Hiding server name in the end user url (accesspoint)

Hi,
QlikView 11 SR2 is installed on a 64 bits server, user QlikView webserver (not iis). Let's say that the server name is "toto".

I can log in correctly (and automatically, without having to specify user/password) once I used the usual URL : http://toto/qlikview and get redirected to the accesspoint.

An alias has been created, to hide the server name to the users. Let's say that this alias is called "titi", it should make possible for users to connect at : http://titi/qlikview


As I try to connect to http://titi/qlikview, the authentication does not work, and i get a message "login failed" (page login.htm) .

What should I try to make it work ?

You can find herejoined screen capturesof the way "titi" s configured.

Thanks a lot for your help !!!!

I have already tried the following :

 If you're using QlikView Web server, there are some additional "tweaks".
First of all, you need to configure QVWS to "listen" to the host URL. By default QVWS is configure to listen to http://server/qlikview (among other URL:s required).
If you open config.xml (%PROGRAMDATA%\Qliktech\QvWebServer) you notice there are a number of virtual folders defined. What you need to do to have QVWS listen to a root folder is to create an additional folder tag, but leave the <NAME>-tag blank:
<Web>
<Folders>
<Folder>
<Name></Name>
<Path>C:\Program Files\QlikView\Root</Path>
</Folder>
<Folder>
<Name>QlikView</Name>
<Path>C:\Program Files\QlikView\Web</Path>
</Folder>
In this case my root-folder would be in C:\Program Files\QlikView\Root (make sure to create this folder).
Restart QVWS and pay attention to the log generated in %PROGRAMDATA\Qliktech\QvWebServer\Log. Notice there's now a register prefix for http://+:80/.

Great, now we have a root folder for http://server. As you cannot use ASP in an easy way with QVWS, instead create a default.htm page in the root-folder (C:\Program files\Qlikview\Root). Use a meta-tag do redirect to /qlikview, like:
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="2;url=/qlikview">
</HEAD>
<BODY>
redirecting please wait...
</BODY>

</HTML>

Re: Hiding server name in the end user url (accesspoint)

Hi,

Need to talk to your DNS people and have them create a CNAME record for you.

Have you added the new site to your trusted sites in IE?
