    Hi Mathieu,

    just two comments:
    1) Starting TREX 710 REV 58 you can not use the sapinst anymore (in the REV 58 it’s  a part of the TREX installation SAR file yet ) . You need to take either SWPM instead , or just run the script as described in the installation guide.

    2) When you setup the RFC connection you don’t need to do any changes in the TREXDaemon.ini file  !!! all necessary changes will be done by the TREXAdminTool automatically!

    Friends – I have installed TREX 7.1 for EP 7.0 . After connecting TREX to EP, I get error ” No active HTTP server found”.

    One more thing. I didnt find any HTTP proxy setting while installing TREX using SWPM. Please advice.
