    SAP R/3 ECC 6 has a; [ Host Name, IP address, and DNS name, and Netbios name on a windows network]

    If no firewall is in between, then you can use any of those names.

    IF a firewall is there, then you have to have a path through the firewall that allows port 3200 passage. Port forwarding of 3200. Port 3200 is for the SAP GUI.

    My set up on a VMware server with SAP R/3 ECC 6 and win2k3R2 server.

    Outside IP address
    internal IP address ecc6
    internal IP address ...ecc6 and 2nd NIC card on same server.

    If the internal network is and has a DHCP and DNS server, then use the internal IP address to access the VMware SAP R/3 ECC 6 server

    In the sap GUI put the internal IP address.

    For Outside side access from the WAN side use the outside IP address,, put that in the SAP GUI.

    Just change your Local A LAN IP to VMware LAN IP?

    internal IP=

    "Can u tell me tht is ur vm lan ip."?

    Can you tell me that is your VMware LAN IP? Yes.

    DOES your VMware SAP R/3 ECC 5 server have two NIC cards?
    IF yes, then put that IP address in the SAP GUI.
