Abap trial version - see a web dynpro application from an external network

Hi gurus,

I'm testing web dynpro using SAP Netweawer 7.01 trial version.

I would like to show a web dypro application to someone that is not in my local network.

If the URL generated is

http://localhost:8000/sap/bc/webdynpro/sap/<zapplication>

visible from my notebook, what should be the URL visible from someone that is not me?

Is it possible? Or I'am too optimistic?

Thanks

Guido

    Hello ,

    To run the application from some other system , first of all you need to open the http connection to your local from other system . Then only the application can run .

    I think you can not run the Application of trial version from other Systems .

    Regards

    Vivek

      Sure you can. The URL that gets generated is for localhost. This allows for access to the trial system from the local laptop only - but bypassing the Fully Qualified Domain Name check. You can alter this setting by changing the icm/hostname_full instance profile parameter. You should change this to a fully qualified domain name that is registered for the machine that the system is installed on within your DNS. The rest is up to how you have your machine configured on the network. In some networks, workstation names are not registered into DNS and you would have to setup a hosts file entry for the IP address of the trial version system onto the client you want to connect from. Other networks do allow the hostname of all client machines to register into their DNS. You would have to check and see how your particular network is setup.
