this table to configure the preferred login list -- the login order that Sametime should use to determine which client type, for users connected through several different. clients, should receive the instant messaging session. For steps, refer to "Configuring the preferred login list."
