Webdispatcher via IP

Dear Gurus😊

We are trying to work via webdispatcher, using IP adress only, for example:

http://192.168.254.5:8080/sap/bc/nwbc

We cannot logon to abap webdynpro apllicaion, cause FQDN dump.

How can urge the webdispatcher to convert the 192.168.254.5 to FQDN, for example to sapeccdev.mydomain.local at any url prefix?

Regards

Vladimir Kogan

    Using FQDNs is a requirement for Web Dynpro ABAP. I suggest you define a DNS alias for WD and use also FQDNs in the back-end systems. See SAP note 1403326 for details.

    I do not understand the need to call the Web dispatcher using the IP Address but in any case you can look into use icm/HTTP/mod_<xx> to change the HTTP request before forwarding.

    Hi Vladimir

    I am not a sap webdisp expert but let me try this

    # SAP Web Dispatcher Redirect

    icm/server_port_0 = PROT=HTTP,PORT=8080,HOST=192.168.254.5

    icm/HTTP/redirect_0 = PREFIX=/,TO=/sap/bc/nwbc,HOST=sapeccdev.mydomain.local

    Is it helpful?
