    <crn:parameter name="gateway">
    <crn:value xsi:type="xsd:anyURI">http://server:8081/cognos8/cgi-bin/cognos.cgi</crn:value>

    Additional Information

    from COGNOS 8 help
    A Report Link in an Email Notification Does Not Work
    If a report link in an email notification does not work, the Gateway URI may not be configured correctly.

    You must change the host name portion of the Gateway URI from localhost to either the IP address of the computer or the computer name. If the URL in the email contains localhost, remote users cannot open the report.
