Unable to connect to SAP gateway to RFC server failed(hostname unknow)


Hi All,

I am trying to create a new Model(to connect to SAP R/3 server) using the following steps:

1.Selecting Import Adaptive RFC Model

2.Entering Model name,package,default logical system names

3.Selecting the single server option and giving the details of the SAP R/3 server.

When I try to connect it gives me the following error :

-Connect from SAP gateway to RFC server failed.

Also it mentions :

<b>"ERROR hostname 'sapR3' unknown "</b>

Where <b>sapR3</b> is the entry corresponding to the IP address in the host file.

Further I am able to establish a telnet session using the same hostname in command prompt.

I have searched the Internet for solutions, but I haven't found any yet.Any ideas?
