URL also can have similar forms, for example the WebAccess Live Demo project node can be reached at http://demo.broadwin.com/ 

o        Computer Name - If you are on an Intranet, or a standalone PC, you can enter the computer name of the WebAccess Project Node (for example "Server1"). This can be either a TCP/IP "host name" or the Microsoft Network name.

o        Local PC - If you are on a PC that has the Project Node software installed and a network card, you can use the default localhost address or url:


If you are on a standalone PC without a network card, you must use the computer name: (for example "http://Node1").

·   HOST name.  This is a name in the HOSTS file on your PC.  This might be used to allow users from outside an Intranet to use a Public IP Address and local users on the intranet to use a private IP Address. 

 Note – Using a Host File ,then  distributing that host file to legitimate users, can isolate your WebAccess System to other unauthorized user who do not have the Host File.  The Addresses in WebAccess are useless to any user without the Host file even if they guess a password.
