localhost in QaaWS for Xcelsius dashboards

To allow easy migration of QaaWS from one server to another it is recommended to use localhost instead of server name in QaaWS and in Xcelsius dashboard connection to QaaWS.

This however complicates the job of Xcelsius dashboard developer, because reference to localhost will not work for QaaWS connection if he works from his PC and not on the server.

You should either install Xcelsius on the server and develop dashboards there (probably via remote desktop). Or the dashboards should be developed with hardcoded server name and when the development finished, the connections should be rebuild with localhost as server name. This could be very tedious task.

As a workaround, you can add localhost with IP of the server to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts, e.g.

172.20.30.3 	localhost
