[SOLVED] Is there a command to display of WF host + port name ?
Is there a command I can execute in Dev Studio which will tell me the host and
port name that my installation of WF is running on ?

I am asking this to try to create a URL to run a fex or access a file from a
launch page.

I appreciate any help .

Thank you.

here a neat way to find out.

Create an HTML ( launcher.htm )
Add an hyperlink to the file you want to call with an url.

Run Launcher.htm
Click the hyperlink and see where it leads you...
...or check the properties of the hyperlink ( in your browser ).

If that doesn't work. ( sometimes it create some wfservlet url that doesn't work ).

You could do the same with a drill-to another fex. That also will generete the exact URL for you. ( including parameters if needed ).

Good luck,

Have you tried deriving it from the &EXCELSERVURL variable?

My local one is -
&EXCELSERVURL = SET EXCELSERVURL=http://localhost:8080/ibi_apps

You can pass:
within site.wfs and then use these to create the full url.

Sorry to be pedantic Alan but I think the last one you mentioned should be URL_PROTOCOL.
