Notes configuration returns 'server not responding' error

I am having a problem installing Lotus Notes. After I log onto the network I want to install Lotus Notes, and everything goes well until the moment I start up LN and need to configure it. I give the name and suffix for the server I want to connect to, indicate I want to connect to a LAN server, choose my ID file and type in my password. Then I get the message "Server is not responding," even though the server is up and running. I also seem to be the only one with this problem. Could you help me?
Can you ping the server by name? Is DNS setup properly on your machine? Do you have a rogue hosts file entry for the server? Perhaps you have a bad connection document? Since you are the only one with the problem, I would guess the issue has to be on your machine.
