Mac+JavaGui+BW Project


I have a Mac and JavaGui and want to create a BW Project or a ABAP Project with Eclipse Luna. However I have difficulties with the connection, which is working in Java Gui.

During logon with eclipse it says:

Logon to system ORC failed (hostname 'WDFM32914109A' unknown)

The hostname is my local PC.

The Connection is builded in expert mode with the following string:


Do I need to add an additional router in the beginning of the connection string, or what does it mean, if it says hostname 'mymachine' unknown?




Hi Michael,

please add the line 


to your /private/etc/hosts file and restart Eclipse.

Best regards,
