I have GroupWise 8.0.3hp1 on NetWare 6.5.8 and a Vibe 3.3 install on
SUSE 11 (the downloadable Vibe demo virtual machine from Novell's site).
I have recently started upgrading GroupWise clients on Windows 7 PCs
(64bit), and have been testing Vibe. I have run into a problem with
HTML links in GW clients not working on PCs where the GW client has been

This problem occurs using the GroupWise 8.0.3hp2 and 8.0.3hp3 clients,
but does not occur on a 8.0.2hp2 client, so it appears to be GroupWise
client related. I haven't tested any other client versions.

1. When using the GW 8.0.3 client, if I select any of the "Novell Vibe
OnPrem", "Favorites", or "My Teams" folders, I can see the Vibe Feed
display showing entries for sites I'm following. But clicking on the
links in these entries does nothing, so I cannot use the Vibe Feed to go
directly to files, profiles, etc. The same Vibe Feed links from the
Vibe web browser interface or from a GW8.0.2hp2 client works fine.

2. If I have e-mail digest notifications setup to let me know when
changes are made to a folder or file in Vibe, the e-mails are delivered
to me just fine. But once again, none of the links in the e-mails work
when using the GW8.0.3 client. Clicking on them does nothing. If I
look at the e-mail message source, I can copy-and-paste the URLs
directly into a browser and they work fine, so the URLs themselves are
correct. Again, these links work fine if I use the GroupWise WebAccess
or a GW8.0.2hp2 client.

Is the GW 8.0.3 client is blocking these HTML links? I receive no
notification from the client asking whether to "unblock" any
links/scripts/images when viewing messages with these Vibe links.

Any suggestions for getting these to work on GW 8.0.3 client?
