Getting the correct SID on localhost is important because it’s usually determined by your web host. You can get it by opening a web browser and going to localhost, then typing in the IP or resolving the domain name. If you succeed in resolving the domain name, you’ll get a page similar to the one below.
It is possible to determine the SIDs (names of hosts) running on your localhost using the id command. The most common use of this is to check if your browser currently has a session open on localhost:8080. You can do this using the free open source w3m browser of your choice. Of course, using cPanel or another similar solution you could also do this from a command line interface rather than from within your web browser…
The SOAP API is implemented using standard SOAP PHP client libraries. The SID is obtained from the SOAP Server field. This allows you to use localhost instead of 127.0.0.1. To receive messages from localhost go to http://localhost:8080/sender and http://localhost:8080/receiver respectively. You can also use webhooks to automatically trigger commands when certain events occur. The default configuration has an array of variables we can use when triggering commands, however you could easily define your own if needed:
Does my computer has SID installed?…type localhost into Google to check. If you see any number after 127.0.0.1 (the IP for this network), you have installed SID. Whether your firewall allows this depends on your ISP (Internet Service Provider). Most ISPs will take care of software installations for you automatically — but in some instances (such as Comcast) there may be a manual step required.. The IP address 127.0.0.1 (or any other single IP)
