SAP Web Dispatcher generated URL

Hello, I test the WDP in two scenarios:

1 scenario

a User opens a Browserwindow and types the Url of the WDP e.g.:


As parameter "icm/host_name_full" on the WAS the hostname of the WAS (was-host) is used.

This scenario is working well!

2. scenario

The Browser is opend via SAPGUI. E.g. via transaction SICF - Pingtest. The URL ist generated automatically:


This is working too, but the access ist not via the WDP!

When I change the value of "icm/host_name_full" to wdp-host the URL is generated with the wdp-host (http://wdp-host:8002/sap/bc/ping?sap-client=200) but I get a Error in the Browser:

500 Dispatching Error

Error: -26

Version: 7010

Component: HTTP_ROUTE

Date/Time: Wed May 20 10:53:36 2009

Module: http_route_mt.c

Line: 3217

Server: maverick__02

Error Tag:

Detail: no valid destination server available for '!ALL' rc=4

My question: How do i configure the WAS so that a SAPGUI genarated URL also connects via WDP?

    The answer is to use table HTTPURLLOC to tell your WAS that a Web dispatcher exists and that it should generate URLs using the web dispatcher host.

    The big problem is when some people need access from a remote place thru a web dispatcher and others are on site and can't use the web dispatcher which is in a DMZ.

    The web application lauched via sapgui will work either from the distant site or the local site but not from both sites together...

    Check the wiki [Using Reverse proxies with SAP software|] for excellent information on HTTPURLLOC and your question.

      Hello Olivier, this describes exactly what i need. Thank you very much!

      People are supposed to access only from remote site, so this is not a problem
