How to ignore localhost requests from EPG

This article applies to the following products:

  • Messageware EPG 2019
  • Messageware EPG 2016
  • Messageware EPG 2013



EPG redirects localhost requests to the FQDN of the local server, which may cause unexpected behaviors.   



  • Navigate to where EPG is installed (C:\Program Files\Messageware\Common Files)
  • Open the core.config.xml in elevated notepad++
  • Change the value of ID 78 "Ignore Local host requests" to 1
  • Save the file
  • Navigate to Services > Restart the World Wide Web Publishing Service

(Note: This setting will be overwritten when a new version of core will be installed. This value should be checked every time EPG is upgraded or a new version is installed)
