Define the Symbolic URL

After you define the external host, you can define the symbolic URL. Notice that the URL defined here uses the Virtual Name of the host, not the actual name. Also notice that, when you select the external host from the Host Name field, it is populated with the actual host name. When SWE constructs the URL, it substitutes the actual Host Name for the Virtual Name in the URL. In this example, the fixup type is Default, because the page is displayed in the browser using the <iframe> tag and therefore, it is recommended that links not be fixed up in any way.

Figure 2 shows the symbolic URL defined for this example.
