7.2 Connecting to Oracle IRM Server Manually

The easiest way to connect to Oracle IRM Server is to open a document that has already been sealed to a context on that server. If this is not possible, you will have to connect to the server manually.

Use the following procedure to connect to Oracle IRM Server manually:

  1. From the Windows Start menu, select Programs, then Oracle IRM Desktop, then Options.

    This opens the Oracle IRM Desktop Options dialog.

    Alternatively, you can right-click the Oracle IRM icon in the notification area (system tray) and select Options.

  2. On the Servers tab, select New.

  3. On the Add Server dialog, enter the URL of the server.

    The URL will be in the form although you will probably have to obtain the exact URL from the administrator of the server. The /irm_desktop extension is required.

  4. To check that the connection can be made, select Validate.

  5. To connect to the server, select OK.

If the connection details are valid, the server will be added to the list on the Servers tab.
