Is it possible to set the hostname or IP address used by the help system found in IBM SPSS Statistics?

Technote (troubleshooting)


In certain environments the default use of the computer name may be undesirable or non-functional as an address for the browser based help system used by IBM SPSS Statistics . Being able to set this to another value (the loop back address or a fixed IP address, or another appropriate DNS or NetBIOS name) may be beneficial.

Resolving the problem

At this time configuring this is not possible. A user must manually change the location shown in the launched browser session to whatever value is desired/required each time the help system is launched.

A request for this to be configurable has been submitted and may appear as a feature in future versions of the software.
