How to find my [fully qualified hostname] for my Jazz Team Server?


Phil Beauboeuf (1112) | asked Nov 09 '15, 3:29 p.m.
I installed the Rational Team Concert 6.0.1 M5 Milestone locally on my Windows 7 laptop, but can't seem to point my web browser to the following address: https://[fully qualified hostname]:9443/jts/setup because I don't know what my fully qualified hostname is.  I've tried 'localhost' as well as the actual hostname of my machine with no success.  How can I determine what my [fully qualified hostname] for my Jazz Team Server is?

On windows run ipconfig  in a shell window.

C:\>ipconfig

Windows IP Configuration


Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

   Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :
   Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::7de4:fd42:128d:8285%13
   IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.122.192
   Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
   Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.122.1


Look for the IP address.  Then run nslookup that_ip_address

You can also define a hostname in  C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts  for the 127.0.0.1 IP and use that instead.

If you tried "localhost" and the hostname without success. Do the following to verify.
1. Run below command to verify the port 9443 is open.
netstat -aon | findstr 9443
(the number at the right hand side in the result is the process ID of the running process listening at port 9443).
2. Temporarily disable Windows Firewall - it sometimes blocks everything for some reason.
