Groove Host

The Groove Host value is needed to direct your web service requests to the right place to reach Groove on your PC. With GWS implementation today, Groove looks to port 9080 for GWS requests. It may change in the future, so it is a good practice to check the registry to get the current port for GWS. You may want to set these in a module level section of code to enable all your application forms and classes to easily access this information.
