To connect to a remote enterprise server

In order to connect to a remote enterprise server, you first need to set up a new connection to the appropriate directory server.

  1. Right-click anywhere in the Server Explorer view and select New > Directory Server Connection.
  2. Specify the remote machine in one of the following ways:
    • Click Name and enter the name of the host
    • Click Server Address and enter the IP address of the host in IPv4 format
  3. Specify a port number.
    Note: By default, Server Explorer displays the group of available enterprise servers on your local machine accessible on port 86. Contact the remote machine Administrator to determine the port number of the remote machine.
  4. Click Finish. A list of enterprise servers available on the remote machine is added to Server Explorer.
