Setting the External Server URL for Apple devices

There have been numerous PMRs about this. To avoid this problem, the Traveler code will be changed to calculate the URL on a per request basis if this value is not set (instead of doing it once and caching it at that point). This requested server document change would come out at the same time as that fix which would put it back to the current text, so the server document help will not be changed.

In all cases, it is still better/safer to set the External Server URL to avoid any possibility of confusion.

Setting the External Server URL for Apple devices

I just had to do this after upgrading from Traveler 8.5.1 where the External Server URL field was not required. The help text on this field in the server document needs to be changed as well (IBM) because it only states that you need this if using a reverse proxy.
