SAP Cloud Connector
This tool enables the SAP Cloud Platform which is hosted on the internet to access URL’s that are internal to your corporate network. The following example demonstrates how it can be installed and used in a Fiori Client application by making a webpage hosted on my laptop at http:\\127.0.0.1:8080\sapui5\hello.html accessible to the Fiori Client that has registered with the SAP Cloud Platform server. Another common use would be to make an OData service that is only accessible in an internal network accessible to the SAP Cloud Platform server.

<html> <head> <meta name="viewport" content="user-scalable=no, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1, minimum-scale=1, width=device-width"> </head> <h1>Hello World</h1> </html>
Here is the Fiori Client opening the same page using the URL
Note that it is proxied through the SAP Cloud Platform so that I no longer need to be connected to my work’s internal network to access the page.
