    The portal server should be accessed with the fully qualified domain name of that server.

    This is because the SAP logon ticket is stored as a cookie in the browser.

    It is a feature of cookies that they are only sent back to the domain that set them.

    This is to protect your privacy by making it harder to track your browsing across different websites.
