Host alias settings

To view and configure a host alias, in the administrative console go to...

Configuration tab

Host Name Specifies the IP address, DNS host name with domain name suffix, or the DNS host name that clients use to request a web application (.war) resource, such as a servlet, JSP file, or HTML page.

For example, when the host alias name is myhost, the DNS name is myhost:8080, where 8080 is the port. A URL refers to this DNS as: http://myhost:8080/servlet/snoop.

For existing instances, the default reflects the value specified at product setup. For new instances, the default can be * to allow any value or no specification.

Data type String

Port Specifies the port where the Web server accepts client requests. Specify a port value in conjunction with the host name.

The default reflects the value specified at product setup. The default might be 80, 81, 9080 or a similar value.
