Freeware Reader for *.NSF LN-Database required

  1. Freeware Reader for *.NSF LN-Database required

    Hallo,

    I need to VIEW/READ a Lotus Notes Database file (*.NSF) on a machine
    without LN installed.

    Is there any tool/viewer/reader for such purpose? No need for changing
    or writing anything into the database.

    Thanks and best regards

    HW Schwager

    The database can be viewed through a web browser, if the database resides on
    a Domino server. I don't think you can view it like locally.

    You could also try this:

    http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/NotesPeek


    NotesPeek is free and does not require the notes client. It is a very
    in-depth look at things, but it can still get you what you need.

    like they were saying :

    No, you can't. Something has to act on the request and feed the information
    to the browser.

    There's been a mention on the Notes list of NotesPeek - that won't help,
    either, as it needs to sit alongside the client.

    It strikes me that the easiest way to get access is to get hold of the
    client on the 90-day dem/eval licence from the Lotus/IBM website, and use
    the database through the Notes client that way. There may still be some
    issues with access control - if there's a consistent ACL in place on the
    DB, for example.

    Adrian,

    the Domino server can do that.

    Tim,

    I think NotesPeek needs the Notes client DLLs.

    Yes, it can - if you have one. I was agreeing with the second half of the
    statement - that you can't view it through a browser "locally" - Well, yes,
    you can, but you need the client, and if the OP had a Notes client and
    Domino server handy, he wouldn't be asking...

    Adrian,

    no, you don't need the Notes client on the client computer. The
    client can use a web browser.

    I think you're misunderstanding me.

    The OP has an .NSF file he wants to read. He doesn't have Notes or a Domino
    server.

    He *can't* use a web browser, as he doesn't have a Domino server to point
    it to. He can't just open an NSF into a browser.

    The fact remains that the OP is just going to have to obtain a copy of
    Notes, and downloading it from IBM on the 90-day trial is the best way I
    can think of.

    Adrian,

    how do you know?

    But he seems to be gone anyway, never to read any reply.
