You can find the Host name-XI's ABAP StackSystemstatus--Hostname

You can find the IP -

open the SAP GUI Logon pad-click on change item--take the IP of Application Server which u have there

You can find the Port--5xx00, where xx is the System number. u can find out this from the SAP GUI Logonpad-change item
