      Hi, this works if I want to access from a external network using a public ip?

      If your server is accessible from a public IP, yes. That depends on your organization's network configuration, firewalls, etc. I need to use a vpn to access the webgui from outside.

      Yes my server is accessible through sap router, so i think is possible, but I have tried with the configuration above but doesn't work, I am using the port 81 instead of 8000 I dont know if this can be the problem, I made a port forwarding rule in my router, in wich redirect all the trafic from the public IP with port 81 to the LAN ip of my server.

      http://<public IP>:81/sap/bc/gui/sap/its/webgui/

      What else can I do?

      Author's profile photo Steve Rumsby
      Steve Rumsby

      The router forwarding rule will need to forward traffic arriving on port 81 to port 8000 on the internal server IP. Is that what you have? If so, it does sound like it should work. If it still doesn't, then I must be misunderstanding your network config. I'm not sure what else I can suggest.

      You should use a Webdispatcher for that.

      Hi Gabriel Lopez.

      you definitely can be access it though the public IP if you can configure the system to a public IP or if you have a firewall then You can have a NAT.

      There are many ways to fulfill your requirement its not hard, let explain your situation.

      Thanks

      Hi,

      We want to reach webgui with ip address. http://10.14.7.125/...

      Login screen is ok, but i fill the login/password and try to logon, i get the login screen empty.

      In the Google Chrome Development Tools can be seen this:

      set-cookie: MYSAPSSO2=AjE0MDEBAAxTQUx.......fd; path=/; domain=.14.7.125

      This domain is wrong.

      Can anyone help me?

      Thanks!

      Hi,

      I have faced this issue accesing by IP instead of Hostname.

      Please try with hostname.

      Cheers.

      I found many articles, that ip address is ok.

      For example this one: http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-29485

      But i didn't find correct answer this question! 🙁

      Nice topic, so I think that if you change any thing in the SMICM parameters (RZ10), you will need to restart of SAP Server, right ?

      Author's profile photo Former Member

      Blog Post Author

      Basically there are 2 types of parameters in sap:

      •     Static
      •     Dynamic

      Static  parameters  won't take effect when immediately the value is set. Restart of an sap system is required for them to take effect.

      Dynamic parameters will take effect immediately in the run time.Restarting the SAP is not needed to to take effects.Parameter can be differentiated whether it is dynamic or static by checking in RZ11 transaction of SAP.

      regards 🙂

      Hi Anderson,

      When you change the ICM parameters, you don't need to restart the complete instance for the change to take effect. All you need to do is restart ICM by executing Tcode SMICM Administration->ICM->Exit hard->Global. This will restart ICM in matter of 2 seconds and there won't be a downtime of the server.

      How to Configure load balancing with WebGui.

      Thanks in advance.

      Hi Maruti,

      I think you can call message server directly with the URL http://<ms_host>:<ms_http(s)_port>/sap/bc/gui/sap/its/webgui for load balancing webgui. In the URL, determine ms_http(s)_port by the value of parameter ms/server_port_<xx>. You will need to maintain that parameter if its not found in RZ10.

      Eg: - http://test.domain.com:8100/sap/bc/gui/sap/its/webgui where,

      test.doamin.com is the fully qualified domain name of message server host

      8100 is the message server http port ( by parameter ms/server_port_0 = PROT=HTTP, PORT=8100 )

      Note - You can also use sap web dispatcher for load balancing.

      Regards,

      Yashith

      Hi,

      What should I do in order to hide the URL from the outside. I'm already using a rule file using the parameter.icm/HTTP/mod_0 = PREFIX=/,FILE=$(DIR_GLOBAL)/security/data/icm_filter_rules.txt

      When I call the webgui client using https://server.domain.com/weburl it takes me to the real URL instead of keeping the weburl that I'm using to filer (mask) the real URL.

      Thanks

      But now how can I do to “double click”  the transaction code ?

      For example ,  found  the VA01 transaction,  but I’m unable to start it….

      ( we hide the navigation bar to have a "lean" screen for salesman..)
