Error in Transaction iView (EP 6)

I'm trying to setup a transaction iView. I think I may have setup the System Alias wrong. Whenever I try to preview it it returns this error

<MyAlias> substituted for actual alias name

===================================

Portal Runtime Error

An exception occurred while processing a request for :

iView : N/A

Component Name : N/A

Application URL ':///webgui/!' is not valid! Please check the protocol and host entries for system '<MyAlias>'..

===================================

Is there any complete documentation on how to setup a Transactional iView? I followed the EP help from help.sap.com but that's what led me to this error.

Thanks

    Hi,

    To use an transaction Iview you should have done the following,

    1) Defined a system and successfully tested the connection in system landscape editor.

    2) Specify the user mapping properties for the system alias defined.

    3) Use Windows GUI which use your local SAP logon to access the transaction. If you want to use WebGUI or GUI for HTML, It must be installed and configured.

    Thank you

      Thanks so much for your response. How do I test the Connection? I went to the system landscape editor, opened the system (in the edit menu all I have is 'Object', 'System Aliases', and 'Permissions') but I don't see how I can test the connection. The "Preview" button is disabled.

      I've got the user mapping setup correctly, because it doesn't ask me for that information if I preview the iView.

      I'll try to find out if WebGUI is installed.

      Thanks

    Hi,

    Application URL ':///webgui/!' is not valid! : That means you don't have any ITS instance with a SAP GUI for windows maintained in your system. You should first of all try to call a transaction via SAP GUI for windows.

      I went ahead and installed SAP GUI for windows. I then setup a Transaction iView that uses WinGUI instead of WebGUI. I can successfully run this transaction in SAP GUI, but when I try to preview it in the EP iView editor I receive this error from a popup box that asks me if I want to see a more detailed error description.

      =======================================================

      service '' not found

      Component NI (network interface)

      Release 640

      Version 37

      Module ninti.c

      Line 494

      Method NiPGetServByName2: service '' not found

      Return Code -3

      System Call getservbyname_r

      Counter 1

      =======================================================

      Is there a service that I need to setup within my gui for windows?
