> If authentication is enabled on the web ui, then a cookie is used to keep track of the
authentication information. There is normally a domain associated with the cookie. Since ip
address doesn't have any domain , the cookie will not be sent by the browser while making
http calls with ip address as the destination server.
> This will break browsing files system via web ui , if authentication is enabled.
> Browsing FileSystem via web ui, should use datanode's hostname instead of ip address.
