Hi,

I've been working on Eclipse for ABAP development before, but I am facing a peculiar issue since a day now. I am trying to connect to a new system on my Mac through Eclipse Oxygen. I am getting an error while logging in as shown in the picture.

I've maintained the I.P. address in the appropriate file /etc/hosts and am still getting this issue. Can someone help/guide me to identify a solution to address the issue?

Thanks in advance,

Kiran

Does the connection via SAPGUI work?

Hi Uwe,

The connection works via SAPGUI.

And what if you enter the IP Address directly into Eclipse ?

(Use "Define a new system connection from scratch..." under "New ABAP Project")

The error says pretty clearly that whatever name you provided for the system is not known.

Something is odd: a .local domain means it's on your laptop, yet I am not aware of any developer/trial systems with a SID 'EQ1'. Is this a local system?

Is there a hosts entry matching the error message and does it have the IP of the system you're trying to access?

Another thing to try is to put the IP address in directly into Eclipse instead of the hostname.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for your prompt response. EQ1 is a local system. I've maintained the IP of the system in Eclipse and not the hostname.

I've been able to connect to the system a few days before with the same settings; but surprisingly the system is not getting connected now.

I've maintained the IP address in the hosts file too.

Regards,

Kiran

OK, I'd suggest back to basics (if you haven't already done so), have you tried pinging the hostname from the command line?

Next steps also try telnet or ssh, using the correct port number.
