Martin,

The tech note mentioned should describe all those values. During install
you can leave them blank and set them manually later in the server config

>From memory that will be the path to the omnis web server plugin. ie.
omnisapi.dll on windows and nph-omniscgi on OSX.

I use the web server method so it would look like
https://192.168.1.48/cgi-bin/omnisapi.dll
