Additional Details

Some backend systems require the host header to contain the hostname of the server itself instead of the hostname of the reverse proxy. So far, adjusting the host header required configuring a modification rule in SAP Web Dispatcher. Now, subparameter wdisp/system HOST_HEADER = {PRESERVE|REPLACE|<any hostname>} can be used to adjust the host header of EXTSRV systems.
