Detailed information for the notes.ini Keyword: 


Short Description: The maximum time to wait for completion after attempting ID download from the ID vault.


The maximum time to wait for completion after attempting ID download from the ID vault. Note that a download is attempted whenever a user miss-types the Notes password or enters a new password to obtain an ID from the vault.

For example, for an ID vault server, a small company uses an existing server already used for other applications. Server response can sometimes be slow, so the company uses the following setting to increase the delay to 10 seconds to give the vault server time to respond:


 If access to the vault server is slow, this setting can be used to solve two problems:
1) When a user enters the correct password for the ID in the vault but the ID is not downloaded within this period the user is told the password is wrong. The user must try again with the same password. To reduce the likelihood of this problem on slower systems, increase this maximum wait time.
2) When a user miss-types the password and the vault server does not respond with an error quickly, the user must wait this amount of time before they are told that their password is wrong

Select a value that is a balance between these two needs.

Default value:
Default value is 5000 (5 seconds).
