2225514 - Wrong host name for Kapsel AppUpdate via SMP 3.0 - SMP


The Android Kapsel AppUpdate plugin tries to download the last version from the wrong host name.
The Kapsel application normally communicates with the host "", which is an Apache Reverse proxy.
But in that case the AppUpdate plugin tries to download the latest version from "", which is the SAP Mobile Platform server(SMP)
behind the Apache server and which is not reachable from outside the network.
URL rewrite in SMP is activated which works for everything, also for the update query, but not for the download.
