It is important to know the name of your host computer when using FME Server. During the installation, you will be prompted:
- To enter the hostname for connecting to FME Server (with Express installation),
- To specify the host that will run the FME Server Core (with Distributed installation), or
- To specify the name of the machine hosting the primary FME Server Core (with Engine installation).
It is essential to make sure you have the correct hostname for proper control and management of FME Engines as changing this post-installation is currently only supported for the FME Server Web Services.

|Do not use “localhost” as your hostname if you want FME Server to be accessed remotely!|
