Summary0007697: OpenSim.ini.example [Network] ExternalHostNameForLSL default not very helpful. $BaseURL minus leading http:// might be better
DescriptionOpenSim.ini.example has [Network] ExternalHostNameForLSL by default set to a local machine name... not a sensible IP/DNS name example. The default is not even the local IP network number that is shown as an example

ExternalHostNameForLSL could possibly more usefully use the [Const] $BaseURL parameter value. But unfortunately that starts with http:// and ExternalHostNameForLSL appears to need just the IP number or name. The default could be $BaseURL if a change was made to the way ExternalHostNameForLSL was read - stripping off the http:// if necessary perhaps?
Additional InformationCurrent comments in OpenSim.ini.example reflect the default set...

   ;# {ExternalHostNameForLSL} {} {Hostname to use for HTTP-IN URLs. This should be reachable from the internet.} {}
    ;; Hostname to use in llRequestURL/llRequestSecureURL
    ;; if not defined - default machine name is being used
    ;; (on Windows this mean NETBIOS name - useably only inside local network)
    ; ExternalHostNameForLSL = ""

I found this parameter was the only one that seemed to need to be amended to a sensible value when setting up a fresh standalone and using the default OpenSim.ini.example file. Only the [Const] values and the selected [Architecture] would then need to be changed.

I missed mention of the need for the [Const] changes in my commit in mantis 7696, though its pretty obvious. I will batch that up with some typo changes I have spotted in OpenSim.ini.example.
